Proverbs 5:15-16

Never Take Love for Granted

15-16Do you know the saying, "Drink from your own rain barrel,

draw water from your own spring-fed well"?

It's true. Otherwise, you may one day come home

and find your barrel empty and your well polluted.

17-20Your spring water is for you and you only,

not to be passed around among strangers.

Bless your fresh-flowing fountain!

Enjoy the wife you married as a young man!

Lovely as an angel, beautiful as a rose—

don't ever quit taking delight in her body.

Never take her love for granted!

Why would you trade enduring intimacies for cheap thrills with a whore?

for dalliance with a promiscuous stranger?
