September 7 by Doug

It's 9-7, so I started off in chapter 9. Oops. Fox News reported on a study that showed men can't focus when they're around beautiful women, and I'm at home instead of the office, so I'm around my beautiful wife. So, can't focus.

Proverbs 9:2(NIV) →Wisdom is prepared for your coming. Growing in wisdom is not facing something that is unprepared!

Proverbs 7:1(NIV) →This is good advice. While there are some parts of knowledge that can be kept under file or on the shelf, there is wisdom that needs to be retained in our hearts and minds. It's not necessary to memorize the whole Bible, but some of it needs to be burned in our minds.

Proverbs 7:3(NIV) →Bind them on your fingers---let it be apparent not only to yourself, but obvious to the world that you are pursuing wisdom.

Proverbs 7:10(NIV) →“Dressed like a prostitute” men, does your wife own clothes that allow her to dress like a prostitute? Why? To please you? This woman is a wife, yet her husband has enabled her towards unfaithfulness. Don't setup a life that encourages your wife to be unfaithful.

Proverbs 7:26(NIV) →How many have been brought low by adultery? How many men falter over sexuality? Just yesterday Fox News was discussing a study, an actual funded scientific study, that showed that men have trouble focusing around beautiful women. Shocking, right? It's right here!!! Proverbs warns us of the same trouble.
