Reading along with us in Proverbs? Here’s today’s reading:

Proverbs 7 (ESV)

My son, keep my words
    and treasure up my commandments with you;
keep my commandments and live;
    keep my teaching as the apple of your eye;
bind them on your fingers;
    write them on the tablet of your heart.
Say to wisdom, “You are my sister,”
    and call insight your intimate friend,
to keep you from the forbidden woman,
    from the adulteress with her smooth words.

For at the window of my house
    I have looked out through my lattice,
and I have seen among the simple,
    I have perceived among the youths,
    a young man lacking sense,
passing along the street near her corner,
    taking the road to her house

  1. Certainly adultery is a consistent theme in these first chapters of Proverbs and considering the issue that David and Solomon had with it, it certainly explains why. And considering the problem the world has with adultery and the lust of the eyes, these are wise words for us today. We more often find the adulteress on a screen then in the streets, but the private nature of pornography makes it more dangerous. And remember the adulterer could as easily be a man if David was talking to his daughter rather than his son.

    And don’t miss when the adulteress mentions fulfilling her vows, it refers to what she has done to make herself “right” with God. SO we have another lesson shrouded in the passage and that is how we use the things we do right as justification for doing things wrong. Like somehow we deserve it or we can get away with it because I have done my duty to God. I think we all know that temptation….selah….

  2. 1 My son, keep my words
    and treasure up my commandments with you;
    2 keep my commandments and live;
    keep my teaching as the apple of your eye;
    3 bind them on your fingers;
    write them on the tablet of your heart.❤️

  3. “Do not let your heart turn to her ways
    or stray into her paths.”

    Don’t even roam close! Reminds me of the verse that says, “flee sexual immorality”. It seems like many other temptations can be more easily evaded perhaps….this one God says “run away!”
