How to Date With Holiness, Honor, and Humility

Honor

Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other (Romans 12:10).

So what happens if two people differ in what they believe is most helpful and pure? This could be regarding physical boundaries, theological beliefs, or other life issues.

I think a great question to ask ourselves is, “How would I want to be treated?” The love of Christ compels us to no longer live for ourselves, but for him who died for us. How we honor the people around us, especially in dating, will reveal if we are responding to Jesus’ love as demonstrated through the gospel of grace.

How can we best honor the person we are dating? Honor their time, their commitments, their talents, their opinions, their comfort levels, their other relationships, and their walk with God. Honoring a person involves seeking out what speaks love to them, what builds them up in the Lord, or perhaps discovering ways to serve them. It also means being honest with them by speaking the truth in love, especially regarding physical and emotional boundaries.

Really, we should be honoring every person, not just the person we are dating. Anyone, single or dating, can start practicing genuine affection and familial love right now.
