Feeding Discontent

Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: Encouraging others is really important. But as women, we need to be careful not to encourage men in inappropriate ways.

The foolish woman we read about in Proverbs 7 finds a young man and invites him into an immoral relationship. She says, “I came out to meet you, diligently to seek your face, and I have found you” (v. 15). This married woman is feeding the young man’s need for admiration. She sets him up for moral failure.

Further, when a woman looks for things to admire in a man other than her own husband, it can make her feel discontented with her own marriage. It may even make her more likely to leave what she considers to be a lonely relationship.

Ladies, as you use your words to encourage others, ask God to give you wisdom and restraint in how you encourage men. Ask yourself, Is this the type of admiration that should come from his own wife?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
