PROVERBS FIVE…. (v.1-23)
This entire chapter is about Solomon warning his sons against the wiles of wicked and scheming women and the dangers of loitering aroundwhere they congregate. One can’t help wondering what age Solomon was, when he wrote these things!
It is one thing to be wise in matters concerning others and another to be wise concerning oneself or one’s family! How many times people can lay down the law (quite rightly in many cases!) for others, but bend the same rules for themselves or their children!
Let us always remember that God’s laws apply equally to ALL, and let us also front up to the wrong we are allowing in our own lives, and admit our weaknesses to others.
Solomon’s weakness for foreign women led to his ultimate downfall in direct disobedience to God’s commands. God never makes rules to spoil our fun, but to protect His people. If we feel ourselves slipping, let us do as James says…..humble ourselves to admit our weaknesses to others and ask them to pray with us in the matter. We will be doubly strengthened to withstand, and be blessed for it.
God’s rules are made to keep His own,
From falling and a-tumbling
We cannot walk this life alone,
But need God’s help to keep from stumbling.
