Leaky Plumbing

Proverbs 5:17-19
15 Drink water from your own cistern,
And running water from your own well.
16 Should your fountains be dispersed abroad,
Streams of water in the streets?
17 Let them be only your own,
And not for strangers with you.
18 Let your fountain be blessed,
And rejoice with the wife of your youth.
19 As a loving deer and a graceful doe,
Let her breasts satisfy you at all times;
And always be enraptured with her love.

I was checking my email at 5:30 this morning and I find a spam for a porn site. My preview pane was open and I caught a glimpse of the html email containing some topless females. Not a good way to begin the day. It's not often that my filter misses these. Then I read today's passage in Proverbs. It got me thinking about the impact of porn.

I was struck by the "fountain" idea in this passage. It's like the distraction of sexual fantasy causes leaks in the plumbing of a marriage. Sexual fantasy also causes leaks in our anointing. Both of these leaks cause run-off and waste that which God intended to provide good "pressure" in our lives. I remember when California was in extreme drought and water was being rationed. You couldn't water your grass or wash your car because the "water police" would issue you a fine if they saw run-off from your house. There is a "fine," a cost to wasting what God has supplied in your own well.

I want the fountain of my life to be blessed; to be at full pressure. I cannot afford to distracted by cheap thrills which don't satisfy. I cannot waste what God has supplied on air-brushed strangers. I am enraptured with my wife. And we will rejoice in the life and love God as given to us.

Lord, let me walk in even greater purity. Help me find the areas of leakage in my life so they can be repaired. I want Your pressure in my life to be strong. I am satisfied with what You have blessed me with.
