1 Thessalonians 5:6
Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.
I. PHYSICALLY. Abstain altogether from intoxicating liquors, or, at least, from their excessive use.
II. MENTALLY. By avoiding vanity, ambition, and other extravagant and unreasonable passions.
III. SPIRITUALLY. By keeping free from wild and unregulated enthusiasm in religion.
IV. CIRCUMSTANTIALLY. Don't make haste to be rich; and "when riches increase set not thy heart upon them."
V. SOCIALLY. Don't make too many friends, and don't impose on the kindness of those whose friendship you make.
(A. S. Patterson, D. D.)
