I'm not drinking at Prom because...

If you don’t know me I’m Megan and I’m a senior.  I’m choosing to not drink at Prom because I know the consequences. Alcohol contributes to all of the leading causes of death among teens.  In my opinion, that’s a good enough reason to steer clear.  Drinking also hinders your relationship with God in the process.

As Matthew 5:48 states, “Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect."  Obviously, none of us can be perfect. That’s Jesus’ job. But what we do is strive to live for Him in everything we do.  By not drinking this weekend, you will not only be taking your life out of jeopardy, but you will also be setting a standard for yourself.

Christ died for us, so why shouldn’t we live for Him?
