- Verse 2 is a somewhat startling reminder that you have to guard discretion/wisdom. It is a commodity that could be lost if we are not careful. In what ways are we protecting this?
- The Bible often gives not-so-subtle reminders that the initial promises made by sin are really lies. The promises do not deliver, the heartache and ruin is the result that is often hidden.
- Verse 11-14 paint a pretty vivid of remorse/regret being verbalized. What a public spectacle! It would be hard to give a clearer picture of what that might look like than these verses do. As I read the verses it seems like these are the kinds of things that could result in many sleepless nights.
- This chapter also reminds me that part of the safeguard against immorality is an intimate marriage that is more than a mere 'business arrangement.' Few marriages begin that way, far too many devolve into that.
