Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: In recent years we’ve heard about a number of highly-publicized scandals. One disturbing result, I think, is that talk of private matters has been splashed throughout the news media. Language that was once considered inappropriate outside the bedroom has now become part of everyday vocabulary.
In Proverbs 7 we read the story of a married woman who is also seductive; she’s trying to ensnare a young man. She begins talking about something that should be just between her and her husband.
Woman: “I have spread my bed with tapestry, colored coverings of Egyptian linen” (v. 16).
Nancy: There are certain topics that should stay in the bedroom between a husband and wife.
Woman: “I have perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon” (v. 17).
Nancy: Do you ever find yourself talking with friends about things that should stay between you and your husband? Ask God to give you discretion as you talk with others.
With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
