Proverbs in 365 Devotions

04/14

Proverbs 7:13 She seizes him and kisses him,and with bold face she says to him, 14“I had to offer sacrifices,and today I have paid my vows; 15 so now I have come out to meet you,to seek you eagerly, and I have found you.

Who loves You?

Daniel Castor

This isn't a shy Girl. This is a woman on a mission. She is very upfront with what she wants and she has no problem making it known. Everyone wants to be wanted. Who among us doesn't like to receive compliments and praise. Here in our story the man is the object of desire. Doesn't it feel great to have someone pursue you? This is a huge ego boost. But the woman that is pursuing here is not a godly woman nor is this a godly pursuit. No, this is a woman who has an adulterous heart. She is a woman who is filled with lust and lustful intent. She tries to lure him in by making him feel special, but the truth is this woman would have seduced many men. She has no prior relationship with this man but she makes it seem as if he is the only one for her and that she has been looking eagerly for him.

 

In sexual sins we always face the lie that we are most important and that we should be made much of. We have this foolish idea that sex is for our glory. This is a sinful desire in us. the quicker we figure this out the better.
