10 Scriptures Singles Need to Guide Their Dating Decisions


I adjure you, O daughters of Jerusalem, by the gazelles or the does of the field, that you not stir up or awaken love until it pleases.” (Song of Solomon 2:7)

Song of Solomon and his bride lovingly warn us not to stir up love before it pleases. In other words, don’t rush things! Don’t pine for a relationship while you’re single. Don’t pine for marriage while you’re dating. Rather, embrace each season of your life with trust in the very God who has your days numbered and planned.

10. Know Who You Belong To

I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.” (Romans 12:1)

When dating, we would do well to remember that as Christians, our bodies are not our own, but were bought with a price. Everything we do with our bodies, both in and out of dating relationships, should be acceptable before God.
