How to be an Idiot: Entertain Adultery

How to be an Idiot

Solomon wrote Proverbs having received wise counsel from his father, David. David wanted his son to learn from his mistakes and this lesson provides four steps to fight lust and the temptation of adultry: (1) Give your heart to the Lord; (2) guard your heart; (3) look down the road to where this will lead; and (4) love your wife by keeping your relationship pure and right.

About 'How to be an Idiot'

The ancient Greeks had a word for it - "idios" - someone consumed with his own interests and opinions. It's the origin of the English word "idiot," someone we regard today as lacking wisdom or good judgment. And, interestingly enough, the Bible has a lot to say about idiots, either painting vivid portraits of individuals relying on their own reasoning or laying out specific warnings about the danger of pursuing our own instincts and desires when they run contrary to Gods Word. In this 12-part series Todd Wagner helps us recognize our innate tendencies to reject wisdom and provides practical insight for living blessed, purposeful lives.
