Three purposes of dating
The Bible gives us a picture that includes both spiritual and social functions to our relationships.
A myriad of verses we find the Scriptures speaking with clarity about the role relationships play in our lives.
Commitment and intentionality are inadvertently being discouraged by increased opportunities to go on group dates and see members of the opposite sex without pursuit.
Another reason people are choosing a life of singleness is because of the difficulty, confusion and frustration that comes with dating.
Understanding some of the purposes behind human relationships will go a long way in shaping our expectations.
