Daily Bible Reading for Thursday, February 22nd:

Proverbs 7:21-23 – Giving In to Temptation

21 By her clever words she made him give in;
by her pleasing words she led him into doing wrong.
22 All at once he followed her,
like an ox led to the butcher,
like a deer caught in a trap
23 and shot through the liver with an arrow.
Like a bird caught in a trap,
he didn’t know what he did would kill him.
 – Proverbs 7:21-23 NCV

Proverbs 7 is again a warning to avoid the adulteress. The spiritual desolation this sin leaves is described in these verses.
