She seems to be everywhere, the strange woman does.
No, not the weird or odd or off-the-wall woman. No, not that kind of strange.
I used to understand her to be strange in a contrary-to-godly sort of way. I haven’t discarded that understanding. I have added to it, based on the wording in my Spanish Bible — mujer ajena. A woman not my own.
She seems to be everywhere.
I saw two of her in a magazine this morning already. A homeschooling magazine. A Christian homeschooling magazine.
Alas, as Christian women, I’m sure neither one imagined a Christian man somewhere putting her in the Strange Woman category.
So…what did I read in Proverbs 7 that provoked that train of thought?!
“That they may keep thee from the strange woman, from the stranger which flattereth with her words” (Proverbs 7:5).
Now tell me, who are the they that will do that kind of keeping?
