Hold Tight to Wisdom and Don’t Reach for Foolishness

Proverbs 7:10-20  https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Proverbs%207&version=ESV 

            The prior verses urged the importance of holding to wisdom.  These verses warn of the temptress who lures away the foolish.  The picture of the prostitute is literal, but the temptation may come in many forms and always promises reward and pleasure to those who forsake wisdom.   

            We are daily tempted to follow the world in caring for the temples of our bodies.  We forsake the wisdom of how God designed our bodies, expecting to be able to enjoy quick pleasures of unhealth lifestyles while avoiding the long term consequences.  The world ignores the consequences of foolish health choices.  Don’t listen to them.  Know that every choice for health you make will be worth it in the long run.
