Unfortunately, in our national scandal of General Petraeus, we have a teachable moment for our young men.
Solomon specifically warned his sons about this situation and the consequences:
Now, then, my sons, listen to me; pay attention to what I say.
Do not let your heart turn to her ways or stray into her paths.
Many are the victims she has brought down; her slain are a mighty throng.
Her house is a highway to the grave, leading down to the chambers of death.
Time to lead our young men in prayer for themselves, for ourselves, for our church leaders, and for our nation’s leaders. (And for General Petraeus’ family). And run the other way.
By the grace of God, let us pray that we will stay true to the end.
