THE SIN OF LUST

PROVERBS 6:25-29

25Do not lust in your heart after her beauty or let her captivate you with her eyes.26For a prostitute can be had for a loaf of bread,but another man’s wife preys on your very life.27Can a man scoop fire into his lap without his clothes being burned?28Can a man walk on hot coals without his feet being scorched?29So is he who sleeps with another man’s wife; no one who touches her will go unpunished.


6: 25-35   Some people argue that breaking God’s prohibition against sexual sin is all right if nobody gets hurt. In truth, somebody always gets hurt. In the case of adultery, spouses are devastated and children are scarred. Even if the partners themselves escape disease and unintended pregnancy, they may lose their ability to feel true sexual desire, to trust, and to be entirely open with another person. Relationships with children are weakened. The betrayed spouse loses self-worth. God’s laws are not arbitrary. They do not forbid sexual pleasure within marriage; rather, they warn us against destroying ourselves through unwise actions or running ahead of God’s timetable.


6: 25   Lust is an unnatural, immoral, or greedy desire for sex. Regard lust as a warning sign of danger ahead. When you notice that you are sexually attracted to a person or preoccupied with fantasies of him or her, your desires may quickly degenerate into lust. Ask God to help you have appropriate desires before lustful ones draw you into sin.

Tyndale. NIV Life Application Study Bible.
