A self-indulgent lifestyle leads to poverty. If you focus on yourself, you will waste money on yourself – a moment of pleasure and then it’s all gone. The verse focuses in particularly on the risks of drunkenness and gluttony. Check your heart to see if it’s you. If you want to change your heart, see Matthew 6:21.
