So I came out to meet you; I looked for you and have found you!
I have covered my bed with colored linens from Egypt.
I have perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes and cinnamon.
Come, let’s drink deeply of love till morning; Proverbs 7:15-18
For a third time Solomon takes an entire chapter to warn his sons about the seduction of the adulteress. She says to her victim that I have come looking for “you”. The reality is she is looking for anyone, but lies to the unsuspecting youth who is made to feel special by her attention.
I am so glad that my wife makes me feel special. Even today I am amazed she chose me and continues to choose me. I am grateful and more in love now than ever before.
God, I pray each of my sons will heed this warning and discover a wonderful relationship with that special woman You are choosing for them. May they avoid the seduction of the adulteress all the days of their lives and be blessed for it!
