Wisdom and Marriage

Posted by Brian Bailey on

In Proverbs Chapter 5, we find Solomon repeating some of the same words of Chapter 2 in regard to the pursuit of wisdom. Here in Chapter 5, he once again lays out stern warning for us relating to adultery, followed by an exhortation to focus on the spouse of our marriage. Though written to a...
