Fam, physical boundaries are important in dating… BUT how do we establish them without feeling like we are just following rules we’ve been told? It’s SO important to set physical boundaries in dating that align with the conviction of the Holy Spirit. A conviction that is personal TO US. Our guests on the HOD podcast, Tori and Chad Masters, have experienced did some things well when it comes to boundaries and then they also did some things they wish they’d done differently (relatable right?!). Their hope is for others to learn from their experiences and to make decisions about physical boundaries out of a posture of true Godly conviction and not legalism. This means making decisions about physical boundaries that bring us closer to God and that honor Him instead of trying to get as close to a line as possible.
Love is patient. This is the first description of love found in Corinthians. If you’re constantly crossing boundaries, is that being patient? NO! While, YES, we are human and we’re going to make mistakes, our goal should always be to glorify God in every area of our lives, including dating relationships.
Chad and Tori experienced this too! They were in a committed relationship that was likely going to lead to marriage. In dating, they were often getting close to the line, and although they didn’t have sex, it still impacted their relationship in a powerful, and rather negative way. They realized that if they were willing to put their sexual desires above their partner's relationship with God, then they would be doing THE SAME THING IN MARRIAGE!!
Here's a GREAT and new way to think about boundaries. Boundaries aren’t a jail cell, they’re a way to protect us. In dating, we have to get good at practicing self-discipline and selflessness. Don’t flirt with temptation!! You can even joke about it! OF COURSE you both want to connect physically (that's NATURAL and a good desire). Let it be something you both are excited about in marriage!
