Avoid the strange woman (or worldliness)
“My son, keep my words, and lay up my commandments with thee. Keep my commandments and live; and my law as the apple of thine eye. Bind them upon thy fingers, write them upon the table of thine heart. Say unto wisdom, thou art my sister; and call understanding thy kinswoman: that they may keep thee from the strange woman, from the stranger which flatereth with her words.” Proverbs 7: 1-5.
Born again Christians are considered to be the bride of Christ and we are married to him. Any intercourse with the world and worldly things that would alienate us from him is considered by God as amounting to spiritual adultery. We are warned against the flattery of the world and its’ enticements even as the young man in the proverb is warned to remove himself from the enticement of the harlot.
Seek not pleasure and comfort from the "strange woman". Go not after other Gods, find your pleasure and comfort in almighty God alone, who is able to put the proper kind of joyfulness in our hearts. Worldliness is constantly calling to us as a harlot seeks after her prey. Be not deceived by the glitter and glamour of the works of darkness, for in the end comes only destruction from such associations.
The word of God, and the commandments of the Lord, if we keep them in our heart, is able to keep us from wandering away and falling into the trap of ungodliness. God is able to save us and to keep us from falling into the trap of the strange woman, and from the powers of darkness..
"And my soul shall be joyful in the Lord: it shall rejoice in his salvation. All my bones shall say, Lord, who is like unto thee, which deliverest the poor from him that is too strong for him, yea, the poor and the needy from him that spoileth him?" Psalm 35: 9,10.
