I adjure you, O daughters of Jerusalem, that you not stir up or awaken love until it pleases. Song of Solomon 8:4.
I do not know if it is our generation or just me but people now adays do not have regard for that principle/scripture.
Do not awaken love, and love, for me, does not involve only the romantic love. It is venturing friendships you have no intention of keeping. It’s the flirting you are flirting with that innocent girl or guy. It’s the business you are not ready to put your all in.
A reminiscing today brought this thought to mind. It brought friendships that were so promising and just fell along the line and the only logical reason I could give was, they were not ready for the love they were awakening.
A new year is approaching, do not be selfish . Do not awaken love when you are not ready.
During Christmas, do not overly become nice or do things that are likely to give impressions, and make your intentions clear when you do them.
Have yourself a merry little Christmas.
