I personally make a big distinction between dating and courtship. Dating can callous your heart and severely detract your relationship with Jesus Christ. The difference between dating and courtship is motive and heart condition.
You date for FUN. You court for COMMITMENT.
In some cultures, people generally fear commitment, so they date. Insecure people hop from one dating relationship to another. They break up with one boyfriend and get with another. Dating is for immature people. Courtship is for those who have a mature heart-seeking commitment. IF YOU ARE NOT MATURE ENOUGH TO GET MARRIED, YOU DON’T NEED TO FOOL AROUND WITH DATING.
While you are busy reading this article, try mo rin makinig sa episode namin:
You should only pursue someone if:
* You’re a man.
* You’re prepared for the potential relationship to end in marriage.
* Anything else will be a general waste of time. Dating for “fun” always ends up hurting someone’s heart.
For the woman to pursue is unbiblical. IT’S THE MAN’S JOB TO PURSUE THE WOMAN. Courtship includes dating, but dating is not courtship.
Keep in mind: Don’t race to buy a bicycle when God wants to give you a Mercedes.
