Marriages are under attack, and one of the ways that many fall is that the intimacy fails along the way. Scripture gives married couples lessons to follow:
Drink water from your own cistern,
water flowing from your own well.
Should your springs flow in the streets, streams of water in the public squares?
They should be for you alone and not for you [to share] with strangers.
Let your fountain be blessed, and take pleasure in the wife of your youth.
A loving doe, a graceful fawn— let her breasts always satisfy you; be lost in her love forever.
Why, my son, would you be infatuated with a forbidden woman or embrace the breast of a stranger?
For a man’s ways are before the LORD’s eyes, and He considers all his paths.
Prov 5:15-21 (HCSB)
Many people imagine God as a fuddy-duddy in the sky who doesn’t want His children to have any fun or enjoy anything in this life. People have a concept of God that says if something is enjoyable, He probably wouldn’t want us to partake of it. Those people have never read Proverbs 5.
