Song of Solomon 2:7

Song of Solomon 2:7

I charge you, O daughters of Jerusalem, By the gazelles or by the does of the field, Do not stir up nor awaken love Until it pleases.

Song of Solomon 2:7

When I teach young people about dating, I focus on three verses. The first verse is Ephesians 6:1, Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. Their parents will set the guidelines for what they feel is acceptable in their child’s dating life, though I do caution the young people their guidelines should line up with God’s word.

The second verse is 2 Corinthians 6:14 which reads, Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? Once they begin dating, they should be going out with Christians, those who believe in Jesus and have their same Spiritual values.

Finally, the third verse is Matthew 5:28, which is Jesus saying, But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. So once you are dating, what are you allowed to do? Not much, according to Jesus and the verse above. Those words in that verse above are written three times in the Song of Solomon and is a warning not to rush the physical part of a relationship before marriage. Judging by the actions I’ve seen lately in young people, this can’t be emphasized enough.

Train up your child in the way he or she should go,
