people are love and respecting (now).
Join the movement.
So I have this friend Billy who does not believe in dating. He says there are no examples in the bible to give us grounds for modern dating, therefore what’s the point?
Oh Billy, there are also no examples of eating ice cream in the bible, so what’s the point of going to Dairy Queen?
The purpose of dating is to get married — which is in fact something that we see clearly in Scripture; this is God’s design and heart for relationships.
What we call the pre-marriage state is not the issue, but the question to challenge ourselves with is…
…are we living obediently to what we do see in Scripture?
Proverbs 18:22 says, “A man who finds a wife finds a good thing.”
Call it what you want: dating, courting or Facebook stalking, but sitting at home on your couch will not help you find a wife.
We have choices when it comes to romantic relationships, but choice takes risk.
Let me challenge you Nate, as a friend, to ask Billy if there is a deeper fear of risk-taking.
From one ice cream lover to another,
What ways do think dating helps prepare for marriage?
How do you balance being wise with taking a risk?
Love and Respect (Now) is a division of Love and Respect. Please be considerate.
