In most aspects of modern life, God doesn’t provide cookie-cutter answers or formulas.But be encouraged, though He may not always provide us with the direct plan, He always gives us everything we need to get where He wants us to go.Though the Bible doesn’t talk directly about dating, it does speak volumes about relationships, godly interactions and principles that can be applied to how you date.1 Corinthians reminds us that no matter what it is we’re doing; it can be used as a means to glorify God. Once I’ve proclaimed my maturity and grown in it, there’s no turning back. In all this growing and learning, God has been teaching me to put my trust in Him above all.Relationships I once thought were okay have been outgrown. My hope must be in God, not in “dating.” My faith belongs to the almighty who matched Ruth with Boaz.To call this dating would insult previous generations’ version of dating.
When people say the word dating I think of; candlelit dinners in fancy restaurants or a romantic comedy in the cinema or even going bowling.
I’d class those three events as possible date locations.
Whatever it is the couple plan on doing as their date, I always believe a date involves you leaving your house.
Type the word “dating” into your Bible search tool and what comes up? When I was single, I remember wishing there was an entire book—or even just a chapter—of the Bible dedicated to the topic of dating.
But though the Scriptures are filled with foundational life-changing truths, there are plenty of topics the Bible doesn’t specifically speak to.
