Introduction
Our text today provides us with a picture of what parenting is all about.
Part of the parent’s role is to guide and teach their children to go in the way they should go so that when they grow up they will apply it in their lives.
Train up a child [a]in the way he should go,
Even when he is old he will not depart from it.
Prov
Yes parenting involves talking to your children.
Get them use to hearing from you verbally so that when they grow up they won’t refer to it as awkward.
You teach your children before the idea get’s into their mind.
Better to teach to them so they will not make a mistake instead of teaching them after they make a mistake.
Teaching should be proactive and not a response to explain a wrong act committed.
In today’s text, Solomon is talking to his son about the subject of sexual immorality.
I believed this is part of sex education that should be taking place in the home.
When you talk about sexual immorality you also need to discuss sexual purity.
The topic surrounding sex as a family discussion is one of the most avoided or absent in the home.
Sexual immorality is all over and families are exposed to in different ways, shape and form.
That’s why we should be talking about it.
Today we will learn the danger of immorality.
What kind of wisdom is Solomon teaching his son?
1. Do not commit adultery.
2. Avoid immoral ruin and regret.
3. Be faithful to your spouse.
1. Do not commit adultery.
Ex 20:15
He is taught to “give attention” to his dad’s wisdom
To Incline his ears to his Dad’s understanding
He is taught to “LISTEN” - hear and obey, follow.
Why should he listen?
He is speaking from experience,
Solomon’s association with this topic:
Solomon was the third and last king of the united kingdom of Israel, following King Saul and King David.
He was the son of David and Bathsheba, the former wife of Uriah the Hittite whom David had killed to hide his adultery with Bathsheba while her husband was on the battle front.
Solomon wrote the Song of Solomon, the book of Ecclesiastes, and much of the book of Proverbs.
Solomon had 700 wives and 300 concubines, many of them foreigners who led him into public idolatry in his old age, greatly angering God ().

A description of the adulteress:
He lips (v.3)
Her lips are sweet & her speech smooth
Prov. 5
