First Love

Do you remember your first love? I remember mine. I was seventeen and in high school. He was a senior — tall, handsome and athletic. He liked me and wanted to date me. He made me feel special. When I looked at him, my “heart skipped a beat!”
Song of Songs, also called Song of Solomon, is an Old Testament book written by King Solomon. The book describes the love story between Solomon and a woman he loved. Solomon says that this woman is “like a lily among thorns” (verse 2:2). The woman says that Solomon is handsome and charming (verse 1:16).
Many people believe that this love story symbolizes God’s love for His people. God’s love makes me feel very special. I am excited to know that He loves me so much that He sent His Son to die for me.
God loves you so much! He wants to be your Father and to share His blessings with you.
