Quote-A-Day: I Kissed Dating Goodbye

Joshua Harris

“When God knows you're ready for the 
responsibility of commitment, He'll reveal the right person under the right circumstances.” 

“The right thing at the wrong time is the wrong thing.” 

“Don’t concern yourself with being right in others’ eyes. And don’t secretly hope that their lives will fall 
apart so that your opinion will be vindicated. Instead, concentrate on obeying God in your own life and, when possible, helping others to obey Him as well. 
You don’t have to prove others wrong to continue on the course you know God has shown you.” 

“Living to glorify God means doing everything...
for Him,
His way,
to point to His greatness
and to reflect His goodness.” 

“The world takes us to a silver screen on which flickering images of passion and romance play, and as we watch, the world says, “This is love.” God takes us to the foot of a tree on which a naked and bloodied man hangs and says, “This is love.” 

“Terms don't define our lives; our lives define our terms.” 

“The most romantic things a man can do for a woman are the little things that let her know that she's on his mind and in his heart.” 

“God gave people 2 ears and 1 mouth because He wants us to listen twice as much as we talk.” 

“True purity, however, is a direction, a persistent, determined pursuit of righteousness. This direction starts in the heart, and we express it in a lifestyle that flees opportunities for compromise.” 

“Having a girlfriend was no longer my greatest need. Knowing and obeying Him was . I wanted to please Him in my relationships even if it meant looking radical and foolish to other people - even if it meant kissing dating goodbye.” 

“Every relationship for a Christian is an opportunity to love another person like God has loved us.”
