Proverbs (7)

Have you ever watched someone make a choice that you knew would not be good for them? You knew that the result would be bad, and you wanted to say, “Stop! Don’t do it!”
Our Bible Reading today tells about a woman who tempted a man to have sex with her. The woman was not his wife. The man probably knew this was wrong, but he ignored the wise words he had heard before. Verse 22 compares him to a “bull being led to the slaughter” or “a deer walking into a trap.” Verse 27 reminds us that the result of this kind of behavior is death of relationships and trust.
We need to run away from anything that causes us to disobey God. The wisdom that we find in the Bible will help us recognize evil and avoid it.
Be careful today. Stay close to God and run away from evil.
