OPENING PRAYER: Lord, let the light of your word shine into my life as I meditate on your word.
SCRIPTURE: SONG OF SONGS 5:2-16

Question(s) for Reflection
• Q2: Is there any example for me to follow or not to follow?

Outline For Scripture Union Daily Guide 23 March 2024

Here is a bride’s love and appreciation of her groom. What may we learn from this woman’s experience for improving our marital relationships? Notice the nightmare bride can experience when her spouse is not available at needed times (vs.2,6). It satisfies when a husband is sensitive to know when the wife needs him! Is there any example to follow or not to follow in vs.3-6 (cf. 1 Corinthians 7:3-5)?

The bride’s questions (v.3) should challenge us to always be holy, awaiting our Bridegroom, Jesus. Maximum satisfaction in sexual intercourse between spouses requires not only emotional readiness but also bodily preparation (vs.3,5).

How do you see the woman’s sincerity (v.8) and the response of her friends (v.9; see 6:1 also)? Openness about our feelings for our spouse is always very helpful.
Notice how the woman was willing to risk her life and dignity as she searched for her lover (vs.7-8). She is not ashamed to say how she desperately wants to be with him. From vs.10-16, she responds to those who are inquisitive about her love affair with the most romantic words to describe the qualities that made her attracted to her lover who is also her closest friend.

Practice/Word Application
So what? Always reflect and outline the strength of your spouse.
• Any new insight or reinforcement of what you already know?

Closing Prayer
Ask the Lord for grace to do this.

Prayer for the week
• Pray that God will come and take His place in the hearts of our youths • Pray for genuine salvation among our youths and children • Pray for them, for grace to stand for God and His righteousness in this evil days

“Give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man.”
