Nothing else can protect us from diving in too quickly or jumping ship when things get hard.
If you’re hoping to marry someone who passionately loves Jesus and makes him known, it’s probably best to put yourself in a community of people committed to that.
Some of us have tried dating and been burned—confusion, rejections, sexual failure, breakups, or whatever else plagues our relationships.
With all the pain, failure, and friction, it simply can’t be worth it, can it?
The only thing worth dating for is a marriage—a lifelong, life-on-life love like Jesus’s love for us.
Nothing else is worth all the risks we take when we begin to share our heart with someone else.
