Spiritual Food for Thought for the Weekend
Whose Idea was Sex?
Proverbs 7:21-23, 27
“With persuasive words she led him astray; she seduced him with her smooth talk. All at once he followed her like an ox going to the slaughter, like a deer stepping into a noose till an arrow pierces his liver, like a bird darting into a snare, little knowing it will cost him his life. Her house is a highway to the grave, leading down to the chambers of death.”
Sex was God’s idea. He intended it as a gift to be used inside marriage. It was to be a beautiful act of love shared between husband and wife. But the enemy has hijacked this gift of sex and uses it to tempt us. It is one of the biggest battles of our times. Please read this entire chapter and gain wisdom in this area!
Prayer: Jesus I want to keep my eyes on you. Jesus, fill me with your love so my heart will not have room for lust. Amen.
