Differences in courting and dating accommodating science the rhetorical life of scientific facts
It is not uncommon that by the time a person is married, he feels like he has already been through five divorces. Am I supposed to shelter myself, put walls around my heart, and forget having a social life? The alternative is to rethink the way we approach relationships.
Whether we admit it or not, the world has molded our views of preparing for marriage.
Woo hoo–real practical for a guy just out of college, living in Southern California.” I had heard a great deal about courtship, but when I began reading books on the subject I ended up liking the idea more than I hoped I would.
There was a great deal of wisdom that I had never tapped into.
Many people would begin a relationship simply because they found the other to be cute and fun.
We should be intent on finding out if it is the Lord’s will for us to be with a certain person, and until we are ready to move in the direction of marriage, what is the point of committing to another?
Some may retort that this is all too serious, but should we be giving our hearts away to people who are in no position to make a real commitment?
I am not proposing that you build an impenetrable wall around your heart, but that you guard it with prudence.
We can wrestle over the terms “courtship” and “dating,” but the essential thing is to glorify God and act wisely.
