Day 7 (PG)

It was a problem then…. it is a problem now. Chapter 5 covered it, Chapter 6 touches on it (at the end) and now Chapter 7 is back to the instruction…

Listen to wisdom and stay away from the adulteress.

But can we just pause a moment here and go at it from the angle of the woman?

My question…

Why does this woman pursue the guy? The text says “she is boisterous and rebellious and her feet do not remain at home” (7:11) Further more it says she has taken the time to prepare the house for another man while her husband is out of town (7:19-20)

That’s messed up… She’s messed up. It is a dirty, raunchy, disgusting life she is living. We have heard of “dirty old men”, but there are just as many “dirty old women.”

Just look around… you do not have to look very far. A lot of women do not dress modestly. “Even on tooth past commercials” (See – Nate McCartney Day 5 comment) And if its pointed out they get really upset. And most men don’t make a big deal out of it because really…

they like it…

but need to guard themselves a bit better…

and stay focused on the wife of their youth.

Guys… there are a lot of women out there, that dress provocatively whose goal is to take you out. (7:22-23). They look nice, they look innocent, they seem like they mean you no harm but in a moment of weakness they will destroy you.

Its never “just a meal”, “just a hug”, “just a person that understands you better than your wife” or ‘just what she chose to wear” (ladies – even in choosing what to wear “meaning no harm causes harm” modesty is always the best policy)

So guys… Guard yourself, pay attention! Do not let your heart turn aside to her ways for her ways are the ways of death. (7:26-27)
