My Love


You are all fair, my love, and there is no spot in you  (Song of Solomon 4:7).

King Solomon was the wisest man who ever lived; he was also a man with 700 wives and 300 mistresses.  We should conclude that wisdom and common sense don’t always go hand-in-hand.

We know that Solomon married most of these women to build alliances with foreign kings.  There may have been some wisdom in that, but what happened to love?

When you read the love Song of Solomon and the Shulamite beauty, there is no doubt that they loved each other deeply and passionately.  Of all his wives and mistresses, he truly loved this one woman.

The Shulamite must have been a most wonderful woman in every way, for Solomon found no flaw in her.  As far as he was concerned, she was perfect.

Love does that.  It sees the Shulamite without spot or wrinkle, no matter what she sees in herself.  The eye of the Lover is all that counts.

God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8).
