I’m sure you’ve heard warnings agains sexual promiscuity and impurity from many people, including God. At least, I hope you have. But why is this kind of behavior bad?
Because, by engaging in sexual activity with someone when it is outside of marriage, you are defiling an act that God reserved for a specific setting. You are subjecting your body and your mind to something that you are not ready for yet mentally or spiritually. And you are connecting yourself FOR LIFE to the person that you do this with. These are just a few reasons, mind you. And being emotionally promiscuous is wrong, for all the same reasons, and more.
Wait. Huh? What’s emotional promiscuity? How can you be promiscuous with feelings? What in the world am I talking about?
Emotional promiscuity is letting someone in emotionally when you are not mentally or spiritually prepared (sound familiar?). This can include things like dating at a young age when you are not prepared for marriage, disclosing personal issues to someone you don’t know personally online, and treating friends as “more than friends” when you are not dating or shouldn’t be.
Why, specifically are these bad? What can we do to keep ourselves from feeling like these things are okay, or even a necessity? It is very important to know what constitutes as emotional promiscuity, and even more important to know how to guard your heart against it and put that knowledge into action.
I will post part 2 tomorrow night. I plan to do a post on Emotional Promiscuity every day until Friday, so keep checking for more!
Not only in my own life, but in women of all ages, the want for a romantic or emotionally intimate relationship on this earth. And we don’t just want it, we really want it. Some of us desire it more than anything, to the point that it makes us upset or sad when God doesn’t fulfill our hopes and prayers for relationship to come along.
But what are we really hoping for?
We want an ideal relationship. The perfect husband. Yes, of course, the perfect husband with faults (because no one is perfect, after all). But the most ideal guy we can think of. Sometimes we want this ideal guy so badly, we start to see him in almost ANY guy! I know that sometimes I start to think I am fond of a guy just because I think he is fond of me… :b But let me tell you something very important. THIS GUY DOESN’T EXIST.
Yes, God is preparing you for the love of a lifetime, and he knows you deserve the best. But, more often than not, the love of a lifetime isn’t with a man. Not a HU-man anyway. And the best can’t always be given by humans, either.
My fellow followers of God…. STOP SEARCHING FOR LOVE HERE ON EARTH!!!
Even if you are looking for a relationship, stop looking for one that is romantic or emotional. Start looking for a FRIENDSHIP, first and foremost. God will take it from there.
“Why are you looking for love?
Why are you still searching as if I’m not enough?”
