Love in Relationships
In terms of our relationships, how often have we sought love where we know it won’t be found? Everyone longs for love, and nearly every girl grows up imagining the ideal mate – at true gentleman who stands out among today’s modern men like a knight among boys. When he doesn’t show up, her dream begins to fade. Although the thirst for authentic love is ingrained in her heart, she may begin to settle for less, imposing her hopes on guys who fall short of them.
Dating: What’s the Point?
Although there are a million wrong reasons to date, there’s only one right reason: to find a spouse. Such a narrow purpose may seem rigid or old-fashioned, and perhaps it is….It may be old –fashioned to date for the sake of finding a spouse, but a surprising number of people have found it to be a fresh alternative to the stale and mindless dating circuses. Those who have spent years dating for superficial reasons often complain about how much of their lives were spent going nowhere. After all, if you’re not dating with your eyes on forever, you’re just dating to break up. In other words, it’s divorce practice.
Accepting the Invitation
Do you believe that God has an invitation waiting for you? If not, why? Perhaps the suffering you have experienced in life has caused you to doubt God’s existence. You may have thought, “If God is so good and loving, why have so many bad things happened to me? If He is so powerful, why didn’t He stop those things from taking place?” Unexplained suffering has led many people to dismiss the idea of a personal, loving God…for a person to claim that she is not into the “God thing” could be compared to the acorn that claims it’s not really into the “soil thing”… There is a foundation that is in place. If we have been made by God and for God, then our lives will not make sense apart from Him. If we lose sight of our origin, we’ll miss our destiny. We’re made for more than this world can offer.
