Proverbs 7 – As we saw last time, life’s full of pitfalls. But what if we want to fall in? Warnings are a must. Proverbs 7 gives us three: seek the protection of God’s Word, don’t destroy your life, see the carnage and be on your guard.
Proverbs 5-6 – Few think clearly in a moment of temptation. Few stop and think well. Instead we rationalise. We need wisdom! Proverbs 5-6 describe for us 4 common pitfalls: adultery, debt, laziness and troublemaking.
Proverbs 2-3 – If something sounds too good to be true… We all know how that statement ends (most of the time). Proverbs offers long life, honour, pleasant existence, peace and eternal life. Where does one find this sort of thing? Fear the Lord.
