Principles for Finding Your True Love

The majority of PPCers are singles; about 90 percent, I'd say. Thus on February 15, I started a teaching series on Biblical Principles for Finding True Love. True love is for life not for a season. It is true love only if it results in marriage. Love that does not result in marriage is not true love. Singleness is a good thing and does not mean you should get married if you don't want to. Some people say that celibacy is a gift, but I found that it is mostly a choice. If you are reading this and not married, the tendency is because you've chosen not to. You could have been married long time ago had you chose to marry just anybody. You didn't because you have some ideals, the kind of person you are looking for. The only exception of course when nobody pursued you or courted you and that's why you have no option other than being single. 

In this series I am covering what I call the P.E.A.C.E Principle based on a 3 love stories in the Old Testament, namely, Isaac and Rebekah, Jacob and Rachel, Boaz and Ruth. These principles are simple and easy to remember.

P-The Principle of Providence
E-The Principle of Exposure
A-The Principle of Attraction
C-The Principle of Compatibility
E-The Principle of Endurance. 

As I began to meditate on the passage and also on the principles, I thought maybe I should write a booklet based on these principles.
