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.
Dating with wisdom means we also understand the importance of emotional and spiritual boundaries by learning not to go too deep, too fast.
In biblical times, the process of meeting a spouse had very little to do with compatibility and personality traits, and everything to do with family lineage and economic status.
Finding a mate functioned a lot more like a bartering system than dinner and a movie.
Not only is there nothing in the Bible specifically about dating, but the concept of dating didn’t even exist in biblical times.
Even today in many areas of the Middle East, dating is a relatively new concept and couples can’t even be seen together in public unless they are officially “engaged” to be married.
This is not the only way the early part of a relationship might look.
These are simply suggested applications of biblical principles.God’s Word reminds us of the importance of connecting with people who are in line with our spiritual life (2 Corinthians , 1 Corinthians ).The truth about relationships is that the healthier both individuals are emotionally and spiritually, the healthier the relationship will be.All over Scripture, we are reminded of the value of a physical relationship within the context of a committed marriage and the risks of intimacy outside of marriage (Hebrews 13:4, Song of Solomon 8:4).Dating well means we make sure to honor and respect this portion of our future marriage by setting physical limits and boundaries when it comes to interacting with the opposite sex.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.
