The adulteress as described in Proverbs 5 is very attractive and desirable but in the end would lead to the wrong path in life. The passage commanded to stay away from the adulteress because of personal and public destruction including the loss of health, wealth, honor, and dignity.
God’s plan for sex and love is to rejoice in the wife of our youth and always be enraptured with her love (v. 18). The passage points out the importance of marriage and advises to put all attention on the one He has joined you with in marriage.
The blessings of a traditional married life as one man and one woman was designed and ordained by God to meet each spouse’s needs. Also designed for the birth and the rearing of children.
Many suggest the disintegration of a culture and the disintegration of the family begins when the traditional meaning of marriage is lost. When a society’s basic family unit that has worked most effectively over the years is no longer held in high regard.
This day with You God, we pray for stronger relationships. Being sensitive to the needs of our spouse. Realizing that Your plan Lord is for us to use good common sense by putting our attention on the one You have joined with us in marriage. As we go throughout this day, we pray for building great memories with the ones we love. Amen
