The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD, and He delights in his way.
(Ps. 37:23 NKJV)
It may sound strange to your children, but God wants to be involved in their relationships, especially dating. He wants to show them how to dress, what to say, and whom to date.

It isn't a sin to date, but it is a sin to get into a relationship without involving God. Before your children can learn to establish a relationship with other people, they must have a good relationship with Him.

Encourage your children to spend time with the Lord by reading and studying the Bible daily. As they develop a relationship with God and allow Him to direct them, He will lead them to their future mates.

How can God be interested in dating? In Genesis 2:18 He said that it was not good for Adam to be alone. Did Adam search for a wife? No. God brought Eve to him.

Tell your teenagers to stop wasting their time by looking for someone on their own. God knows their likes and dislikes. By their having a good, solid relationship with Him, He will speak to their hearts not only about dating but also about their education, friendships, and other areas that are important to them. 1

Make Your Day Count
Talk with your children about dating and getting emotionally involved with someone of the opposite sex. Pray and encourage your children to pray about involving God in all of their relationships, especially dating.
