Views on courtship and dating
Colossians says, "Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord." That said, let's take a look at what the Bible says about romantic relationships.
The Bible does not actually mention the terms "dating" and "courtship", but we can definitely find some principles about relationships that will help us understand what's up with this touchy subject.
Through it all, remember to keep God as the most important person in your life (Galatians ; Colossians 3:5), never a romantic interest. She loves audiobooks, feeding the people she cares about, and using Christmas lights to illuminate a room.
When Catiana is not writing, cooking, or drawing, she enjoys spending time with her two kids, five socially-awkward cats, and her amazing friend-amily.
Strange as it sounds, having God as the focus of your life will help you to love that other person even better.
In dating or courting relationships, be aware of avoiding sexual temptation.
Has the person accepted Christ as his or her Savior (John 3:3-8; 2 Corinthians -15)?
That kind of attitude and motivation will ultimately lead to a relationship ending in disaster.
Even very well-meaning, God-loving Christian couples can fall into the trap of selfishness when it comes to relationships.
Dating and courting are basically the same thing—just different terms.
"Courtship" is generally viewed as pursuing a relationship with the full intention to marry the other person.
