Godly courtship and dating
Pastor Tinashe Zinyemba LAST week we mentioned that a Godly relationship should be different and I felt the need to revisit something that we touched on last year – dating and courtship.
I came across some interesting material and decided to share it for your benefit.
Dating does not carry special divine sanction like marriage. Instead, couples usually date with the selfish goals of having fun and enjoying romantic attachments.In contrast, courtship is undertaken only when both parties are prepared to make a commitment to marry.Since the boundaries of the relationship are self-determined, the couple may easily succumb to temptation and fail to consider their responsibility to honour each other in purity and genuine love.A couple in courtship seeks the influence and guidance of their parents or mentors.
