“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 never felt such an entire emptiness of self-love, or any regard to any private, selfish interest of my own. It seemed to me, that I had entirely done with myself. I felt that the opinions of the world concerning me were nothing, and that I had no more to do with any outward interest of my own, than with that of a person whom I never saw. The glory of God seemed to be all, and in all, and to swallow up every wish and desire of my heart” – Sarah Edwards, wife of Jonathan Edwards
