Song of Solomon

This morning, I read the Song of Solomon. It's only 8 chapters, and it's got a lot of content that is specific to marriage. But it's also a love story, a beautiful poem about sexual purity and ultimate fulfillment. Sort of like chick lit, but far better than any of the fluff that is written today.

I once read (in Eric Ludy's companion study to his wife's book Authentic Beauty, if anyone cares where), that girls should read Song of Solomon and Revelation at the same time, to see the side of Christ that is loving and sees her as his precious bride, but also the side that is powerful and victorious. I have yet to read Revelation, but I greatly enjoyed the bride of Christ aspect of SoS this morning.

"You have captured my heart, my sister, my bride. You have captured my heart with one glance of your eyes, with one jewel of your necklace." SoS 4:9

That's a interesting but I suppose effective idea, to read SoS and Revelation together.
