SONG OF SONGS

SONG OF SOLOMON

OBSERVATION: THE PHRASE SONG OF SONGS INDICATES THE GREATEST

OF SONGS. SOME SCHOLARS CREDIT SOLOMON FOR THE WRITING AND SOME DO NOT. THE GENERAL THEME IS A LOVE AND ADORATION BETWEEN MALE AND FEMALE. IT EXPRESSES LOVE AND ADORATION

TOWARD THE FEMALE. MOST OF THE MATERIAL IS METAPHORIC (APPLIED RESEMBLANCE).

INTERPRETATION: (SONG OF SONGS-SOLOMON, 8:7, NKJV) MANY WATERS CANNOT QUENCH LOVE, NOR CAN THE FLOODS DROWN IT. IF A MAN

WOULD GIVE FOR LOVE ALL OF THE WEALTH OF HIS HOUSE, IT WOULD BE

UTTERLY DESPISED. (CONTEMPORARY ENGLISH VERSION) LOVE CANNOT BE DROWNED BY OCEANS OR FLOODS; IT CANNOT BE BOUGHT, NO MATTER WHAT IS OFFERED.

POINTS TO PONDER:

TRUE LOVE DEMANDS TOTAL POSSESSION OF EACH OTHER. IT IS INDESTRUCTIBLE AND BEYOND VALUE.

THE FLAME OF LOVE FOR EACH OTHER MUST BURN BRIGHTLY FROM THE

BEGINNING TO THE END.

MARRIAGE IS A SEAL AND SPEAKS OF PERMANENCE, BELONGING AND SECURITY. THIS BONDING MUST BE CLOSELY GUARDED. UNFORTUNATELY, MANY MARRIAGES TODAY LOSE THAT BONDING.

ONE KEY TO THEIR ONGOING PLEASURE IN THEIR MARRIAGE WAS THE TENDERNESS AND HONOR TO EACH OTHER. MANY MARRIAGES TODAY LOSE THEIR HONOR! EVEN IN MISUNDERSTANDING, THEY WORKED OUT

THEIR ISSUES IN A CIVIL MANNER.

TRUE LOVE CANNOT BE PURCHASED OR DESTROYED.

APPLICATION: MARRIAGE IS TIME INTENSIVE AND DEMANDS

CULTIVATION FOR A LIFETIME!
