Today, we study Song of Solomon 2. As we read, more beautiful verse pop out. Verse 7 (NLT) “Not to awaken love until the time is right” tells us that feelings of love can create emotions that overpower reason. Young people too often rush into a relationship based on their strong feelings. But feelings aren’t enough to support a lasting relationship. This verse encourages us to wait patiently for feelings of love and commitment to develop.
As we moved on, we see Verse 13 (MSG) is one of my favourites “Oh, get up, dear friend, my fair and beautiful lover – come to me”. God wants sex to be motivated by love and commitment, and not lust. It is for mutual pleasure, and not selfish enjoyment. Christ’s love for us brings the passion for prayer and worship. The passion of prayer within us leads to a new life and new growth.
Finally, verse 15 (NLT) ” Catch all the foxes,those little foxes, before they ruin the vineyard of love”. How that one verse can bring out such an important message for the day. Catch those little foxes refers to all those little problems we face and ignore it as they are little. This verse points out that we oughta to solve those little problems quickly before they lead into a bigger ones.
Happy studying girls.
