The woes of wantonness Proverbs 5:11

I. Lamentation follows wantonness.
1. When men find their goods gone and their bodies corrupted.
2. When they see all their opportunities of doing good to soul and body gone.
3. They feel God’s hand heavy on them, as being on the rack of an evil conscience.

II. The end of wanton courses is sorrowful.
1. Because of pleasures past.
2. Because of present sorrows.
3. Because of pursuing pain that is gotten by disease.
4. Because of public shame.

III. The body itself is consumed by wantonness. Because it consumes the radical humour of the body. (Francis Taylor, B. D.)
