Thoughts “Without the love of God in us, we cannot truly love another person as He intended to us to love. That’s why it is so important for us to work on our relationship with God before we attempt to start a relationship with someone else.” (Joshua Harris)

What is Smart Love? Apostle Paul describes it in Philippians 1:9-10, Love abounds in Knowledge and Insights. I used to read Joshua Harris’ Book “I kissed Dating Goodbye” I got an explanation about what Apostle Paul means by the verses. ” We need to learn to love appropriately, we need to use our heads and test our feelings so that our love is sincere and intelligent, not a sentimental gush which allowing the emotions to dictate the course of a dating relationship. Instead of acting on what we know is right, we let our feelings carry us away.” To truly love someone with Smart Love, we need to use our heads as well as our hearts. I begun to like the book. I got so many lessons about relationships, about life and all is biblical. And this I pray, that my love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and insight and that I would not let my heart control my head; that ye may prove things that excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offense till the day of Christ. (Phil. 1:9-10) If we want God’s best in our relationships we must be willing to play by his rules.
