"Love" Until Morning

Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: People throw the word love around a lot, but they don’t always know what it means.

Man 1: Hey, I’d love to get together sometime.

Woman: Oh, I love this new song!

Man 2: Doughnut? I love doughnuts!”

Nancy: In Proverbs 7 we read about a woman who uses the word love very loosely.

Proverbs 7 Woman: "Come, let us take our fill of love till morning; let us delight ourselves with love."

Nancy: She’s saying this in the context of luring a young man to her bedroom, and her words show that she doesn’t understand what she’s talking about. True love is about giving rather than taking.

Proverbs 7 Woman: "Let us take our fill of love."

Nancy: She wants immediate gratification and doesn’t care that the delights of this forbidden fruit won’t last.

Proverbs 7 Woman: "Our fill of love till morning."

Nancy: Love is about commitment. It’s about seeking the best interest of others. It’s about giving rather than taking.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
