Song of Solomon 4:9 – Does your bride have your heart?

Today’s Reading: Song of Solomon 1:1‐4:16, 2 Corinthians 8:16‐24, Psalm 50:1‐23, Proverbs 22:22‐23

Song of Solomon 4:9 You have captivated my heart, my sister, my bride;
 you have captivated my heart with one glance of your eyes,
 with one jewel of your necklace.

Context: Solomon is admiring his bride’s beauty.  Several years ago someone shared this picture with me:

What Solomon's wife looked like...

Observations:

  • You have captivated my heart (2x)
    • My sister, my bride
      • With one glance of your eyes
      • With one jewel of your necklace

I find my wife beautiful.  Song of Solomon reminds me that I am a Rebecca man – NOT a short, dark haired, brunette, big smile, etc man.  I like her attributes because she has captivated my heart, not the other way around.  The discipline of romantic love is declaring to her and myself that she has captivated my heart.

Apply:  I need to regularly tell Rebecca that she has captivated my heart.

How can you effectively communicate to your spouse that he or she has your heart?
