Bible scripture for dating
The fact is you usually end up marrying those you date, therefore, consider the person’s you are dating and their relationship to the Lord (2 Cor. The child of God should always put their relationship to the Lord first.If we date people who are not in a right relationship to God (perfection is not the issue since none of us are perfect), and we end up marrying them, there is a good chance that the unbeliever will cause us to fall away.Have you ever asked; what does the bible say about dating?
Jacob declared his willingness to work as his uncle's hired hand for seven years for Rachel.
