Proverbs 6

2455_Proverbs_6_t_sm  Avoid Surety
Proverbs 6:1 "My son, if thou be surety for thy friend, [if] thou hast stricken thy hand with a stranger,"
Proverbs 6:2 "Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art taken with the words of thy mouth."
Proverbs 6:3 "Do this now, my son, and deliver thyself, when thou art come into the hand of thy friend; go, humble thyself, and make sure thy friend."
Proverbs 6:4 "Give not sleep to thine eyes, nor slumber to thine eyelids."  
Proverbs 6:5 "Deliver thyself as a roe from the hand [of the hunter], and as a bird from the hand of the fowler."
Do not take responsibility for someone elses debt! Young people don't  seem to understand that they may end up responsible for a debt they did't make or receive anything for!!
Proverbs_6-6 Do Not Be Lazy
Proverbs 6:6 "Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise:"
Proverbs 6:7 "Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler,"
Proverbs 6:8 "Provideth her meat in the summer, [and] gathereth her food in the harvest."
Proverbs 6:9 "How long wilt thou sleep, O sluggard? when wilt thou arise out of thy sleep?"
Proverbs 6:10 "[Yet] a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep:"
Proverbs 6:11 "So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth, and thy want as an armed man."
God does not like for us to be lazy. The ant throughout history has shown great industry. It is wise to follow someone or something that teaches us good habits. The ant works without another ant over him and, yet, gets his work done and done well. The ant prepares ahead and is never short of food. We can learn a lesson from the ant. 
We see here that there are some sins that God will just not tolerate. They are so terrible in His sight that He calls them an abomination.
Proverbs 6:20 "My son, keep thy father's commandment, and forsake not the law of thy mother:"
Proverbs 6:21 "Bind them continually upon thine heart, [and] tie them about thy neck."
 Our parents teach us the correct way to live. We should never grow too old to live up to the teachings of our parents.
16573   Do Not Commit Adultery
Proverbs 6:22 "When thou goest, it shall lead thee; when thou sleepest, it shall keep thee; and [when] thou awakest, it shall talk with thee."
Proverbs 6:23 "For the commandment [is] a lamp; and the law [is] light; and reproofs of instruction [are] the way of life:"
Proverbs 6:24 "To keep thee from the evil woman, from the flattery of the tongue of a strange woman."
Proverbs 6:25 "Lust not after her beauty in thine heart; neither let her take thee with her eyelids."
Parental instruction in wisdom is crucial to strengthen a person against the strong attraction of sexual sin. Sexual sin is rooted in lust.
Proverbs 6:32 "[But] whoso committeth adultery with a woman lacketh understanding: he [that] doeth it destroyeth his own soul."
Adultery is a cruel crime. Love for each other is the most precious gift a man and woman have on this earth except for the gifts of God. There is something very special about a man and his wife being one.
