Proverbs 6:27-29; 33
INTRODUCTION: "He who is alone with his sin, is utterly alone. The pious fellowship permits no one to be a sinner. So, everyone must conceal his sin from himself and from the fellowship.

He seeks godly offspring.
Therefore take heed to your spirit,
And let none deal treacherously with the wife of his youth."
