Ever seen an appealing advert? Buy now and don’t start paying until … consolidate all your loans in this fantastic offer … be on the cutting edge with this new product! All with the desire to ensnare you into something that could cost you more than you could ever pay. Sweet talk and flattery can lead you to a fate worse than death – a life of misery with the consequences of those foolish decisions.
And so, she tricked him with all of her sweet talk and her flattery. (Proverbs 7:21)
