2/5/2010 - The Seductive Power of Flattery Proverbs 7:21
The Seductive Power of Flattery
SCRIPTURE: Prov. 7:21 So she seduced him with her pretty speech and enticed him with her flattery.
Men, knowing this, we must guard are hearts against the seductress that would play on this desire and pull us into a relationship that will destroy us. We have to remember that it is healthy to have to face our weaknesses. It is a good thing to be pressed to continue to grow and change. As it says elsewhere in Proverbs; "as iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend."
We may not like the fact that our wives point out our flaws, but they are being true friends when they do and we are giving into our immature impulses when we opt for someone who can't see them or is unwilling to point them out. The end of that road is utter destruction.
