Today we start looking at the chapters individually, digging a little deeper into them. We're starting with chapter 5 - a chapter about the folly of immorality and its consequences. Our society today could learn so much from this.
Read chapter 5 and answer the folowing questions -
• Summarize the teaching of verses 1-2 in your own words. Why do you think the author mentioned "lips" in verse 2? What is the relationship between wisdom and what a person says?
• What is the basic point of verses 3-6? What consequences of involvement with a "loose woman" does the text describe? Have you ever seen such consequences in the life of someone you knew?
• Does verse 21 sound a positive, joyful note for you or a frightening message of judgment? Why? What are the advantages and disadvantages of having the eyes of the Lord on your life?
I hope you get time in God's Word today to realise how amazing He is and how much He can actually save us from - pain, destruction, shame, consequences.... Praise God for His wonderful love and words of wisdom!
Keep shining xx
