“Love” Until Morning by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 02/17/12

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: People throw the word lovearound a lot, but they don’t always know what it means.

“Hey, I’d love to get together sometime.”

“Oh, I love this new song!”

“Doughnut? I love doughnuts!”

Nancy: In Proverbs 7 we read about a woman who uses the wordlove very loosely.

“Come, let us take our fill of love till morning; let us delight ourselves with love.”

Nancy: She’s saying this in the context of luring a young man to her bedroom, and her words show that she doesn’t understand what she’s talking about. True love is about giving rather than taking.

”Let us take our fill of love.”

Nancy: She wants immediate gratification and doesn’t care that the delights of this forbidden fruit won’t last.

“our fill of love till morning.”

Nancy: Love is about commitment. It’s about seeking the best interest of others. It’s about giving rather than taking.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “I think of the love of God as a great river, pouring through us even as the waters pour through our ravine at floodtime. Nothing can keep this love from pouring through us, except of course our own blocking of the river. Do you sometimes feel that you have got to the end of your love for someone who refuses and repulses you? Such a thought is folly, for one cannot come to the end of what one has not got. We have no store of love at all. We are not jugs, we are riverbeds.” – Amy Carmichael

Verse of the Day

And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord. — Ephesians 6:4 (NKJV)
