Flies In Perfume

Passage: Ecclesiastes 10:1-15

Series: Ecclesiastes

I Peter 4:4 In all this, they are surprised that you do not run with them into the same excesses of dissipation, and they malign you

Song of Solomon 2:15 The 2little foxes that are ruining the vineyards

Importance Of Composure (:4-10)

and they will be challenged

Otherwise your work could all come back to ensnare you
