Getting to the Middle of a Relationship WAY Too Fast
- Friday, August 19, 2005
If we spend time with God, learning about Him, learning about ourselves and becoming more like Him, then we will know the journey He wants us to go and who to take along. I believe when we meet with the opposite sex or anyone for that reason, our goal should be to get to know them for Christ's purpose, not ours. You never know who that person might become in your life. I would rather have one best friend that is there for the journey than 10 who have not only distracted me but also taken my eyes off the journey.
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily hinders our progress. And let us run with endurance the race that God has set before us. We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, on whom our faith depends from start to finish. (Hebrews 12: 1-2)
