Two interesting pieces of scripture crossed paths this week- the parable of the talents and the Song of Songs. And it made me think….
Within marriage, sex is a blessing, a gift.
In Song of Songs, the two main characters are definitely physically attracted to each other and are enjoying the physical side of their relationship.
In the parable of the talents we learn that it is wrong to take a gift from God and not utilize it.
Our sexuality is a great and pleasurable gift. But how often is it ‘buried’ under so many other things. We are too busy, tired, frustrated, mad etc.
In Song of Songs our ‘Beloved’ guards our rest and tells others not to wake his/her Beloved. Do you guard your spouses rest and make sure he/she is not overworked?
Do you guard your rest and make sure you are refreshed and able to enjoy the good gifts God has given you?
In Song of Songs we also read that we are to take care of the little foxes before they ruin the vineyard. Are you taking care of the little things before they get big and ruin your relationship?
Just some thoughts…
God gives us so much, and wants us to be good stewards of it.
How good a steward are you being of this wonderful gift?
