Spiritual Warfare: 'Wisdom Avoids the Bitterness of Immorality'
God's Power for Our Battles — Saturday, December 17, 2022
My son, be attentive to my wisdom [godly wisdom learned by costly experience], Incline your ear to my understanding; That you may exercise discrimination and discretion (good judgment), And your lips may reserve knowledge and answer wisely [to temptation]. For the lips of an immoral woman drip honey [like a honeycomb]. And her speech is smoother than oil; But in the end she is bitter like [the extract of] wormwood, Sharp as a two-edged sword.
— Proverbs 5:1-4 AMP
Lord, sexual temptation fills our land and pollutes our people. Deliver me from this evil, and protect me from their tempting lies of seduction. Open our eyes to the end of that dangerous road so we can see the bitterness and pain that lies at the culmination of this short-lived pleasure. Remind us all that in the end, it isn’t worth it. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
