Song of Solomon 2:3. . .”As the apple tree among the trees of the wood so is my beloved among the sons. I sat down under his shadow with great delight and his fruit was sweet to my taste.”
Today’s verse comes from the Song of Solomon. Isn’t it ironic the wisest man in the bible had over a 1000 women? Although his one love was a Shulamite woman in this one book. This book is not only about Solomon’s soul mate, it’s about God’s love for His people, the Church
Why do so many people get divorced? Is it because marriage and family values is really on the decline? Statistically speaking, with overpopulation there may be as many successful marriages and families as there always were. Possibly more.
Many people admit they rushed into marriage before they got to know themselves and what they really want out of life. Your spouse is your help mate. Therefore if you don’t know what you want in life, it stands to reason you won’t know what you are looking for in a partner.
Then there are people who simply don’t want to get married. They just don’t want to be alone. Or they want to have children and the traditional family seems the right way to do it.
Many people in today’s generation say they don’t want to get married. That’s not to say they won’t since you don’t always control falling in love with someone. I’m pretty sure that even if they purpose not to get married, they have no intention of committing to a life of celibacy.
Nothing is predestined in life. The Bible doesn’t encourage marriage outside of procreation. Life’s most important relationship is with the Creator of the universe, or our true soul mate. It’s possible to be so fulfilled by divine intimacy that we don’t look for someone else on earth to complete us.
Jesus and Paul both said it is better to not marry than get divorce. It is also better to marry than to burn with passion and sleep around. Being unmarried means not having to be burdened by the cares of the world.
True love is hard to find outside of the divine fellowship. For those that believe in the law of attraction, we attract what we really want.
Today’s bible verse is Song of Solomon 2:3 and compares love to finding an apple tree in a grove. Since the feminine is the most spiritually sensitive, “she” probably draws the masculine into the relationship. So much for the man leading since he only wears the pants she tells him to wear.
The man leads by doing what his lady intuitively leads him to do because they are spiritually joined together by God long before they ever walk an aisle, or have sex for that matter. There are other ways to be naked with someone besides physically. More on that in another blog post someday.
