PROVERBS 2:16-22

16Wisdom will save you also from the adulterous woman,from the wayward woman with her seductive words,17who has left the partner of her youth and ignored the covenant she made before God.18Surely her house leads down to death and her paths to the spirits of the dead.19None who go to her turn or attain the paths of life.20Thus you will walk in the ways of the good and keep to the paths of the righteous. 21For the upright will live in the land,and the blameless will remain in it;22but the wicked will be cut off from the land, and the unfaithful will be torn from it.

2: 16-17   Two of the most difficult sins to resist are pride and sexual immorality. Both are seductive. Pride whispers, You deserve it; sexual desire demands, You need it. In combination, their appeal is deadly. Pride appeals to the empty head; sexual enticement to the empty heart. By looking to God, we can fill our heads with his wisdom and our hearts with his love. Ask God daily to fill you with his wisdom and love so that there will be little room inside you for these temptations to take root and grow. Don’t be fooled— remember what God says about who you are and what you were meant to be.
