Christian application for dating my daughter
If discipleship — or “dating” your daughter’s boyfriend — sounds like it might be a more effective method than what you’ve tried (or intended to try), here are six pieces of counsel for engaging young men interested in your little girl.
I think most men wait for the suitor to come knocking, asking for the daughter’s hand in marriage. There are too many blessings to be had before she’s a fiancée.
Creative minds coming from different areas such as photography, art, design, fashion, music or gastronomy were challenged to answer very fast to 100 questions.
We created a web site where everyone could gather the interviews of the creative minds and at the same time could expose themselves to the #100questionchallenge.
Completely apart from Isaac, Abraham sends another guy off to find his son a wife.
Some code words and a camel ride later, Isaac and Rebekah are tented and covenanted in love.
Let your first couple conversations be about him, and not her. Study his relationships with his friends and family.It actually makes for a dangerous situation because God means for spiritual headship and leadership to be a more seamless handoff, not this disjointed affair that leaves the young woman spiritually and emotionally uncovered from age fifteen until her wedding day.We’ve relegated dads to a last-minute interview before engagement when God meant for them to be active, available agents of wisdom and safekeeping. Foolish dads relish the gun-bearing, tough-guy role. The moment is a mountain to overcome in almost any relationship, but I believe it’s a mountain we, as Christians, can capture for the good of the daughter, the suitor, and the father.But as good as ideal sounds, it’s hard to find that picture in the Bible, and ultimately it’s far too simple for most not-yet-married realities anyways. What if she’s still single at 25, 30, maybe even 40?
At the same time, remember that even with the “good guy” a résumé can’t replace some regular contact.
