Song of Solomon 8:6 says 'Set me as a seal upon thine heart,
as a seal upon thine arm: for love is strong as death;
jealousy is cruel as the grave: the coals thereof are coals of fire,
which hath a most vehement flame'
Think about this for a moment...
You know, when its time for a person to die,
there is nothing that person can do to escape it.
There is no opinion that death asks from him or her.
No negotiations at all.
Death has no respect for anyone's dignity
or whatever status or position a person holds.
Now, the bible says "...Love is as Strong as Death..."
Same non-negotiable force death comes with.
That's how strong this 'Love' is.
Once He gets a hold of you, He won't let go.

My conclusion after many years of marriage counseling is that there are five emotional love languages — five ways that people speak and understand emotional love.
Words of affirmation
One way to express love emotionally is to use words that build up. Solomon, author of ancient Hebrew Wisdom Literature, wrote, "The tongue has the power of life and death" (Proverbs 18:21, NIV). Many couples have never learned the tremendous power of verbally affirming each other.
Verbal compliments, or words of appreciation, are powerful communicators of love. They are best expressed in simple, straightforward statements of affirmation, such as:
"You look sharp in that suit."
"Do you ever look incredible in that dress! Wow!"
"I really like how you're always on time to pick me up at work."
"You can always make me laugh."
Words of affirmation are one of the five basic love languages. Within that language, however, there are many dialects. All of the di…
We must fully comprehend what is our ultimate purpose in living our lives. And as a follower of Jesus Christ, our ultimate purpose is to glorify and honor Him in all that we are and in all that we do, and that includes how we deal our relationship with others.
In a relationship, it is essential to know that your partner should draw you closer to God, and not drag you in certain situations that a Christian should never be in. God gave you that person so both of you can serve and glorify Jesus instead of just letting you compromise and pull you away from your faith.
So this leads us to the question: should Christians kiss before marriage? The Bible says, “Everything is permissible for me, but not everything is beneficial.” (1 Corinthians 6:12) The standards of the world may permit you to cross intimate boundaries with your partner, but as Christians, we should know better that this doesn’t apply to what God has called us to be. Sexual intimacy is only permitted by God in married couple…
