Number 18: Give Me Your Heart

Friday, April 5, 2013

My son, give me your heart and let your eyes keep to my ways, for a prostitute is a deep pit and a wayward wife is a narrow well. Like a bandit she lies in wait, and multiplies the unfaithful among men. Proverbs 23:26-28

I like to think that this saying isn't just about loose women. I think it is a command for all of us to keep our heart and our eyes on God; to avoid temptations that get us totally off track. The world is full of them. Be alert.

{Saying Number 18 is part of a series I'm featuring on Fridays. It comes straight from the Bible, and you can read more here: 30 Sayings of the Wise}

  1. I agree that God's Word is intended for us each and all no matter what the gender is in the actual verse. Keeping our eyes on Jesus is what we are to be doing every moment. Thanks for this encouragement.
