New King James Version | NKJV

Proverbs 5:1-2

My son, pay attention to my wisdom;
Lend your ear to my understanding,
That you may preserve discretion,
And your lips may keep knowledge.

Reflective Thinking

We are to receive this as a direct instruction from our Father. One thing I’ve noticed in my life is when it’s time to teach a child something very important and potentially dangerous if not understood, the first thing I do is to ensure that they are focused. When I say focused I mean really focused that they not only hear me, but they fully comprehend the severity of what I’m communicating to them. This is exactly what’s happening here. The subject God, our Father, is helping us focus and fully understand is about adultery and staying faithful. God is being direct about how important this is to Him and how important it needs to be for us. He wants us to focus and fully understand the consequences of not following His instruction here.

Action Idea

Receive peace. Still your body and your mind. Now, pay attention to this wisdom. Open your heart to God’s still small voice and get understanding.
