It seems the media loves to follow major flooding, snow storms and hurricanes as if death and destruction were the coolest thing around! No matter how troubling those stories are, we know God is in control of nature. Only doing what God tells us...obedience to the Bible..glorify Him. The next few days you'll notice many of the lessons cover a lot more areas of life than just dating. In your life...including your dating life..need to ask God first. That said...let's talk about some principles about teen dating. God talks about His close relationship with His people (v. I didn't mean for this to be "Intro to French." And that's not literally what that phrase means anyway. Stick with me.) these words carry the idea that government isn't to interfere in places it doesn't belong. Too many times I've seen teen couples with their hands all over each other..in public no less! Notice verse two talks about everyone having their own spouse. Some day he or she may become someone else's husband or wife. And it's quite clear in Exodus that God is talking to all people..just children. This is especially true while you're living with them and obeying them as well.
Ultimately, remember, you're not the point of the relationship—Jesus is.
Point each other to Christ and let Christ knit you together as he sees fit.
