“She is loud and stubborn; her feet abide not in her house:”
Do you know this kind of person?
Solomon is telling us about that wayward woman, the adulteress. But do you know someone like this?
This is the person who seems to struggle with speaking with an “inside voice” and has to be right … even when they know they are wrong.
This is the person who starts the party … and often ruins it.
This is the person who has hundreds and even thousands of friends … and no one who is close to them.
This is the person who has been in numerous relationships … and either something is wrong with the other person or they are “friends with benefits” … or just “good friends”.
Is this person you?
We have all been this person, in one way or another.
No, we have not all been loud, but we have all been stubborn in some way.
No, we have not all been the partier with numerous “friends” and hook-ups.
We all, however, have yelled at God and known we were justified in our argument.
We all have wandered from God by following our own desires in one way or another.
We all have cheated on God by pursuing something or someone we loved more in one way or another.
Thankfully, God pursues us and quietly waits for us.
Thankfully, He came after us in Jesus Christ.
Lord Jesus, thank You for coming after us and saving us. Help us to pursue You in every moment. Give us the wisdom and guidance to avoid those which can lead us astray, and give us the strength to overcome temptation when we walk into it once again.

I HAVE NEVER KNOWN ANYONE LIKE THAT!
Humor is a terrible thing to waste… I know.

It is a good thing you try to not waste it.
So tell me about your “friend” you do not know …

He’s got a lot of hair and never plays with puppets…and he’s ugly…and probably a liberal…and eats cottage cheese…
But he’s definitely NOT me…just in case you were suggesting.

No, no. No suggestions … JUST FLAT OUT ACCUSATIONS!
