09.04.2016 – Old Testament: Pro 5.9–11
To read the Bible in a year, read Proverbs 5–6 on September 4, In the year of our Lord 2016
By Don Ruhl
In Proverbs 5, Solomon gave strong warnings against adultery, explaining why we must not commit it,
Lest you give your honor to others,
And your years to the cruel one;
Lest aliens be filled with your wealth,
And your labors go to the house of a foreigner;
And you mourn at last,
When your flesh and your body are consumed…
Solomon wrote more on the topic, but what I have quoted above certainly explains things enough that all of us should avoid adultery as we would poison.
- Have you been tempted to commit adultery?
- If you overcame the temptation, how did you do it?
