SIH TOTT ICONHe layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous (Prov 2:7)

 Responsible Living: Do Not Commit Adultery (Part #2): Prov 6:32-35

32) [But] whoso committeth adultery with a woman lacketh understanding: he [that] doeth it destroyeth his own soul.
33) A wound and dishonour shall he get; and his reproach shall not be wiped away.
34) For jealousy [is] the rage of a man: therefore he will not spare in the day of vengeance.
35) He will not regard any ransom; neither will he rest content, though thou givest many gifts.

INTRODUCTION:

Solomon continues to share proverbs that explain the devastating results of committing adultery….

EXPOSITION:

32) [But] whoso committeth adultery with a woman lacketh understanding: he [that] doeth it destroyeth his own soul.
The person who commits adultery proves they do not know the true nature of the sin.  If they had understanding they would know the horrible effects that adultery will bring upon them.
Adultery, not only brings physical harm, but more importantly, works gradual spiritual ruin.

Marriage [is] honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.”  (Hebrews 13:4)

33) A wound and dishonour shall he get; and his reproach shall not be wiped away.
One of the dreadful results to adultery is the permanent destruction of a person’s testimony in the eyes of others.  This harm to the testimony is described as:
1. a wound – a leprous sore that continually worsens
2. dishonor – disgrace, to be taken lightly, counted as unimportant
3. reproach – to speak evil about, to strip all beauty from
It is these results that will never be totally taken away this side of heaven.  It will be a permanent mark on the character of the person committing the sin.

A Psalm of David, to bring to remembrance. O LORD, rebuke me not in thy wrath: neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure.  For thine arrows stick fast in me, and thy hand presseth me sore.  [There is] no soundness in my flesh because of thine anger; neither [is there any] rest in my bones because of my sin.  For mine iniquities are gone over mine head: as an heavy burden they are too heavy for me.  My wounds stink [and] are corrupt because of my foolishness.  I am troubled; I am bowed down greatly; I go mourning all the day long.  For my loins are filled with a loathsome [disease]: and [there is] no soundness in my flesh.  I am feeble and sore broken: I have roared by reason of the disquietness of my heart.”   (Psalms 38:1-8)

34) For jealousy [is] the rage of a man: therefore he will not spare in the day of vengeance.  35) He will not regard any ransom; neither will he rest content, though thou givest many gifts.
For those who have been sinned against, they will hold a hot anger against the sinner.  This hot anger will continue to boil and burn within until an opportunity comes to get revenge on the adulterer.  When the opportunity arises, nothing will turn back his retaliation (not a bribe, not a request for mercy etc etc)

Therefore have I also made you contemptible and base before all the people, according as ye have not kept my ways, but have been partial in the law.”   (Malachi 2:9)

SUMMARY:

In the last two devotions, Solomon has been teaching concerning the sin of adultery.  What have we learned over the past two days?

1.  With the act of adultery comes the certainty of harmful consequences.
2.  Because of the severity of the sin of adultery, and the multiplicity of the sins that are involved, NO ONE can expect to escape harmful results from this willful, selfish act of immorality.
3.  The heinousness of the sin of adultery…. It is the uncaring, willful harming of another to fulfill fleshly lusts.  It is choosing the carnal pleasure of the sinful world, over loving God and putting Him first.  It is an inexcusable sin.
4.  The person who commits adultery proves they do not know the true heinous nature of the sin.
5.  Adultery, not only brings physical harm, but more importantly, works gradual spiritual ruin.
6.  One of the dreadful results to adultery is the permanent destruction of a person’s testimony in the eyes of others.
7.  Those who have been sinned against will hold a hot anger against the sinner.  This anger will not be turned back through the use of bribes or pleas for mercy.

By God’s grace, let us all study these proverbs diligently, giving them the value that they deserve.

May the Lord bless us as we receive this sound wisdom and then “Think On These Things”.

      Thank you so much for thinking of SIH blog for the award. I am so thankful to the Lord for being allowed to be used by Him in this way. I am the first to say that it is only because of Christ that this blog began and continues to exist. Over the past few years, seeing the SIH ministry grow has once again reminded me that without Christ I truly can do nothing. He deserves all the praise and Honor for SIH and any results that may come from its ministry. Lord bless you.

    Thank you for the teaching and the warning here, about adultery. There is certainly forgiveness, but if we could learn and run from sin, it would be so much better! God bless you!
