Today I am going to talk about courtship vs dating. Now I am not a psychologist or a pastor. I am just a mom who was a girl….I am speaking from experiences in my life…

When I think of dating now…as the mom to 4 kids…2 of which are young adult men and 1 a teen GIRL! Annnnd looking back on my own history of what could be called as dating…it was more just boyfriend girlfriend no real dates…lots of heartache and drama. Oh the DRAMA!

Obviously I am not telling my grown boys to court….but neither of them have girlfriends at this point in their lives.

My 14 year old daughter has never had a boyfriend. By the time I was her age I had had many…sad!

With each boyfriend or relationship you have you give a little piece of your heart to that guy. If you do this too many times what do you have left to give to your husband?

Not only that, but when you are dating, with no intentions of marrying that guy…which really at 14 or 15 are you thinking long term? You are holding the hand of some girls husband! Or KISSING some girls husband…and THAT GUY is kissing some guys WIFE! YOU!

So, girls, just think about it. Are you wanting to date so you aren’t alone? So you can say ‘Oh look I have a boyfriend’?

Hindsight for me? I would have waited…obviously God had other plans and I am BLESSED beyond my wildest dreams….But there are still missing pieces.

1 Corinthians 6:18-20

1 Corinthians 6:18-20 (New International Version)

1 Corinthians 6:18-20

New International Version (NIV)

 18 Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body. 19 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.

 

These two books come highly recommended by Joey… our resident guy….Josh Harris’ books, I Kissed Dating Goodbye and Boy Meets Girl: Say Hello to Courtship.
