Christian advice for dating teenagers
I have seen middle school students “fall in love.” I have seen high school students date for years and continue dating into their college years.
I have seen teenagers hit rock bottom as the person they are dating ends the relationship.
They neglect friends, family, and even God at times because their boyfriend or girlfriend has become the most important person in their life.
Many times when teenagers date they place the person they are dating at the center of their lives.
I have never met a teenage dating couple who does not struggle in this area.
Teenagers need to understand that God created sex to be enjoyed in the context of marriage.
A few weeks ago I talked to our students about dating in our “Dating, Marriage, and Sex” series. However, if you want to hear more about these Biblical principles that can be applied to dating I’d encourage you to listen to that talk online.
Every week, I go through the “Girl Talk” section of Project Inspired and look for those seeking advice and counsel.
True compatibility grows from a join quest to follow God, to conform your life to the guidelines of the Bible and to draw from the spiritual resources found in Christ.” Pursue sexual purity.
