The Keys for Living were created to help you … and help you help others. The Keys are great for personal study and growth, small group studies, and for teaching and training purposes. Go deeper in your understanding and practical application of Biblical truth.

The Waiting Game

In the movie version of Snow White, the beautiful young woman sings what is longed for in every girl’s heart.

Some day my prince will come,
Some day I’ll find my love,
And how thrilling that moment will be,
When the prince of my dreams comes to me . . . .

How does she find the love of her life? And how does a prince of a man find his love? In the fairy tale, it’s a waiting game for both of them. If you are playing the waiting game right now, be patient. Wait for God’s choice of a date who—by God’s design—might become your mate.

What Is God’s Purpose for Dating?

Nowhere in the Bible does God say that we—His carefully planned creations—are to live our lives isolated from one another. In fact, after creating Adam, the Lord God said,

“It is not good for the man to be alone.”
Genesis 2:18

Then God created Eve for Adam to marry. How do you know if you have found the right person to date? And what’s more, how do you become the right person to date? You might find it helpful to know some of the beneficial opportunities in dating.

Through dating, you have the opportunity . . .

1) to learn how to communicate with the opposite sex,

2) to help define what traits you desire in a future mate,

3) to come into contact with potential marriage partners, and

4) to grow socially, emotionally and spiritually.
