Proverbs 7:7 “And behold among the simple ones, I discerned among the youths, a young man void of understanding.” Strong passion is characteristic of youth, and many think that yielding to these evidences manhood, but actually the opposite is true. Lack of discretion and self-control is characteristic of immaturity. Manhood is manifested by self-control and understanding of what is right and proper, and acting accordingly. If giving in to unrestrained lust evidences manhood, then most animals are manly, for they follow no rule but lust. Clearly then the giving in to lust without regard to the consequences is evidence of beastliness, not manhood.
