Once we removed the Bible as the basis and/or standard of our conduct, we were left with the shifting sands of man's own wisdom. Senate prayer when he said, "...unless we stand for something, we shall fall for anything." As a result, our young people of today embrace a worldview that is more secular than biblical and more me-centered than God-centered.
In the process, we've lost our True North (God's Truth). This equates to a philosophy of life that looks to oneself or the "norms" of society to define what is acceptable and what is not-acceptable.
Yet, within this goal is the mutual objective: to get to know each other as a brother and sister in Christ in a way that honors God.
While every dating relationship or "courtship" may not end up in marriage, it should result in growing closer to God and building each other up in the Lord.
In that case, both the mother and daughter should look to pull in a man that can speak into the assessment of the young male suitor.
I recently shared with my older children that most marriages are defiled before the man or woman have a chance to say, "I do." In one prominent online study on dating, over 80% of the respondents indicated that they would consent to sex prior to marriage.
This same study revealed that most couples would move in together prior to their wedding day.
Unfortunately, it appears to be a developing pattern with young adults to have an aversion toward any type of boundaries within their relationships. I've seen first-hand the fallout when young adults lack boundaries in their relationships.
Sadly, the young ladies of today ride an emotional roller-coaster around the absence of any defined expectations when it comes to the young men in their lives.
