Christian youth lesson on dating
You often won't know what you have, let alone need, in your life until you clear the mental and emotional room to experience the here and now. It's more and more difficult to fall in love because your "faller" gets broken.
We don't have to stay buried under the past or cycles of mistakes, even though it may seem insurmountable. You have to keep your mental and emotional house clean and in order. We've all had relationships that didn't work out for one reason or another.
Understanding only comes when you stand under a real desire to know, love, and comprehend the other person, embracing the uniqueness of who they are. Healthy Relationships Require Emotional and Spiritual Freedom.
Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus.
Philippians 2:3-5 When we talk to kids about dating, we can help them set the biblical standard of considering another person’s interest above themselves, and that love means wanting the very best for that person.

OBJECTIVE: To understand that dating leads to marriage (a relationship that mirrors Christ’s love for us), so we should seek God’s guidance before starting a relationship.
