What Makes for Good Dating?


1) Good Words

Proverbs 15:4, “Gentle words bring life and health; a deceitful tongue crushes the spirit.”

The 12 most needed words:






Hosea 2:14, “I will win her back once again. I will lead her into the desert and speak tenderly to her there.”

Matthew 12:36, “I tell you this, you must give an account on judgment day for every idle word you speak.”


Dating Truth: dates thrive when your words breathe life, take your breath away, and provide breathing room.


2) Better Patience

Colossians 3:12, “Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.”


Song of Songs 2:15, “Catch all the foxes, those little foxes, before they ruin the vineyard of love, for the grapevines are blossoming!”


1 Thessalonians 3:12 (CEV), “May the Lord make your love for each other…grow by leaps and bounds.”


Revelation 2:4-5, “…You don’t love me like you did at first. Look how far you have fallen! Turn back…and do the works you did at first.”


                                    You need:

  • You need a daily connect.
  • Weekly date.
  • Constantly serve.

Closing thought:


Dating Truth:“So this is my prayer: that your love will flourishand that you will not only love much but well. Learn to love appropriately. You need to use your head and test your feelings so that your love is sincere and intelligent, not sentimental gush. Live a lover’s life, circumspect and exemplary, a life Jesus will be proud of…”

                                                                    Philippians 1:9-11 (Message)
