Her house is the road to Sheol,
descending to the chambers of death.
The temptation of extra marital sexuality is great for many men and takes many forms. It intensifies as one ages and spreads it’s arms wider; however, Father God makes it perfectly clear that it leads to only one place for those who succumb and participate: straight to Hell. There are no side roads by which to escape. There is no exit when once the heart has given in to this evil. It’s ramifications are deadly. It’s ultimate destination is death. We were taught as children that the road to Hell was paved with good intentions. Here we learn from Scripture that the road to the house of an adulteress; i. e. sexual immorality, is actually the road to Hell . Good intentions truly are worthless on such a road.
Father God, protect my heart from this evil allurement and from sexual allurements. May my eyes be ever on and my desire be ever for the beautiful, pure one you have given me – the wife of my youth.
