A PI Girl recently asked what the difference is between dating and courtship.Not only are you saving yourself from most heartache, but you are keeping yourself pure as well.My friend put it this way, ‘If you go around kissing other people, then you are kissing someone else’s husband.’ She worded it well and definitely knows that God should be the head of a relationship, not personal gain.” God is a God of order, and doesn’t want you to get your heart broken.If a man loves you for you (after building that solid friendship on Jesus and His Word), then you have laid the relationship on a firm foundation.Then, once you realize you want to take the relationship from friendship to a relationship leading into marriage, he can lead you to that place.
