Proverbs 5:3-4 (ESV)
3 For the lips of a forbidden woman drip honey,
and her speech is smoother than oil,
4 but in the end she is bitter as wormwood,
sharp as a two-edged sword.
The father strongly warns his son against the inevitability of crossing paths with women who want to lure him into sexual sin. Sex begins with speech, and the forbidden woman knows exactly what she’s doing as she seeks to wear down her victim with continual flattery and charm. Although she promises great pleasure and may seem captivating for the moment, her end is death and destruction. The consequences of sexual sin are huge, and many foolish victims have paid for their actions for years and even decades.We must keep ourselves from the messages that would lead to sexual sin, even if it’s only in our minds. If any books, TV shows, movies, magazines or Internet sites are enticing you to participate in sexual deviance, determine to put a stop to them today. God will judge those who don’t play by his rules when it comes to sexual behavior.
