6 At the window of my house
I looked down through the lattice.
7 I saw among the simple,
I noticed among the young men,
a youth who had no sense.
8 He was going down the street near her corner,
walking along in the direction of her house
9 at twilight, as the day was fading,
as the dark of night set in.
10 Then out came a woman to meet him,
dressed like a prostitute and with crafty intent.
In the Bible, being unfaithful to God is often compared with adultery, and we know how dangerous and damaging adultery can be. Today’s passage from Proverbs captures this with the description of a foolish young man being ambushed by it. Take care to look out for the wily ways we are tempted away from our God and his will – and take care to not jeopardise your other relationships too.
Thank you Father for your faithfulness to us, help us to live a faithful life in response.
