Now listen to this. Proverbs. Listen to
this. Proverbs 5. Talking to, where it says my son, is talking to, for the lips of an
adulteress, and you can read adulterer the same way, drips honey, meaning smooth.
Smoother than oil is her speech. But in the end she’s as bitter as wormwood.
Sharp as a two-edged sword her feet go down to death. Her steps take hold of
Sheol, like Hell. She doesn’t ponder the path of life. Her ways are unstable. She doesn’t know it. Now then my son, listen to me. And do not depart from the words
of my mouth. Keep your way far from her. Don’t go near
the door of her house or you will give your strength to others and your years
to the cruel one. And strangers will be filled with your strength and your
hard-earned goods will go to the house of an alien. And you will groan at the
end of your life. What’s that? It’s an example of delighting in what is not of
God. Adultery. And what’s it saying? It says, well at the beginning it seems sweet. But because it’s wrong it’s gonna end up working against you, harming you. The more
you delight in it, the more it will destroy your life. Now this is written
thousands of years ago. And I’ve seen it happen today in the 21st century. I’ve
seen it in people’s lives. Same thing happens. It is just as true now. One form
or the other, it leads to destruction of lives. In one form the other that’s what
happens with adultery. It says why would you give yourself to that? Because what’s
gonna happen is you’re gonna … it’s gonna take away your life. It’s gonna
take away your family. It’s gonna take away your life. But then it gives the
antidote. Now listen. Drink water from your own
cistern, your own well. And fresh water from your own well. Why should your
springs, your life be dispersed … Why should your streams of water flow in the
streets. Your life, your life. Let them be yours alone, and rejoice in
the wife of your youth. As a loving hind and a graceful doe let her breasts
satisfy you at all times. Be exhilarated always with her love.
It doesn’t say, just don’t do wrong. It doesn’t say, just don’t do that sin. It
doesn’t say that. It says, it doesn’t just even say be
faithful in your marriage. Although of course that’s part of it. It says rejoice
in the wife of your youth. That’s the key! Rejoice in the good. Rejoice in what God
gave you. Rejoice in what you have. Rejoice in what is legitimately yours.
Rejoice in what is a blessing from God. Drink waters from your own cistern. To
