Warning Them About Harlots

What type of women should young men look for when pursuing a wife? The first few chapters of Proverbs are full of exhortations to young men of what to avoid in women. What characteristics do these women that they are to avoid look like? It is clearly stated in a few verses: loud, stubborn, promiscuous, aggressive and immodest. It sounds like many women today, unfortunately.

"And, behold, there met him a woman with the attire of a harlot, and cunning of heart. She is loud and stubborn; her feet abide not in her house" {Proverbs 7:10,11}. Women today dress like harlots. They are immodest, showing as much skin as possible and care less about being a stumbling block to men. Even many Christian women dress according to the world's standards instead of God's Standards

"She is loud and stubborn." This is completely opposite of being meek and quiet as the Lord commands of women's behavior who profess Jesus as their Lord. Young women are taught to voice their opinions, not to listen to authority, do things their own way, become independent, dress the way they want, only please them self, do what feels good, make their own money, live under no one's rules, and NEVER submit to your husband. They don't want anyone telling them what to do just as Eve didn't want God to tell her what to do. Women want to be accountable to no one and go their own way.

They are usually very aggressive; "She leads him and forces him along" {Proverbs 7:21}. They have no problem calling boys up and asking them out. They send them naked pictures of themselves and go to their homes, seeking them out.

These women give sex freely and often. They give them any kind of sex they want thinking that this will cause the young men to value them.  "Come, let us take our fill of love until the morning: let us solace ourselves with loves...Her house is the way to hell, going down to the chambers of death" {Proverbs 7:18,27}

Mothers, please, protect your sons from the harlots around them. Be a godly wife and mother as an example to them of what they ought to look for in a wife. Read to them Proverbs 31, I Peter 3 and Titus 2 for the definition of the characteristics they should desire in a wife. Don't put them in public high schools and universities where the girls will pursue them and want to do all types of vile things sexually for them and where they will be exposed to all types of porn.

Here is God's prescription for young men ~

"How can a young man keep his way pure
By keeping it according to Your word...
Your word I have treasured in my heart,
 That I may not sin against You."
Psalm 119:9,11
