Proverbs 7:10-12 (ESV)

10 And behold, the woman meets him,

dressed as a prostitute, wily of heart.

11 She is loud and wayward;

her feet do not stay at home;

12 now in the street, now in the market,

and at every corner she lies in wait.

As the naïve man travels near the adulteress’ home at night, out of nowhere, she suddenly appears. She actively seeks her victim out and knows exactly what to wear in order to seduce him. She intends to take advantage of him, seeking to gratify her own desires. In the end, she doesn’t care about what happens to this man, as long as she gets what she wants. The adulteress is not satisfied with life and is continually on the prowl for something more attractive and exciting. She goes to the busiest places of town where the largest number of people will be found. Now, there’s nothing wrong with enjoying people, activity, and busy city life, but this woman goes in order to devour. She intends to use others for selfish gain. Do you use people to get what you want? If so, ask God to change you today, teaching you to love in a way that glorifies him.
