June 3, Reading 2 – Song of Solomon 5:2-6:9

SAA Notes

The expression of our sexuality in marriage is both good and desirable – “eat … drink your fill, O lovers”. It is good to look for appropriate and modern metaphors in talking with your spouse about their body. Proverbs 5:18,19 has some good advice to husbands in this area.

SJA Notes

* God of Wonders, You are living and true, loving and kind. Teach us from Your word today.

“There are sixty queens and eighty concubines, and virgins without number. My dove, my perfect one, is the only one, …”

We continue to plumb the depths of what relational faithfulness looks like here in this book, the Song of Solomon.

The husband’s mind is bent in a singular fashion.

In Jeremiah 29 we read,

“You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart.”

The love of husband and wife patterns the devotion that we see between God and His people, between the Head (Jesus) and the Body (the Church).

We read of the wife’s singular devotion in seeking for her beloved.

And the eye of the husband remains single.

“My dove, my perfect one, is the only one, …”

* Faithful God,

Please mark us as a faithful people.

Please help those of us who are married to be singularly devoted to our beloved.

And for all of us Your people Lord God, please help us to keep our eyes fixed in You and You alone. No other god, no other power, no earthly means or ideology.

Please Lord, please fix our eyes on Jesus today.
