Youth devotions on dating
In fact, it normally caused that person a lot of problems. The bad influences you allow in your life will form you into who you are more than any good influences you try to use to counter the bad. Date those who have dedicated their lives to living as Christ would have them live.
It seems the media loves to follow major flooding, snow storms and hurricanes as if death and destruction were the coolest thing around! No matter how troubling those stories are, we know God is in control of nature. Only doing what God tells us...obedience to the Bible..glorify Him. The next few days you'll notice many of the lessons cover a lot more areas of life than just dating. In your life...including your dating life..need to ask God first. That said...let's talk about some principles about teen dating. God talks about His close relationship with His people (v. I didn't mean for this to be "Intro to French." And that's not literally what that phrase means anyway. Stick with me.) these words carry the idea that government isn't to interfere in places it doesn't belong. Too many times I've seen teen couples with their hands all over each other..in public no less! Notice verse two talks about everyone having their own spouse. Some day he or she may become someone else's husband or wife. And it's quite clear in Exodus that God is talking to all people..just children. This is especially true while you're living with them and obeying them as well. ) The storm of outrage against dating produced a book that encouraged teens to "kiss" teen dating goodbye and go with another option. God doesn't look down on relationships that honor and glorify Him. "Haste makes waste." I doubt the person who said this had dating in mind..it definitely applies. But I will tell you there are a few verses in there that come very close to saying that about teen dating! Hanging around with bad company will harm us spiritually. Teen declares he/she can "change" that person or lead them to Christ or... But rememer the verse above..doesn't work that way. If their character is flawed, they're spiritually ugly and weak. Date Christians who have proven their Christian character. The truth is...they've done a whole lot more living than you have. Don't feed your soul only once or twice a week at church... Everyone has opinions on teen dating (and you know what they say about opinions...they're like armpits...everybody has them..they all stink! And keep you're most serious feelings for that person who is worthy of them..person you one day marry. And I can't say it's a direct quotation from the Bible. This is saying we shouldn't get close to those whose character stinks. They were deceived into thinking good character would rub off on bad. If you're a girl..only guys who model strong Christian leadership skills in their lives. It doesn't matter what kind of figure or how athletic they might be. The best way to keep it right is to live the Word of God..to live the Bible you need to know the Bible..to know the Bible you need to study it. You don't feed your body once or twice a week to keep it going! You will not truly love anyone else if you do not love God first and most.And no one will truly love you if they do not love God more than they love you.
