Memory Verse: “If any man defiles the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are”.– 1 Cor. 3:17.

Bible Passage: Prov. 6:23-29, 32-33. 



Adultery and fornication are not just sins against God (1 Cor. 6:19-20) but also against one’s soul (1 Peter 2:11) and body (1 Cor. 6:18).
