(A simple series highlighting verses from each chapter of the books of Proverbs)
Chapter 7 is another focus from Solomon on instructing his son about the wayward woman. In his story, he quotes her saying the following:
My husband isn’t home; he went on a long journey. (Proverbs 7:19 CSB)
In a marriage, either spouse can go wayward. One proactive step for the couple to take to keep on the same path is to create boundaries about time-protecting their time together and their time apart.
Traveling spouse, do your marriage a big favor:
- Have a boundary talk before you book your next flight.
- If your boundaries are already in place, consider how you can help other couples do the same.
Waywardness can be avoided. Check your boundaries and stay on the same path.
