Chapter-a-Day Song of Solomon 2

DesireHe took me home with him for a festive meal, but his eyes feasted on me! Song of Solomon 2:4b (TM)

Having just celebrated Valentines Day, I’ve been thinking a lot about love and sex. I believe that the most powerful aphrodisiac in the world is simply to be desired – to feel that unmistakable knowledge that you are wanted by another. The woman in the Song of Solomon is taken home by her lover for a feast, but when she sees that look in his eye – she knows that she is the banquet on which he is longing to feast. What is her response? See the line before…

All I want is to sit in his shade, to taste and savor his delicious love.

Communicating your desire – your holy lust and sexual appetite for your spouse – shouldn’t be confined to Valentine’s Day or an anniversary. It should be woven in to the daily fabric of  your relationship.

  1. 5 Then you must protect me from the foxes,
    foxes on the prowl,
    Well said, Tom. I liked this line from chapter 2. This chapter describes how men are visual creatures and how women want to be “chased” yet also protected. We can learn so much from Scripture!
