“Keep your way far from her, and do not go near the door of her house;”
Find alternatives. When I plan and evaluate ‘my way’, which includes my calendar and everything else; I keep so far away that I do not even hear ‘her voice’.
‘Her voice’ in 2023 includes
– phone calls
– social media
– anything online
‘For the lips of a forbidden woman drip honey, and her speech is smoother than oil’
In addition to hearing her voice via that ever so dangerous ‘smart’ phone that I continually carry, there are some simple safeguards for meeting with women….
⁃ meet in public
⁃ meet in groups
⁃ meet in daytime
If an unexpected danger does appear, there is a singular response:
I Corinthians 6:18
‘Flee sexual immorality.’
Turn and run – just turn and run.
Heavenly Father, I recognize the danger and ask for your grace to be alert. Help me to be proactive as I plan my way. In Jesus Name, Amen.
