How to Date



Continuing our collection Single, Dating, Engaged, Married, Ben Stuart challenges the way dating is viewed in our culture today and gives us 7 things to consider in the dating process.

Key Takeaway

Cast all your cares about dating on the Lord. Lean not on your own understanding but on God to set your path straight during this dating season. God advises us to be patient when evaluating if we are meant to run next to someone for all of our days.

How you should date…

1.   Date prayfully.

2.   Date with clarity.

3.   Date with autonomy.

4.   Date with purity.

5.   Date graciously.

6.    Date with community.

7.   Date patiently.


“Dating is not something you secure to feel safety; it is proximity for the purpose of evaluation.”
