Bible study teenage dating
The world says that living together before you're married is completely normal because, well, how else would you find out if your boyfriend's/girlfriend's habits are too annoying to live with?
Sadly, this is a very self-centered way of entering into a relationship.
"Courtship" is generally viewed as pursuing a relationship with the full intention to marry the other person.
The world is constantly sending a message of "try before you buy" when it comes to dating.The Bible does not actually mention the terms "dating" and "courtship", but we can definitely find some principles about relationships that will help us understand what's up with this touchy subject.First things first, let's separate how the world views dating from how God wants us to handle the period of time before a couple gets married.Does the person show love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control, which are the fruits of the spirit (Galatians -23)?When you've committed to another person in a romantic relationship, remember to keep God as the most important Person in your life (Matthew ).
