DANGER LOOM – Thu, Oct 22, 2015

Proverbs 7:22-23 KJV
He goeth after her straightway, as an ox goeth to the slaughter, or as a fool to the correction of the stocks;

[23] Till a dart strike through his liver; as a bird hasteth to the snare, and knoweth not that it is for his life.

Sometimes when I think about the Samson and Delilah story I wonder how that could ever happen to a normal Ghanaian. I keep wondering what the young man was actually thinking, falling to the same trick thrice.

Delilah succeeded. Her story bears some resemblance to the woman Solomon paints in this chapter. This woman gives very concrete, irresistible reasons that could lure any man who hasn’t resolved to zip up.

“My husband has travelled and will come at an appointed time.”
Soon as you begin to consider the idea of proposal and play out the various possible scenarios in your mind, you may be on your way to trouble.

Sampson, Solomon and all others who have fallen because of a woman’s charm actually did so so you and I can learn.
Many strong men have been slain (v26) but I pray you and I may pass her test.

Have a blessed day.
