Bible study on teen dating

24 Mar

If you are in high school or college, the chances are that you are in love with someone right now, or think you might be. Still others do not know the difference between lust and love. You are not yourself." Caroline will smile sweetly and say, "Oh, I'm in love." No, she isn't! If she were in love and her love was the real thing, she would be concerned about her duties, preparing and planning for her future. What does last is the bitter fruit of wrongdoing committed during the infatuation. On the other hand, the Bible tells of the love Jacob had for Rachel. And it carries with it the vital quality of commitment It doesn't give up or quit when problems come along. Real love is not just a wonderful feeling that strikes you suddenly. Some of the most popular songs in the world of music give the wrong impression that falling in love with someone at first sight is real love.

You can truly mess up your emotions by getting involved when you are not ready. An infatuation is the state of being completely carried away by an attraction to someone.

I decided if I do not do this, I am going to lose him. I worked at a cocktail lounge at night, which was awful. Do not ever believe that you can live without love because you cannot. This seems to be the popular thing to do these days. This was what was missing in my relationship with Joe. He really did not respect me and I did not really respect him. Another mistake was getting involved sexually when I had no business doing it. I was not old enough or mature enough to face the consequences of a sexual relationship.

What I should have decided was if he cannot wait for me and do it my way, then it is not worth it. But I jumped into this not knowing it would be the biggest hurt in my life. You cannot count on the people around you to give you that love either but you can count on God. Just because you have all the necessary parts to have, a sexual relationship with someone does not mean that you are ready to get into it.

It is something that should he held sacred for marriage. The dictionary calls it "being blindly in love." In other words, you are so carried away by this that you don't know what you are doing.

If you go back to the basics in what a relationship is all about you will see that you have friendship first, secondly you are both Christians, and out of that grows a love. From there you go to dating and being serious and then later getting married. The one involved in a romantic infatuation usually cannot think of anything or anyone else other that the person he or she is "in love with." An infatuation is an exciting experience--an emotional high--but it never lasts long because it is NOT true love. You are irresponsible and you tend to neglect your duties.
