Let’s take our problems to the Lord.

Proverbs 5:1-14
Being married: There are many temptations – the ‘loose woman’ (3-6). Be positive: Through ‘mutual love and respect’, let’s build ‘strong and happy’ marriages, in which ‘the marriage bond is honoured’. Singles: Don’t spoil everything by getting entangled with those who are ‘loose’ in their commitment to believing in and living for Jesus Christ! Bringing up children: There are many problems – the natural reaction of the child (11-12). Our children are to be brought up ‘in the nurture and admonition of the Lord’ (Ephesians 6:4). We need the tenderness – ‘I don’t condemn you’ – and firmness – ‘don’t sin’ – of Christ (John 8:11). Children: The natural reaction – ‘I hate discipline. I will not listen’ – is the sinful reaction. Pray for God’s help – to ‘obey your parents in the Lord’ (Ephesians 6:1-3).
