Discussion for Proverbs 6:24

  • Timothy Wayne George for verse 24
    Wisdom will keep thee away from the evil woman, and the flattery of the wayward wife's tongue. Therefore seek wisdom, for she will make your pathway bright. If any man lacks wisdom, let him ask of God who gives to all men freely. He must ask in faith, without doubting, because who ever doubts is a double minded man. The adulterous will seek after the precious life, so keep thy heart with all diligence, for out of it are the issues of life.
