Scripture Reading

Proverbs 5 – 7

Lesson 7: The Wisdom of Purity

If we know anything about Solomon, we may question why we should consult him on purity. After all, his father had committed adultery with his mother. And later, Solomon suffered political decline because he succumbed to impurity. As he multiplied wives and concubines, his love for God cooled. Solomon left a legacy of wisdom, but he failed to heed his own counsel.[1]

Questions for LifeGroup Leaders:


Note(s) to LifeGroup Leaders:

  • Please read most of the commentary to your LifeGroup. You may summarize it if necessary, but there is nothing wrong with reading it. If you are a husband and wife team leading, perhaps take turns reading to the group. There is valuable review of the Scripture passages and application for effective discussion. Use your LifeGroup members to read Scripture.
  • The “Making It Personal” section is not designed for group discussion. These are questions that you might use to conclude before prayer. They are questions that prompt personal conviction and application. Please use them at your discretion to help your group.
