True Love

Okay Guys, another topic of interest to most young people.

Definition of love:
Love is a precious gift, which we receive from Jesus. Pure and holy affection is not a feeling, but a principle.( Love is a principle!)

Those who are actuated by true love are neither unreasonable nor blind. (So, to those people who thought they've been blind in their love before. *ahem* Sorry to tell you, that wasn't TRUE LOVE to begin with!) Taught by the Holy Spirit, they love God supremely, and their neighbor as themselves.

We are all getting married eventually. Hopefully.
Let those who are contemplating marriage weigh every sentiment and watch every development of character in the one with whom they think to unite their life destiny. Let every step toward a marriage alliance be characterized by modesty, simplicity, sincerity, and an earnest purpose to please and honor God. Marriage affects the after life both in this world and in the world to come. A sincere Christian will make no plans that God cannot approve.

Seeking Counsel
If you are blessed with God-fearing parents, seek counsel of them. Open to them your hopes and plans, learn the lessons which their life experiences have taught, and you will be saved many a heartache. Above all, make Christ your counselor. Study His word with prayer.

Girls: What Type of Guy to choose
Under such guidance let a young woman accept as a life companion only one who possesses pure, manly traits of character, one who is diligent, aspiring, and honest, one who loves and fears God.

Guys: What Type of Girl to choose
Let a young man seek one to stand by his side who is fitted to bear her share of life's burdens, one whose influence will ennoble and refine him, and who will make him happy in her love.
