10 Bible Verses About Dating For Single Christians

Let the Bible be your support system.

Are you a Christian who is dating but wonder why it’s so hard to meet someone and fall in love?

It’s tough to be a single Christian looking for love online. Dating apps like Christian Mingle, Plenty of Fish, eHarmony, and Match.com try to simplify things, but going out on dates can still feel like a lonely and complicated process.

What does the Bible say or where can you find a verse to get advice about dating for single Christians?

We have all been stuck in a rut when it comes to dating and being single and not sure where to go next. Maybe you aren’t being challenged at work, and the days and weeks are dragging by.

Maybe you don’t have a good group of friends, so you turn to a dating app to meet new people. There is no one by your side to share in your successes and failures. Maybe you have started to fall behind in your workouts, and you are feeling self-conscious about gaining a little weight.

Or maybe you’re single. All of these other problems can sometimes be overlooked if you have a partner to share them with. Someone to take on half of your burdens, to lighten your load. And someone whose load you can lighten.

We all want someone there to console us when we need comfort, someone to motivate us to keep going when we feel we can’t take another step, and someone to celebrate us when we succeed.

When we are single and feeling lonely, we think the only way to experience this partnership is in a relationship. But if you turn to the bible there are quite a few verses urging you to turn to the Lord for comfort and peace.

In the Bible, Christians who are dating can learn that God is always by our side. Through prayer, faith, and acts of kindness, you will find yourself on a path to the lord.

It is hard to put yourself out there. When you are feeling all of the effects of loneliness and stress and fatigue, it becomes increasingly difficult to go out and look for the one.

Here are 10 encouraging Bible verses about Christians dating for singles.

1. Christians who are dating must first, look to the Lord.

“But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all …

What You Should Know Before Dating A Christian Woman, According To The Bible

It certainly won’t be easy.

There are two kinds of people in this world that can be pretty difficult to fall in love with: criminals and Christians. Weird combination right? I’m sure criminals being on that list makes perfect sense to you.

After all, they’re people who committed crimes. It seems like the only other person that could really understand why would be another criminal. But why Christians?

Christians aren’t bad people. They’re taught to be nice and to love everyone and they’re all about spreading God’s word.

That sounds like the perfect person to fall in love with. But the problem with falling for a Christian is while it might seem nice, it might actually be a lot of trouble.

I’m going to specifically talk about men falling for a Christian woman here.

If you happen to be a woman who’s fallen in love with a Christian woman, you’ve got a whole ‘nother battle ahead of you, so I’ll just stick to the men’s side. So what exactly is the problem here?

The idea of falling in love with a Christian woman is similar to when you think the popular girl likes you because she’s nice to you when she’s actually just nice to everyone. It’s not that you’re special to her, she’s just being herself.

The same principle applies to Christians as a whole and in this case, Christian women.

She’s just being nice because she’s supposed to be. That’s what the Bible teaches. Ever hear “love thy neighbor?” —​ Matthew 22:39

But of course, the heart wants what the heart wants, and I certainly won’t stop you from shooting your shot. But, before you fire away, there are a couple of things you need to know.

Specifically, three brutal truths about what it means to love a Christian woman.

1. You will never be the most important person in her life.

While in most relationships the two will always put each other first, in a Christian one it’s all about putting God first.

Quote: “You shall love Yahweh your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your might.” This means that no matter what you do, God will always be first in her heart. —​ Deuteronomy 6:5

Now before you try to get competitive with God, let me remind you that that’s not a bad thing. To her, putting God first is …

4 Bible Quotes To Help You Heal From An Emotionally Unavailable Man

God, help us to see that this man will not waste our time!

Everyone shares the fear of feeling a love so deeply for someone who is just incapable of reciprocating.

We’ve all had countless nightmares of losing the ones we love to circumstance and it hurts when you emotional unavailability gets in the way.

It’s a beautiful tragedy for a relationship to perish because one person is far more committed than the other.

No one wants their heartbroken because they have journeyed further in life than their partner. You feel so much, you have so much to give, but it just isn’t the right time.

Of course, this is a lot easier to identify from the outside of the relationship. When you have invested so much time, energy, and emotion into another person, you are far less likely to notice that they are not on the same page as you.

You have fantasized night after night about the possibility of a long future with this person. You don’t want to give that up! But you are sure to feel some signs of his emotional unavailability popping up here and there.

Maybe you have doubts about your partner’s sense of commitment. If you feel he’s incapable of taking the next steps into the crazy world of love, you should definitely take a moment to detach yourself from the tidal wave of emotion and look for the facts.

The Bible can be a helpful tool in these times. God has a very specific definition of love that we all abide by every day that we walk with faith. Applying your experiences to those outlined in scripture can be the defining factor for your relationship.

Before you put your man to the emotional unavailability test or try to fix the root cause, you’ll want to be really clear about your definition of love.

Where do you even begin? Love is such a boundless topic that it can feel absolutely impossible to start to define.

Luckily, there’s a quote about love that most people, Christian and non-Christian know that describes what relationships are supposed to be.

1. Love has certain traits.

1 Corinthians 13:4-8, (WEB) lays the groundwork for what commitment looks and feels like, according to scripture.

“Love is patient and is kind; love doesn’t envy. Love doesn’t brag, is not proud, doesn’t behave itself inappropriately,

3 Bible Quotes About Love & Commitment For Christians Ready For Marriage

When will God give you and your boo His grace?

Are you ready for marriage? Christians who are dating seriously approach love and commitment from a biblical worldview. It’s good to look to the Bible and verses about love to explore where you stand as a couple.

So many of us are fortunate enough to reach that point in a relationship where you can honestly ask yourself if this is the person you are supposed to spend the rest of your life. It can be the most exciting and scariest moment of the relationship.

You start to imagine a future with this person. You can’t think of a time where you wouldn’t want them to be right next to you, experiencing it all in real-time together. You think you might be ready to make a sacred commitment to this person and vow to be with them for the rest of your life.

Naturally, if your relationship has gotten to that point, you have likely been with this person for a while. At least long enough to have seen the good and bad sides of them, and to not care about their flaws or imperfections.

It goes without saying that you should love this person unconditionally before thinking about getting married. But there is no manual on the timeline of Christian relationships.

For questions regarding guidance, we turn back to the Bible for a helping hand. Scripture continuously upholds the limits of time in the matter of relevance to our walk through life. As we come to crossroads, the best thing we can do is pray hard and long and turn to the word of the Lord to help us choose the right plan.

Luckily, there are many verses in the Bible about marriage and the bond between man and woman.

So, if you are feeling those butterflies come up at the thought of you walking down the aisle in a white gown surrounded by all of your friends and family, make sure to run your relationship by these biblical standards.

This way you’ll know for certain that this is the right path that God has set for you and your partner. No two relationships look the exact same. There are no deadlines for two people to reach regarding their relationship milestones.

When you begin to question whether or not you should marry the person you have been dating, it is …

8 Bible Quotes On How To Resolve Conflict & Fight Fair When You’re A Christian

Court is in session.

How should Christians resolve conflict, between other Christians, with their spouse, such as filing for divorce, or when you feel you’ve been wronged? The Bible has several verses that talk about conflict resolution among believers, which is why people of faith typically try to avoid legalities when possible.

Taking someone to court is a practice that has been going on for as long as a legal system has existed. When someone is wronged, they want retribution. It’s gone on for so long that it’s practically become human instinct.

But the Bible says to be slow to anger. It’s hard to do when you feel that you’ve been done wrong, yet logic and reason prevail when it comes to resolving conflict among individuals who profess to be Christian.

“This you know, my beloved brethren But everyone must be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger; for the anger of man does not achieve the righteousness of God.” — James 1:19-20

If a person steals from us, we want compensation. If a person kills someone close to us, we expect them to go to jail or possibly even executed. There should always be consequences to poor decisions and bad acts, right?

While most of the human race may see it that way, the Bible sees things a little differently. In fact, it really leans more toward NOT taking people to court.

Trying to ‘get yours’ is contrary to the Bible when resolving conflicts.

“Be angry, and yet do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger…” — Ephesians 4:26

Since revenge belongs to God, it’s not good to seek it out on your own.

However, this isn’t to say that you can’t ever sue someone or get justice. There’s a time for that too. But overall, as one would expect, the Bible expects mercy and reasoning to prevail over lust for vengeance and payment.

So, when exactly can you use the law and when shouldn’t you?

1. There’s a process of resolving conflict.

“If your brother sins against you, go, show him his fault between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have gained back your brother. But if he doesn’t listen, take one or two more with you, that at the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established. If he refuses to listen

Your Daily Bible Verse, Proverbs 1:7 & Why Fear Is The Beginning Of Wisdom

How can a God of love want people to fear him?

The fear of Yahweh is the beginning of knowledge, but the foolish despise wisdom and instruction.” — Proverbs 1:7, (World English Bible)

I’m going to lay my truth right here on the line. I don’t want to love anyone that expects me to fear them. Words have all sorts of meaning and when taken out of context they can become distorted and misapplied.

What if fear, the way I understood it, was wrong? What if my idea of fear was nothing like the way it was meant to be in Proverbs 1:7?

Proverbs 1:7, NIV uses the word ‘God’ instead of ‘Yahweh’ and that in order to find wisdom, the starting point is fear. Yet, when Christ came to be the replacement for all I’ve done wrong on in this life, he says ‘not to fear, because he is with me?” Christ was Jewish. Proverbs is the Book of Wisdom written during the time of Solomon, a Jew.​

Jesus spoke about action, and karma is a form of action and reaction, too. The Torah does not use the word karma, but there are ‘if this, then that’ like statements. So perhaps, fear, action, and reaction were all interconnected in some way to help understand Proverbs 1:7.

As I started to study the connection between Judaism and Christianity, I came into an interesting word… What if fear was changed to the word ‘karma’ what if to have respect for the rules of life and the universe could be interchanged with this idea of fearing God, or Yahweh or light or love, Abba Father, however, God could be called.

There are times when Jesus himself called himself by other names: Teacher, the light, the way, the truth, and so it could be possible that this word Yahweh meant other things during Biblical times that the layperson studying scripture will not know unless he or she digs.

You can’t dismiss the Jewish faith and the roots of its beautiful culture when studying the Old Testament Christian Bible, and with that understanding, you see that light and darkness, the balance of logic and emotion demonstrates the power of love and fear when brought together as one in a lifestyle.

Here are some reasons why Proverbs 1:7 says fear is the beginning of knowledge, according to the Bible.

What Is A Tithe And How Much To Give, According To The Bible

Tithe is a small word that holds big meaning in the Bible

When was the last time you heard the word ‘tithe?’ Odds are, it doesn’t come up in your daily conversations all that often.

Just because the word may not be used daily doesn’t mean tithing holds little significance in the Christian community. In fact, the term ‘tithe’ is a concept that is sacred in the Holy Bible.

So, what is a tithe anyway and what does tithing mean, and is it Biblical?

A ‘tithe’ is defined as the equivalent of a tenth. In the Bible, starting in the Old Testament, a tithe is when a person gives ten percent of their earnings, food, crops, or possessions to others. This could be seen as a sacrifice, gesture, or a good deed among God.

In the Old Testament, Abraham and Jacob offered a tithe to God in Genesis 14.

Genesis 14:19-20: “And he blessed him and said, “Blessed be Abram by God Most High, Possessor of Heaven and Earth; and blessed be God Most High, who has delivered your enemies into your hand!” And Abram gave him a tenth of everything.”

It seems a little crazy to think about giving away or tithing ten percent of your annual income, right?

Some say that Tithing is Biblical but it’s not necessarily Christian. Tithing was something that took place under Mosaic Law.

From a modern Christian standpoint, follows of Jesus are to be generous and to give. Jesus is the most generous and giving person on Earth and in Heaven. Christians believe that he sacrificed his perfect life in Heaven to come and save everyone from their sins on Earth. When you think it from that standpoint, ten percent of your earnings may seem insignificant in comparison.

Because of Jesus and his compassionate nature, Christians support being generous and giving to the less fortunate; whether that be through volunteer work, donating food to local shelters, or being an active member in the Christian community, any form of generosity is essential.

So, tithing can be shown in different ways, even if Christians don’t feel obligated to give money. In the Old Testament, giving away bread and wine was considered a huge gesture.

Today, tithe can be proven in other ways besides giving away money and possessions. Giving away ten percent of your time to helping others and making the world a better place …
