Dawn Eden on words to love by


For someone very dear to me who probably won't read this...and to anyone else who does read it, these are very wise words from Dawn Eden's blog:

Words to Love By

I have come to realize that, when I am on a date, one of the most appealing things that a man can possibly do is protect my chastity. It's a sign not only of the highest respect, but also of great personal strength, as in Proverbs 16:32: "[He that is] slow to anger [is] better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city."

These words that I just discovered on the Americans on Call Web site sum things up beautifully:

  • Female sexuality is one of the most powerful forces in this world (the only one God uses to create life).
  • It is a privilege that a man must earn by promising his life to her.
  • THERE IS NOT ONE WOMAN IN THIS WORLD WHO DESERVES ANYTHING LESS THAN EVERYTHING A MAN HAS TO GIVE.
  • She has lost something if she does not demand a commitment first.
  • The measure of a man is how much he willingly gives of himself. (Our troops are an example of that.) A good man pays this price willingly, by putting a ring on her finger first--whether she demands it or not.
  • Every day is a new opportunity to live up to this ideal.


If your best defense of a sinful situation (definition = pulling you away from God and/or you know it's not compatible with scripture) is that he's (or she's) a nice person, ask yourself if a nice person would put you in that situation.
