God, Love, Sex- Part 2
WEEK 2- How To Avoid The Spring Fling?
THE BEST QUESTION EVER FOR RELATIONSHIPS
What Is The WISEST Thing To do
In light of my past experience, my present circumstance & my future hopes & dreams.
There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven… Ecclesiastes 3:1
1) YOU WILL HAVE A SEASON OF PREPARATION.
See! The winter is past; the rains are over and gone. Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land. Song 2:11-12
Winter is the season of preparation.
Don’t rush into spring prematurely.
2) YOU MAY HAVE A SEASON OF PERFECTION.
Listen! My lover! Look! Here he comes, leaping across the mountains, bounding over the hills. My lover is like a gazelle or a young stag. Look! There he stands behind our wall, gazing through the windows, peering through the lattice. My lover spoke and said to me, "Arise, my darling, my beautiful one, and come with me. Song 2:8-10
During this season, limit: your TIME, TALK & TOUCH
3) YOU WILL HAVE A SEASON OF DISCOVERY.
My dove in the clefts of the rock, in the hiding places on the mountainside, show me your face, let me hear your voice; for your voice is sweet, and your face is lovely. Song 2:14
TALK ABOUT YOUR: PAST & FUTURE
KEY THOUGHT: IN ALL SEASONS, PROTECT YOUR PURITY.
Catch for us the foxes, the little foxes that ruin the vineyards, our vineyards that are in bloom. Song 2:15

1. LET THE TWO BECOME THREE. (God into the picture)
2. INFORM OTHERS OF YOUR LIMITS.
3. KEEP EVERYTHING BUTTONED AND ZIPPED.
4. AVOID SWAPPING SPIT.
But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality... Ephesians 5:3
