We also reviewed some modern ways of courtship and all about dating and choosing lifetime partners. We also tackled the engagement recess and responsibilities of the engaged couples. The third lesson was all about families - the social and cultural changes, family composition, roles and responsibilities and Filipino values that seem to dwindle through time and we must strive to keep alive. Reflection: I learned a lot about these things, and how to handle myself as a teen, how I should patiently wait for the right time, and how to choose my lifetime partner when the time comes.
Since I'm still in high school, most feelings come as puppy love and infatuation, and also I should prioritize my studies first because I must first get a Job ND quern a lot of money before I start engaging in my love lifeboats I don't want to be like other people who start families even though they didn't finish schooling yet and they don't have a budget. I also learned about things I should always bear in mind when someday I start my own family and I should teach my children the same values my parents, grandparents and ancestors passed down from generation to generation. Bible says about...
IV - John What the 1) Friendship - In the Bible, one of the most common stories about friendship is that of David and Jonathan. Although Jonathans father, King Saul, wanted to murder David, Jonathan still cared for him, loved him and treated him like a brother. Verses about Friendship; Proverbs 18:24; A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there Is a friend who sticks closer than a brother. Proverbs 27:5-6; Better is open rebuke than hidden Ecclesiastic 4:9; Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: If one falls down, his friend can help him up.
But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up! 2) Courtship - Isaac and Rebirth's story is one of the most loved in the Bible. It reminds us that God knows what's best for us, and he has someone prepared. We just have to trust his will because he has the perfect timing. It also warns us not to choose partners outside our faith, because unbelievers can lead us astray. Verses about Courtship John 1 5:12; - This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. Corinthians 6:14-15; Do not be bound together with unbelievers; for what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship has light with darkness? Or what harmony has Christ with Belief, or what has a believer in common with an unbeliever? John 1 5:9; - As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: intention ye in my love. 3) Engagement - Engagement is important. It shows your seriousness in wanting to marry your partner. The Bible says the same. It also talks about God's love for us and how he will "betroth" us in righteousness, wise Judgment, lopsidedness and mercies.
It also reminds us that we should agree with each other and love each other, for that, as the Bible says, is the bond of preferences. Verses about Engagement Hoses 2:19-20 - And I will betroth thee unto me for ever; yea, I will betroth thee unto me in righteousness, and in Judgment, and in lopsidedness, and in mercies. Amos 3:3 - Can two walk together, except they be agreed? Colombians 3:14 - And above all these things [put on] charity, which is the bond of preferences. 4) Marriage - The Bible has a lot to say about marriage.
I only chose a few verses but these are very long because I love the point the writers are trying to make. Marriage is a sacred thing. A promise and a commitment for a lifetime. But some people these days aren't taking marriage seriously. Read what the Bible says Verses about Marriage Matthew 19:4-6; "Haven't you read," he replied, "that at the beginning the Creator made them male and female,' and said, 'For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh'? So they separate. Ephesians 5:22-33; Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything. Husbands, love your wives, Just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the gashing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless.
In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. After all, no one ever hated his own body, but he feeds and cares for it, Just as Christ does the church-- for we are members of his body. "For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh. " This is a profound mystery--but I am talking about Christ and the church. However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.
Hebrews 13:4-7; Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will Judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral. Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you. " So we say with confidence, "The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me? " Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you. Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith.
