Be careful of the lips

Proverbs 7:21 With her much fair speech she caused him to yield, With the flattering of her lips she forced him.

This verse is obviously a proverb written by Solomon to his son or sons. It could be applied to men or women if he were talking to his daughter.

We need to be careful of the lips. She knows how to talk. She knows what to say to get the person to yield to temptation. She forced him. This can also apply to guys who know how to talk. They know just what to say to cause the young lady to fall into sin.

Be careful. If you are married, just stay away from the opposite sex. If you are single be careful to listen to only what is true and right. Be careful not to allow much speaking to break down your defenses and cause you to do something you will regret.
