Do you remember, as a young person, there might be a person, of the opposite sex, you spent lots of time with, and enjoyed every minute; but if someone asked why y’all didn’t date, you’d say “Oh, we’re too good of friends. I wouldn’t want to ruin our friendship.”? That’s the biggest bunch of bull I’ve ever heard! Dating your best friend doesn’t ruin the friendship! What typically ruins that friendship is having sex outside marriage! I’m just saying! I’m 44 years old and have been friends with my BFF, Lajuana, since we were seven years old. We are different as night and day, (not having anything in common is one of the main reasons people say they want a divorce) yet we’ve remained close friends all these years. How’s that, when we don’t have that much in common? We didn’t have sex that’s how! That may sound funny to you, but the truth is, sex outside of the way God intended causes problems. Period!
Single people listen up. At the end of it all, friendship with your mate is WAY more important than physical attraction! WAAAAYY MORE! Unless you have unlimited amounts of money, things start to change. Body parts get squishy. Some get bigger, some get smaller. Some aren’t even in the same places they used to be! When you turn 40, things just don’t look the same, nor do they function the same as when you’re 20. I’m sorry, but these are just the facts.
The world has lots of things backward. We place way too much emphasis on looks and physical attraction. Don’t get me wrong, you shouldn’t date a person if you throw up in the back of your mouth every time you look at them! There has to be some sort of attraction! But I can tell you this, marrying your best friend, would be one of the smartest things you could ever do!
Ultimately the smartest thing you can do is to find out who you are in Christ, then, and only then, look for a mate! Then make sure that they know who they are in Christ! If a person doesn’t love The Lord, chances are they won’t know how to love you either. You have to experience true love before you can give it, and real true love is found in Jesus!
Don’t miss out on finding true love! Look to Jesus’ standards, not the world’s! Do things in the order God intended, and don’t put ANYONE above Him! Remember, that hunk could turn into a chunk, and that hottie could lose that body! Want to make your relationship easier? ( They ALL require work, but they can be easier) Do things the way Christ intended!
Training your body helps you in some ways. But devotion to God helps you in every way. It brings you blessings in this life and in the future life too. 1 Timothy 4:8
