Marriage and music are both gifts from God. Both are to be enjoyed with balance…
Love songs, even suggestive love songs, are just as appropriate to ‘set the mood’ for romance and intimacy within marriage as songs of worship are appropriate to ‘set the mood’ for worship and intimacy with God…
…Because, you can’t get romantic while listening to “Amazing Grace”. And, if you can, I’m worried about you.
Proverbs 5:18-19 (NKJV)
18 Let your fountain be blessed,
And rejoice with (A)the wife of your youth.
19 (B)As a loving deer and a graceful doe,
Let her breasts satisfy you at all times;
And always be [a]enraptured with her love.
Song of Solomon 1:1-3 (CJB)
2 Let him smother me with kisses from his mouth,
for your love is better than wine.
