Some singles don’t bother to look for a spouse, believing God will bring the person to them, while others are forever on a search for one, fearing they may miss him or her.
Is it possible we are being too picky, looking for the fairy-tale prince or princess, and by doing so, limiting the possibilities of what God may know is best for us and which we have not yet considered?Are we not being picky enough, forgetting that God calls all Christians to marry only other Christians (2 Corinthians ), or are we considering someone who is stuck in a serious, life-altering sin that could endanger the marriage?It is wise to plan a double date, so that a close friend can offer his or her opinion on this (let’s face it) complete stranger.Listen to your instincts and get away fast if you ever feel you are in any danger.God uses our choices, other people, and sometimes even modern technology, to bring about marriages.
Before a Christian single considers any of the “newer” methods of finding a spouse like using a Christian dating service, it’s helpful to consider whether we may be engaging in any self-defeating behavior.
The result of a deception can be humorous, but it may also be deadly.
It’s a good idea to never answer any communication from someone from another country, unless you are able to conduct an extensive background check on him or her.
Internet dating is currently the most popular alternative way to meet singles.
There are several Christian dating services as well as secular services that allow users to limit their searches to Christians.
Some people prefer to meet their spouse through friends, family, or in a chance meeting out in the world, and many do just that.
