Daily Verse: “With much seductive speech she persuades him;  with her smooth talk she compels him.” Prov. 7:21

People hide ulterior motives behind seductive speech, like the woman in today’s verse.  Reading the entire passage, the adulteress woman’s intentions become clear, her calculated words leading an innocent person astray.

Exploiting the innocence in people happens every day by all kinds of people.  Lying to achieve goals means more to some than living a life filled with integrity.

Fast talkers, like today’s heroine, know how to evoke strong emotions, not giving people time to think about their actions, instead following blindly along.

‘Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.’ 1 Peter 5:8

Beware of those who would take advantage of your weaknesses.  Understand, the spiritual battle never ceases, always trying to derail our best intentions.

Victory comes with Jesus.  Lean into Christ’s teachings to help avoid the pitfall of seductive words.

Lord, forgive us for going astray because of seductive speech.  Illuminate truth for us in all things, and help us avoid the pitfalls of fast talkers.  Give us victory over the enemy’s attacks.  IJNIP. Amen
