Proverbs 5:3

“For the lips of a forbidden woman drip honey,

    and her speech is smoother than oil,

but in the end she is bitter as wormwood,

    sharp as a two-edged sword.”

Proverbs 5:3 ESV

Because everything is not as it appears, wisdom is a necessity. This proverb is an example of the exceedingly deceptive nature of sin. But, wisdom can help us recognize the deception; for wisdom provides discernment and understanding.

Are you preparing for the deceptions that will come your way daily by increasing your wisdom? Or, are you simply playing things as they come? The former is a plan that leads to life; the latter leads to death.
