What are you obsessed with right now? Is it your favorite television show? A certain fashion trend? A band? A sport you play?
We use the word obsessed a lot. Anything we really enjoy can become our obsession-of-the-moment, and dating definitely falls into that category.
For some of us, we’re obsessed with a certain guy or girl we’d like to go out with. Or, we’re obsessed with the person we are currently dating—wanting to spend every minute with them. Or for a huge number of us, we don’t have a crush, but we are obsessed with the idea of dating—we wish we had someone to text with all day and night.
No matter what your current relationship status, chances are you spend a lot of time thinking about, talking about, and dreaming about dating. And believe it or not, the Bible has a lot to say about it as well.
During the months of October and November, New Church Youth will be taking a look at what the Bible has to say about dating during our series, “Obsessed.” We’ll look at three key passages from Scripture that give us some clues on how to enjoy the crazy world of dating without losing our minds.
