This study is part of our series of verse by verse studies of Proverbs, the 20th book in the Bible. Taught by Sim Forder, one of our pastors, at our Sunday morning service on the 19th September 2021. You can watch or listen on this web page or save the audio for later listening.
Summary of this study
These three chapters touch a few topics, but are largely devoted to one – sexual integrity. Sadly, this is a subject often avoided in churches, but we cannot avoid it if we study the Bible, or want to please God. And Solomon explains in detail, how the immoral woman (or man) can easily ensnare us – whether it be smooth talking, suggestive language, or beginning with the physical. To keep from sin, the Christian needs to prepare before temptation arrives, applying wisdom every step of the way.
- Are you involved in any sin that you need to repent of, turn from, ask God’s forgiveness for?
- What are you doing to ensure you’re not devoid of understanding?
- What are you doing to equip yourself ahead of temptation?
