Last night at Village, John gave a sweet talk on dating! John told us that we don't have to rush into dating just to be "like everyone else," that it's better to take our time and do it right. He talked about the worldly perspective on dating and contrasted that with the Godly perspective. For example, our focus in dating shouldn't be what we can *get* from the other person-God has shown us in Jesus that the goal of our lives (and dating!) is about *giving* to others!
Here's what you said about our Village night on Dating:
- "I really liked John's talk, it made me rethink my views about dating. I've dated people for the wrong reasons before...now I'll really think about it before I date someone again."
- "The talks and activities really explained dating from a view that I've never seen. I understand more now!"
- "The talk recognized the difficulties facing teens today, thx for that."
- "It was a good perspective on dating, good to know that it's okay to wait."
