Song of Songs 5:1-16
With the positives and negatives of marriage, there must be love, facing life together, and friendship. The home, marriage is the bedrock of our society.
- Enjoy the intimacies of love in marriage, and praise one another (v. 1).
- There will be times of discord, quarrels, and temporary rejections; learn from them and grow together. Do not let trivial things, the kids, or the job or career get between you and your love for one another (vv. 2-8).
- Be one another’s friend – always return to praising and admiring each other (vv. 9-16).
Our best friend is our spouse next to Jesus who is the friend who sticks closer than a brother.
