My son, keep my words and treasure up my commandments with you; keep my commandments and live; keep my teaching as the apple of your eye; bind them on your fingers; write them on the tablet of your heart. (Proverbs 7:1-3, ESV) In Proverbs 5-7, there is a central and important theme that Solomon urges his son to understand. In fact, he tells his son the failure to grasp these truths are a matter of life and death. What could be that important? His understanding of and place of sex in his life. Generally the modern church seems to have taken one of two approaches to this subject. Either with red faces, we have avoided the subject at all costs pointing to politeness or piety. Or we have acted like junior high school boys, snickering in the corner in having discovered a forbidden curiosity. This week we want to look at these chapters and deal with sexuality in the Proverbs clearly, honestly, and most importantly biblically. My goal with this sermon is to be frank, but not vulgar, because this subject is vital in our day to think rightly about. (For those with children, I will leave it to your discretion for your family to look at the following website which has been a help and encouragement in my preparation): I believe that in these texts, God has work to do in our lives, hearts, relationships, and marriages. I encourage you to take some time over the next few days to slowly read Proverbs 5-7.
