Vacation Scripture #5

Written by Bill Grandi on September 7th, 2019

Jo and I are on our much-needed trip away-a trip to Alaska-courtesy of the folks at OVCF (the church I pastor). It was given to us after a tough season of ministry (losing two very close friends to cancer within a few weeks of each other) and in celebration of 45 years of my ordination.  Since I won’t be taking my computer and despise using my phone to do any type of blogging, I will be basically incognito from Tuesday, September 3 through Tuesday, September 10. I plan (notice the word Plan) to be back in the office on Wednesday and therefore resume my regular devotions.

So in anticipation of that, I thought I would share with you the Scriptures from Proverbs I underlined my last time through (August). I try to read a chapter of Proverbs for a month, every other month.  So here is the Scripture I highlighted on August 7th.

“With much seductive speech she persuades him; with her smooth talk she compels him.” (v.21)

This not only shows the subtlety of the wayward wife but on a larger scale the subtle draw of sin.

Now it is your time to think about it.

    I definitely think the focus is the larger scale here…

    The flesh is indeed weak… I agree; it’s more than just a wayward woman. This verse is speaking to the frailty of this flesh.
