5 Stories From The Bible About Falling In Love
Here are 5 stories from the Bible about falling in love.
Comforted by Love
When we fall in love, we find comfort when we need it, particularly when we’ve experienced a loss. The same thing goes for Isaac who had just lost his mother, Sarah. Just after Isaac’s mother died, “Isaac brought her into the tent of Sarah his mother and took Rebekah, and she became his wife, and he loved her. So Isaac was comforted after his mother’s death” (Genesis 24:67). Just being there for Isaac, Rebekah was able to comfort her husband. Such acts enabled their love to grow for one another.
Driven by Love
There is no greater motivator than love….even over money. Such was the case for Jacob who worked seven years for his wife, but it was for the wrong wife (Leah), but “Jacob loved Rachel. And he said, “I will serve you seven years for your younger daughter Rachel” (Genesis 29:18). That meant Jacob spent fourteen years to finally be able to wed Rachel. That shows how strong his love was for her.
The Song of Solomon is one of the most romantic books in the Bible. In it, Solomon writes in the third person, “Scarcely had I passed them when I found him whom my soul loves. I held him, and would not let him go until I had brought him into my mother’s house, and into the chamber of her who conceived me” (Song of Solomon 3:4). This surely sounds like an unrelenting love.
Enduring in Love
The Apostle Paul gave one of the best descriptions of love in the Bible, writing, “Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things” (1 Corinthians 13:7). When you love someone, you can truly bear things much better; you can believe the best in your mate, you can have hopes in your loved one; and you can endure much better when you have someone you love.
Two in Love
I’ve never seen any two legged stools because they’re not practical. They just won’t work. Now extend that into the field of human relations. For example, “a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken” (Ecclesiastes 4:12). Two are better than one, but when the Spirit of God is in that relationship, it’s like having “a threefold cord,” and that’s not “quickly broken.”
Maybe you can think of someone you can share these with. God loves us and has also given us the capacity to love others, so why not love others so that they might know who Jesus’ disciples are?
