Proverbs in 365 Devotions
Proverbs 5:15 Drink water from your own cistern, flowing water from your own well.
Pour your Life into One Woman
as Christ loves the Church
Should every man be permitted to take what is not his? No of course not; we are born knowing this truth. We know we can not do as we please and take things that belong to others. When a child rips something away from another child war is about to break out! How much more when a man takes another mans wife. This chapter is a warning against adultery.
In this chapter there are two women mentioned.
1 - The forbidden women.
2 - Your wife.
The forbidden Woman is any woman that is not your wife. They are off limits to you. Your wife is whom you should enjoy and that is the relationship you should poor into and get satisfaction from. Love your wife as Christ loves the Church. There is not a second option. There is only one to love!
