Question: Is it good to have a girlfriend?
Define girlfriend, so I’m sure of what you mean.
Dictionary meaning is female friend. Owkay. Wad I really meant was, is it good for a guy to date a girl?
Just having a female friend without committing sin is not wrong. But we must consider certain other factors.
How old are they? Are they ready emotionally, psychologically, financially and spiritually for a relationship and then marriage?
Are they also mature enough to control their emotions? The Bible says that you cannot take fire into your bosom and not be burned.
Owkay. So its like a two edged sword. Misuse it, it becomes bad, use it wisely, it becomes good.
Better to get into a relationship only when you are ready. It comes with responsibilities.
1 Timothy 5:2 says, “Treat older women as you would your mother, and treat younger women with all purity as you would your own sisters.”
Maintaining pure relationships is very important
