[The Glory Unveiled]
Oh, let me warn you, sisters in Jerusalem:Don’t excite love, don’t stir it up,until the time is ripe—and you’re ready. ( Song of Songs 8:3 )
Love is always first like a sleeping dog. It’s a living thing with actual traits of living things. And like all living things, in order to sustain its life and growth, it must be nurtured and nourished. If it is abandoned, it does not only die but it rots and stinks. The stench from an awoken love, left unattended to is more destructive than physical weapons of mass destruction. And for this reason, the wise king Solomon warns us not to excite, arouse or stir it up until the right time; when we’re ready, because ones it is awaken, like a sleeping dog, you can’t put it back to sleep. Love has the tendency to grow whether it is carefully nourished or not. The reality is, you’ll always reap what you invest into love, whether the good or the bad. In our time and day, due to the influence of social media, people are almost always pressured to explore love even when they are not ready. Many are coerced, others are convinced by the tokens of affection given them by meticulously voracious ‘partners’. The result; some have had love exploded to their faces, leaving them blind to realities. My dear, if you’re not ready, you’re not ready. Don’t wait for the consequences to scream reality into you. Let us take the warnings of the man who had experimented with all the realities of life more than any other person seriously.
Prayer_Bead: Father Lord, Lover of my soul and sustainer of my life, let the unfruitful desires of my heart drown in the comfort of your word. Help me not to arouse love before the desired time.
