[Each chapter in the Book of Proverbs contains thoughts that fit into a theme; they are not just random thoughts gathered together. In this “Saturday In The Proverbs” series, I will share a theme that I see in each chapter. But the cool thing about God’s Word is that you may see an entirely different theme. That’s great! If you do, I would love for you to share it in the comments below.]
My son, pay attention… (Proverbs 5:1).
Adultery can look exciting.
Pornography might seem harmless.
Sex outside of marriage may appear appealing…
…but only to the foolish!
Solomon warns of the perils of any sexual activity outside of marriage, but he also tells of the joyous satisfaction of sex inside of marriage.
His conclusion for us:
- DON’T even dabble in sexual immorality
- DO invest in your marriage
This is a powerful 1-2 punch to both find satisfaction in your spouse, and avoid the heartache illicit sexual activity is guaranteed to bring.
