Proverbs 5 Outlines

Regrets of a Sensual Son

Introduction: In Proverbs 5 we see what the sensual son regrets he did
not do. He wishes he had:

  1. Not Chased the Honeycomb! (Proverbs 5:3)
  2. Not Wasted His Health (Proverbs 5:11)
  3. Not Given Away his Honor (Proverbs 5:9)
  4. Hated Instruction (Proverbs 5:12)
  5. Heeded Correction (Proverbs 5:12)
  6. Harkened Unto Teachers (Proverbs 5:13)
  7. Heard His Instructors (Proverbs 5:13)

See the Seductress

Introduction: Proverbs 5 is entirely devoted to the subject of sexual and
marital purity. The chapter contains 4 verses with 13 words, with 4 being
the number for creation (all 4 directions on a compass) and 13 the number of
rebellion. The number 5, the chapter address, is also the number of death,
suggesting the serious of the issue. Verses 3-5 even have a 5-fold description of
the the strange woman:

  1. She has lips of honey (Proverbs 5:3)
  2. She has a mouth smooth as oil (Proverbs 5:3)
  3. Her end is as bitter wormwood (Proverbs 5:4)
  4. Her feet walk the road to ruin (Proverbs 5:5)
  5. Her steps (direction) are to death (Proverbs 5:5)

Conclusion: Chapter 5, though, also contains God’s wonderful solution to the
problem of mankind’s promiscuity. This suggests that the problem discussed
in the chapter is a very common and natural (to a natural lost man and lost
culture) thing. Adultery assuredly is a common problem even among Christian
marriages. Pre-marital relationships are trap which often keeps one for life.
Proverbs 5 does not deal with the issue delicately: it deals with the issue directly. There are sexual urges and appetites that exist and which must be controlled
and directly the correct way. Otherwise, it will be misery and ruin.

Stay Pure and Enjoy it

Introduction: Proverbs 5 is entirely devoted to the subject of sexual and
marital Proverbs 5 contains essential wisdom on pre-marital and extra-marital
sexual relations:

  1. The Father’s Appeal (Proverbs 5:1, 7) There are two separate appeals in
    the proverb, in verses 1 and 7. Some divide the chapter into three sections:
    verses 1-6, verses 7-14, and verses 15-23. The first two contain the father’s
    emotional appeal.
  2. A Fleshly Appetite The appetite for sexual relations is built into mankind.
    It exists. It is natural. It is even wholesome when directed according to
    God’s will. As with all things, though, Satan provides counterfeit and
    convenient ways to get side-tracked.
  3. A Fatal Attraction (Proverbs 5:3-5) Consider the death spiral of verses
    3-5.
  4. A Foolish Absurdity – It is foolish and absurd to think that marital
    infidelity can be done is secret or with impunity. (Proverbs 5:21) reminds
    that the “eyes of the Lord” are watching, and seemingly watching especially
    this!
  5. Faithful Attention The challenge is given to the son to stay faithful to
    only the one God has provided, and to garner immense satisfaction from
    the relationship. The challenge is given to want, to be ravished by, what
    you already have, and not to want something else.
  6. A Fruitful Arrangement (Proverbs 5:15-19) In verses 15 and 16, the
    author uses the metaphor of a flowing waters (cisterns, wells, foundations,
    rivers). In verse 17, attention is brought to the unique privilege of marriage.
    In verses 18 and 19, a request is made to bless the wife in the context of
    marital relations.
  7. Final Accountability (Proverbs 5:21) The passage, finally, and teach-
    ers of it should also, reminds us that God will hold all accountable for
    behavior, including sexual behavior. In the temporal experience, even
    modern medicine, psychology, and sociology confirm that promiscuity is
    self-destructive.

Proverbs 17 Outlines

The Fruit of Fools

Introduction: We all have exhibited foolishness in our lives, but hopefully we are not living
Lives of Foolishness. There is much in Proverbs 17, but focusing on fools and
folly, for now, we see:

  1. Unwanted Family (Proverbs 17:1) a home full of strife and contention…
    it is better to be poor and happy
  2. Unteachable Fool (Proverbs 17:10) Have you ever been one of these? If
    you are a Christian, we have a faithful and dedicated teacher, who will not
    cease the lesson until it is learned.
  3. Unstoppable Fool (Proverbs 17:11) Hell has no fury as a woman scorned
    or as a fool with a mission… if history only recorded the damage done by
    unfettered stupidity
  4. Unrestrained Fanatic (Proverbs 17:11) often in self-righteous and reli-
    gious zeal
  5. Uncontrollable Flood (Proverbs 17:14) once the finger is taken out of
    the hole on the dike the flood will come… There will be damage, there will
    be hurt, things will be irrecoverably affected
  6. Unshakeable Fealty (Proverbs 17:17) another word for loyalty is fealty
  7. Unfulfilled Father (Proverbs 17:21) – – the father of fool Proverbs 17
  8. Unobtainable Focus (Pro 17:24) the fool ever seeking and not finding,
    he has no roots, he has no reason, there is no rhyme in his life… a fool
    is often one who never settles down, always jumping from one thing to
    another.

Contrasts

  5. Destructive Meddling (Proverbs 17:14)
  6. Dangerous Mischief (Proverbs 17:20)
  7. A Discerning Man (Proverbs 17:28)

Proverbs 18 Outlines

The Pursuit of Wisdom

Introduction: At issue in the pursuit of wisdom, is the underlying heart motive. I contest that “Wisdom” is not a thing, but a person, an individual, who is reading our motives as we go. I also context that going to wisdom with the wrong motive could lead to disastrous results. Motives range from 100 per cent evil, to (seldom if ever) 100 per cent right. Some of these motives:

  1. Then Perverted Motive – to learn how manipulate events and circumstances. (Proverb 18:1)
  2. Then Prideful Motive – To become exalted as wise.
  3. Then Public Motive – to be known and famous.
  4. Then Personal Motive – to achieve understanding.
  5. Then Practical Motive – to learn how live without mistakes or errors.
  6. Then Purposeful Motive – to learn navigate a specific problem.
  7. Then Perfect Motive – to learn how to live righteously before God.

What Your Speech Reveals

Introduction: Consider the verses Proverbs 18:4, Proverbs 18:6, Proverbs 18:7, Proverbs 18:8, and Proverbs 18:13. These verses say a lot about what people say. What does your speech reveal? Listen to someone long enough and their tongue will betray their innermost secrets… The things that they love… The things that they focus on… It will reveal if they swim with the deep thinkers or wade in the shallow end of the pool with the other immature and self-focused babies… Your concept of God, Christianity, and spiritual truth will eventually be reflected in your speech, in casual conversation… Some things your tongue will tell about you:

  1. Your Education – or more often, the lack thereof … better to stay quiet than to remove any doubt
  2. Your Excellence – or more often, the lack thereof … the daily barrage of compromise and complacency that you settle for
  3. Your Excitements – what gets you going
  4. Your Enmity – the issues that disturb you,
  5. Your Enemies – who you just might hurt if you had the chance
  6. Your End – considering the rest of Proverbs, it if usually clear where your
    road is headed
  7. Your Emptiness
  8. Your Entanglements – what preoccupies you is what has you in chains

A Man Focused on God’s Wisdom

Introduction: Proverbs 18:1 gives some hints about a man who is ostensibly focused on getting God’s wisdom. Can we relate to this kind of person? Do we have any biblical examples? Could it be Elijah, or John the Baptist?

  1. Will be an Inspired Man –
  2. Will be Separate from the Ignorant Masses –
  3. For him most things in life will have Insignificant Meaning –
  4. Lives in an Isolated Manner
  5. Lives by an Individual Mandate – seldom supported by friends, and
  6. Has an intense and Insular Mentality –

So, this is a guy who is mostly unwanted and unwelcome. Vast majority cannot related to him. How much are you like this man? How much do you want to be? How much do you think you should be?

Introduction: (Proverbs 25:25) The typology in the verse should be crystal clear: The “good news” is clearly the gospel, the “far country” is that spoken of in Isaiah 33:17 and Luke 19:12, and the “thirsty soul” is a repentant man ready for salvation:

  1. Water is more Important than food for survival

Proverbs 28 Outlines

Recognizing the Wicked

Introduction: The practices and destiny of the wicked are fairly easy to recognize and fairly clear from scripture.

  1. The Wicked Flee They flee without being pursued, always afraid that their misdeeds are going to catch them. (Proverbs 28:1)
  2. The Wicked Forget They forsake the law and are praised by other wicked for doing so. (Proverbs 28:4)
  3. The Wicked Forsakes his Father (Proverbs 28:7)
  4. The Wicked Fleece the Poor (Proverbs 28:8) The wicked make their substance by usury and unjust gain, by cheating and dealing falsely.
  5. The Wicked Fall into Their Own Pit (Proverbs 28:10)
  6. The Wicked are Foolish (Proverbs 28:16)
  7. The Wicked Follows his Own Heart (Proverbs 28:26)

The Ways of the Wicked

Introduction: Expressed in different terms, these are some of the ways of the wicked. Just in case we had any doubt of people who exhibit these behaviors, God calls them wicked. A wicked man:

  1. Perverts the Way of Right – The wicked rich get to their goal, riches, by perverting the ways of the Lord. But their riches do not make them better. (Proverbs 28:6)
  2. Oppresses the Poor – God has a special place in his heart and his eyes are always watching over the poor and helpless. So he notices when they are mistreated. (Proverbs 28:8)
  3. Promotes only His Own Gain – Is absolutely blind to the needs of
    others. (Proverbs 28:11)
  4. Pretends to be Righteous (Proverbs 28:13)
  5. Pursues Wealth blindly – It is blind ambition. (Proverbs 28:22)
  6. Pilfers from his Parents – The attitude is one that the parents owe the money to him anyway. The parents have been mistreating him by not financing every fleeting desire. (Proverbs 28:24)
  7. Perish in Oblivion – Precious in the eyes of the Lord is the death of his saints, but what of the wicked? (Proverbs 28:28)

Proverbs 31 Outlines

The Husband of the Virtuous Woman

Introduction: In most instances this passage is treated as a list of attributes of the virtuous woman. This is fine, but here, for a change, we’ll consider how a husband should respond to a treat the virtuous woman.

  1. Treasures Her (Proverbs 31:10)
  2. Trusts in Her (Proverbs 31:11)
  3. Trades by Her (Proverbs 31:14, 24)
  4. Is Taken Care of by Her (Proverbs 31:12, 15, 21, 27)
  5. Triumphs Because of Her (Proverbs 31:23)
  6. Thanks Her (Proverbs 31:28, 30)
  7. He Entrusts Her The husband of a virtuous woman will entrust her with
    resources. She will not be extravagant. She will not be foolish. Instead
    she will use the resources wisely to be a blessing to her family or others.
    (Proverbs 31:28,30)

Viewing Virtue

Introduction: So, here is one attempt at describing this virtuous woman in Proverbs 31. The  Bible has much to say about the opposite, maybe personified as the “strange woman,” but for now we this is an opportunity to View Virtue. We see, then:

  1. Her Purity (Proverbs 31:11)
    A. Purity in Heart
    B. Purity in Head (her mind and thinking)
    C. Purity in Habit
    D. Purity in her Home (this purity is reflected in what goes on in her
    home)
  2. Her Prudence Prudence is the ability or wisdom to see and o what is
    best in the situation. Godliness adds the requirement for that prudent
    decision and action to be morally right.
    A. Prudent financially (knows how to be economical – doesn’t have a
    spending problem)
    B. Prudent with time
    C. Prudent in ordering events (what needs to be done first)
  3. Her Perception (Proverbs 31:19)
    A. She recognizes the needs of others
    B. She sees the need for action
    C. She knows (maybe intuition) the root of the issues – I can think of
    many areas where I know to trust women’s intuition
  4. Her Patience (Proverbs 31:19)
  5. Her Praiseworthiness (Proverbs 31:28)
  6. Her Productivity (Proverbs 31:15, 19)
  7. Her Pricelessness (Proverbs 31:28)

The Winsome Woman of Wisdom

Introduction: Much is said in Proverbs about the strange woman and the foolish woman, Proverbs 31, gives us a picture of the opposite woman, the desirable woman, the one who can be regarded as the epitomy of wisdom.

  1. She is like Royalty in the Making – Whether or not the woman spo-
    ken of in this chapter was a queen or royalty, she considers herself to be
    something special and lives above the everyday usual and ordinary. She
    is not pretentious or presumptive. She just lives like everything she has is
    precious and should be treated as such – her time, her talent, her tools,
    her treasure, the things with which she has been entrusted. She dresses,
    works, lives, like there is meaning in life. (Proverbs 31:22, 23)
  2. She is a Rich Mine (Proverbs 31:10)
  3. She is the Role Model The noble woman presents an image of superior
    achievement in every area of life. In an era in which industry is discour-
    aged by emphasis on rights over responsibilities, get-rich-quick schemes,
    and preoccupation with goods acquired on credit, the lyiHa-tw,xe models
    an industrious and productive lifestyle that contributes to the prosperity
    of the home and of society at large. In keeping with descriptions through-
    out the Book of Proverbs, this culminating picture reinforces the thought
    that anyone whose character, commitment, godliness, and productivity
    replicate the qualities of this woman has learned to live wisely. (Proverbs
    31:10-31)
  4. She is a Reflection of Maturity – First, no young bride can possibly
    fulfill all that is pictured in this poem before developing the maturity that
    comes only with time. This portrait looks at the finished product, not
    at a young woman entering marriage. It reflects the cumulative effect of
    a life lived wisely. At any given point in life a person can only seek to
    move in the direction this superb and’ energetic woman has laid out for all to follow. She serves as d kind of pictorial mentor of the “ultimate” wife
    just as the qualities listed for church leaders in 1 Timothy 3 and Titus 1
    describe the direction and focus a man’s life should take if he aspires to
    be a church leader. (Proverbs 31:10-31)
  5. Her life should be Regarded as a Ministry (Proverbs 31:10-31)
  6. She is marvelous in the Realm of Motherhood (Proverbs 31:10-31)
  7. She is Notable in her Rarity as a Mate – Verse 10 has 13 words, reflecting
    the rarity of such a woman as this: (1) rebellion of females in actually
    wanting to be or being such a woman, (2) rebellion of males in wanting
    and finding such a woman (or waiting for and recognizing such), and (3)
    since there is a role in the husband in developing such a woman over time,
    the rebellion of husbands against doing so. (Proverbs 31:10-31)

A Different Sort of Woman

Introduction: Different in Her:

  1. Worth (Proverbs 31:10)
  2. Work (Proverbs 31:13)
  3. Window (Proverbs 31:18) – she sets a candle, and her place is known as a sanctuary
  4. Wardrobe (Proverbs 31:22) – not dressed for show, but to be about business
  5. Words (Proverbs 31:26)
  6. Wisdom (Proverbs 31:26)
  7. Wholesomeness (Proverbs 31:30)
