A three-part formula...

Listen to today's passage 

There is a formula in Proverbs 7 that most every person needs to hear. Verses 2 and 3 give us three things to do: Guard my teachings, Bind them on your fingers, and Write them on your heart. The promise of the formula is that doing these things will “keep you from the adulteress.” We all know a lot of people that have fallen to adultery sometime in their lifetime. The path of destruction left by this sin is disastrous.

Because God knew the consequences would be disastrous, He wanted us to have a plan to “keep us from the adulteress.” (Verse 5) Make sure you follow God’s wisdom in this area.
