We had a blast at our Couples’ Night last week. We ate, talked, & learned. And we all lost to Taylor & Elisabeth in a game.
We need the Song of Solomon—that little, (slightly) odd book tucked away in the Old Testament.
in our day of self-focused love & marriage, the Song of Songs shines brightly & calls us to self-giving, joyful love that will last. A love that is romantic, tender, reciprocal, & deeply satisfying.
That’s what we want for our marriages more than anything else.
As Song of Songs holds out for us:
Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm, for love is strong as death, jealousy is fierce as the grave. Its flashes are flashes of fire, the very flame of the LORD. Many waters cannot quench love, neither can floods drown it. If a man offered for love all the wealth of his house, he would be utterly despised (8:6–7).
Let us pursue this love & heed the words of Matt Chandler who has written: “Pay attention to the desires, the strengths, the growth of your spouse, the things that only you get to see. Mine for those. Look for those. Be dialed in. Pay attention.”
