Two Great Articles on Dating:

Marriage is Not Ultimate: “We must all abandon the selfish temptation to only marry girls more dazzling than models and men more dashing than Prince Charming. That’s an illusion, anyway. But Jesus is real and infinitely more satisfying. He is ours, and we are his. Rest in that truth.”

He is Jesus’ definition of a great man: one who honors mother and father, is filled with the Holy Spirit, humbly leads others to Jesus Christ, evangelizes lost people, obeys God’s call on his life, avoids adolescence, and spends his time not avoiding but getting ready to take on more responsibility.”
