24-27 So, friends, listen to me,

    take these words of mine most seriously.

Don’t fool around with a woman like that;

    don’t even stroll through her neighborhood.

Countless victims come under her spell;

    she’s the death of many a poor man.

She runs a halfway house to hell,

    fits you out with a shroud and a coffin.

-Proverbs 7:24-27 The Message

24 And now, O sons, listen to me,

    and be attentive to the words of my mouth.

25 Let not your heart turn aside to her ways;

    do not stray into her paths,

26 for many a victim has she laid low,

    and all her slain are a mighty throng.

27 Her house is the way to Sheol,

    going down to the chambers of death.

Verses 25-27 studies: There are steps to avoid sexual sin. First, guard your mind; don’t read books, watch movies, or look at pictures that encourage these fantasies. Second, keep away from people or settings that will tempt you. And third, think and focus on the future, not the moment. Today’s thrill may lead to tomorrow’s ruin.

My name is Darren. I started sharing devotions in June 2019. As one of the ministry leaders at my church. One reason why I started devotions is because of the lack of inspiration and motivation in our lives. It is hard to be encouraged with a lot of negativity going around. I invite you to be encouraged by the word of God. Our struggles can be personal, at the workplace, and the lack of community in our lives. When we go through hard times, we need the word of God. Please read them and be encouraged. I also started a podcast talking about racism and discrimination. Please take a moment to check that out as well. Afternoon Coffee Break with Darren Watts.
