A Conscious Decision

God's definition of true love is to protect and provide for another person. This means consciously making the other person's happiness, health and spiritual growth as important to you as your own. The following guidelines will help you integrate this definition into your experience with that special person in your life:

• Put Jesus Christ first in your relationship.
• Be open and honest with each other.
• Accept each other completely, including faults and failures.
• Seek your parents’ approval for your relationship.
• Avoid any setting or activity that may tempt you to compromise your commitment to sexual purity.
• Handle disagreements quickly and lovingly.
• Emphasize the “friend” in boyfriend and girlfriend.
