Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.” (NIV) These three scriptures give insight into the Christian dating life.
It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
You do not need to date a lot of people – just the right one. The word “love” is thrown around with little thought. We live for God’s love first and foremost, but we also live for the love of others.
While there are many definitions of love, 1 Corinthians tells us how God defines love.
Be careful of recreational dating, where you date for the sake of dating.
However, there is actually nothing in the Bible that prohibits dating people of other races.
While you may not be looking at marrying anyone at the moment, it should always be in the back of your head.
Why get involved emotionally with someone that you should not marry?
Ask yourself if the two of you are patient and kind to one another. God is pretty picky on this one, and the Bible makes this issue very clear.
The Bible seriously warns us about dating non-Christians.
He is clear on whom you should date and why you should date.
