Back then, families helped young women and men meet and become engaged and often chose their children’s mates for them.Today, while familial involvement is still the norm in many cultures, in many others, singles are more on their own to find a mate.As in all decisions, we should ask God to direct us clearly.It can be difficult to meet single Christian men and women, especially if most of our friends have already married.Each has its pros and cons, and none is right for everyone.
There should be a balance, as we remember that God is perfectly loving (Ephesians ; 1 John -18) and perfectly sovereign over every situation, desire, and need (Psalm 1; Romans -39).
In fact, it doesn’t even tell us how to “date” or “court,” or whatever term we use for the process we use to get to know a potential mate.
In the Bible times, dating did not exist in the same form that we see it today.
A Christian man should take the lead in relationships and making sure their relationship glorifies Christ in all things.
A Christian woman should let the man take the initiative as the leader God made him to be.
