Young Love

How young is too young when love is concerned? This morning my little sister told me how devastated her friend, whose about 17, was after a breakup. In today's you have kids who are 12, 13 years old falling deeply in love. It just doesn't make sense to me. To put all of your emotions and energy into another person at such a young age is just setting yourself up for heartache. I've seen it happen to many times. But on the other hand sometimes, on very rare occasions, young love does work out. There are some couples who have been together since grade school, and they're still going strong. I just feel that kids today rush into relationships to fast. Real relationships take maturity that most adults don't even have. Love is something that takes time and maturity, it's not something that should be rushed.

The Bible tells us to guard our hearts, we should treat it like our most prized possession. You know how every home has that one room with all the nice furniture, the room with the white couch. You wouldn't let any ol' Joe enter that room unless you knew they were mature enough to treat it with respect. And you dang sure wouldn't let any immature kids in there. So why do we so easily let people inhabit the sanctuary of hearts? Riddle me that?

"Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life." - Proverbs 4:23
