Josh Harris #1

so...i have been reading I Kissed Dating Goodbye by Josh Harris this week and i'm only half way through yet this book has already spoken so much.

"Intimacy without commitment contradicts what the Bible teaches about true love. Instead of being selfless, it's selfish; instead of being patient, it's impatient; instead of looking out for the ongoing good of the other person, it's focused on the needs of the moment."

"Where is true love found? It's found in God's brand of love-love founded on faithfulness, love rooted in commitment."

"The joy of intimacy is the reward of commitment"

Joshua Harris

Realize Harris isn't sharing the whole story on the system he promotes. You might find my blog entries of interest if you want a balanced side or what Harris leaves out.
