But the married man is anxious about worldly matters—how he may please his wife—

And he is drawn in diverging directions [his interests are divided and he is distracted from his devotion to God].

VIII. MAIN BODY:

Proverbs 23:27 (Amplified Bible)

For a harlot is a deep ditch, and a loose woman is a narrow pit.

Proverbs 23:27 (King James Version)

For a whore is a deep ditch; and a strange woman is a narrow pit.

A. A harlot is a deep ditch

"For a harlot is a deep ditch,"

Proverbs 22:14 (Amplified Bible)

The mouth of a loose woman is a deep pit [for ensnaring wild animals]; he with whom the Lord is indignant and who is abhorrent to Him will fall into it.

A deep ditch is something a wise man avoids because he will be stuck on it. That's how a harlot and a loose woman should be treated.

ILLUSTRATION: Several years ago, we have crusades inside beer gardens where I preached GOD's WORDS, the men's ministry can't believed what I've done, even I can't believed it. No one will go with me, so I took my wife and son, and dressed in full battle gear with jumper covering even my arms and wore a hat (which I don't usually do) then preach GOD's WORDS, now we can't even pinpoint the places where all these beer gardens (club of the harlots) have been standing before, they were all wiped out like a lice wiped out by a narrow comb. HALLELUJAH! It was a ministry indeed, all these club houses closed down because GOD's fear was planted on their sexual workers and the hospitality girls went on all home to their provinces to get decent jobs instead of selling their own bodies for money. I was never able to document it with pictures because they don't want their pictures taken for obvious reasons. It was a glory, praise and worship offering all unto JESUS, because He did it, He did all the preaching and I did all the receiving and listening.
