It’s Friday, and here is this week’s most clicked link:

Concubines? Really?  Yes.  If you don’t know much about the word, the article will make a good connection between what went on in ancient times and what goes on now.  A few comments about sex.

Casual – Sex means nothing to a lot of people.  This is sad, considering how beautiful sex really can be when there is the trust and security of a solid marriage context.

Uncommitted – I loved the part of this that talks about the public nature of marriage.  Marriage is the proclamation of commitment, the celebration of an intentional decision that two people will spend the rest of their lives together.

Damage – It does damage to people to be used sexually.  There is good reason that Paul says all other sins are outside a body, but sexual sin is sin against the body.  It’s damaging.  Sexual sin takes away something that can’t be gained back.  The Lord Jesus is mighty to save and forgive, but consequences can’t be undone.

All this to say:  Married folks spend time and energy to keep your marriages alive and loving.  Single folks look for that person who will commit to you – for the rest of your life.

Have a great Friday!
