• The Trap of Adultery Devotional

    Proverbs 5:1–14

    Adultery is not the unforgivable sin. Those who commit it will be forgiven by God if they repent. Nevertheless, adultery always has destructive consequences. It can lead to divorce. It can bring an end to a person’s good name. It can lead children to lose respect for a parent who has committed adultery. It can lead to the loss of a job. That adultery can lead to these consequences must be remembered. Though there is hope in forgiveness, adultery brings destruction. View Resource

  • Standing Firm Against Adultery Devotional

    Proverbs 5:15–20

    Matthew Henry comments, “Let him that is married take delight in his wife, and let him be very fond of her, not only because she is the wife that he himself has chosen and he ought to be pleased with his own choice, but because she is the wife that God in his providence appointed for him and he ought much more to be pleased with the divine appointment, pleased with her because she is his own.” God gave us our spouses; let us rejoice in them.

  • Our Ways Before the Lord Devotional

    Proverbs 5:21

    The good that we do will not save us; only the perfect righteousness of Christ can do that. However, the Lord is still pleased to reward His people for what they do in serving Jesus. Since God ponders our paths, we know that He sees all of the good that we do in Jesus’ name, so even if it is not recognized now, it will be recognized on the last day. We can be content to let much of our service remain secret because we know the One who sees in secret will reward us (Matt. 6:4). View Resource

  • The Cords of Sin Devotional

    Proverbs 5:22–23

    Romans 2:5 indicates that the impenitent are storing up wrath for themselves, wrath that they will feel in its most intense form on that final day when God judges the living and the dead. Remembering this truth will help us to be patient as we see wicked people succeed and righteous people fail. Moreover, it will encourage us to share the gospel with those around us, knowing that if our loved ones do not turn to Christ, they will suffer eternal death. View Resource
