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.

Not So Innocent

(Pro 7:13 KJV) So she caught him, and kissed him, and with an impudent face said unto him,

I am not a hugger.  I’m not and I feel no guilt for that.  I can hug if I run into a hugger but I keep it as short as possible.  I make exceptions for family members.  Hugs were part of our morning routine when I had morning duty with the toddler.  Sometimes that game was for me to chase her until she was willing to give up.  Great times.  But I am not a hugger.

I am not a hugger because of what this verse is illustrating.  Just as few people get addicted to marijuana without smoking a cigarette, no one becomes an alcoholic without taking a drink and you don’t get fat by not eating, few people get caught up in sexual sin without some “innocent” contact.

So?  Be a prude.  There is nothing to lose by doing so and an eternity to lose if you get caught us in sexual sin.
