This is a stern warning to avoid sexual immorality. Don’t just see this as a narrow definition of having an affair with a married woman. Take a moment and lump all lust, pornography, sexual impurity, adultery, and similar actions into these verses. Don’t go there! Don’t be enticed by it! Don’t go down those paths because there is nothing but death on that road!
I’ve walked that path before and reaped the destruction in my life because of it. If you are on that path now, turn around! Run away! “Flee also youthful lusts” as it says in 2 Tim. 2:2. It’s never too late to change your path. God has forgiven you in Christ and He can restore what the enemy has taken. I can attest to God’s amazing redemption in my life.
It is essential to call out for God’s wisdom in order to avoid these temptations. He is able to provide a way of escape but you have to be willing to follow Him and the promptings of the Holy Spirit. The verses here in Proverbs 2 can be summarized as “Follow the Leader”. Our Leader will keep us on the paths of righteousness. He knows the way!
