An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

Life Spice

(Pro 5:15 KJV) Drink waters out of thine own cistern, and running waters out of thine own well.

Have you heard it said that “variety is the spice of life”?  That may apply to your diet and your wardrobe but it does not apply to your sex life.  Sex is like chewing gum.  It is not to be shared cavalierly.  It is so special that it is to be reserved for that one special person.  I know that goes against every TV program and college course on diversity.  Chalk it down to following the standards of God rather than Google.

Have you ever had something so special that you were saving it to share with just one special person?  It might be a mountain view you have discovered.  It might be a recipe that is hard to duplicate.  It might be a poem from your heart.  Have you ever shared something like that and the other person looks at you blankly and says, “Yeah.  So?”  I think of stories of people who have had a rare and expensive bottle of wine and a family member with no understanding of fine wine serves it for dinner some night.  Sex is like that.  It is to be reserved for marriage and that special one God has for you.

So?  Keep in mind that God’s standards are a reflection on His holiness and when applied make our lives better.
