Faith Tidbit #48
In his book, Money, Sex, and Power, Richard Foster compares our sexuality to a river. When we use our sexuality within the boundaries created for it by God, sex also is a good and beautiful thing. But when misused, sex can hurt and destroy and disrupt people’s lives. To King Solomon, who certainly would have done well to pay greater attention, God said, "Drink water from your own cistern...rejoice in the wife of your youth...May her breasts satisfy you at all times; may you be intoxicated always by her love..." Sexual intimacy, one component of that special order of the friendship between a wife and a husband, is a beautiful (and even intoxicating) thing, meant only for a wife and a husband.
