(Pro 7:8 KJV) Passing through the street near her corner; and he went the way to her house,
I hope you are not filled with sympathy for this young man who seems to be trapped by a loose woman. Don’t be. He seems to have a goal and that goal is this babe who is waiting for him. Notice that he is heading for her neighborhood. He knows where he is headed and knows who will be waiting for him. I imagine he felt he could deny it if he met the wrong person but it was all laid out in advance.
So? How many times have I talked myself into believing that I am being caught by the unexpected? Sometimes it is true. On reflection I can look back and see how I could have done better, no, how I should have done better. It is hard to live without playing games with ourselves.
