"Dating" is viewed as more casual and usually wrapped up in a simple series of romantic encounters (both emotional and physical).Before we get into this though, we've gotta throw out the reminder that if your parents have told you that they do not want you to date yet, then you must respect their rules.The world is constantly sending a message of "try before you buy" when it comes to dating.
Even very well-meaning, God-loving Christian couples can fall into the trap of selfishness when it comes to relationships.
When you've committed to another person in a romantic relationship, remember to keep God as the most important Person in your life (Matthew ).
You should never place anything or anyone over God because that is considered the sin of idolatry (Galatians ; Colossians 3:5)—even if you mean very well and love the person unconditionally.
It is not only a sin against God, but it is a sin against our own bodies (1 Corinthians ).
Respect yourself and the one you love by honoring them the way God intends us to honor others (Romans 12:9-10).
