Water from Your Own Cistern

Drink water from your own cistern, running water from your own well.
Should your springs overflow in the streets, your streams of water in the public squares?
Let them be yours alone, never to be shared with strangers.
May your fountain be blessed, and may you rejoice in the wife of your youth.
A loving doe, a graceful deer— may her breasts satisfy you always, may you ever be captivated by her love.
Why be captivated, my son, by an adulteress? Why embrace the bosom of another man’s wife?
Proverbs 5:15-20

Gentlemen, these verses were written for you and me. Take the time to read through them a few times and contemplate its meaning and the consequences if you were to follow your own or the world’s thinking on this.

Ladies, pray for the men and boys in your life. Pray that they will be faithful to the women in their lives! Pray that God would overwhelm them with love for the women in their lives.
