A Simple Thought {from the Song of Solomon}

     My pastor was preaching a few weeks ago out of the Song of Solomon.  Every since then I've had this thought on my heart.  He came to this verse where the daughters of Jerusalem ask the young maiden this question:

What is thy beloved more than another beloved, O thou fairest among women? what is thy beloved more than another beloved, that thou dost so charge us?
                               Song of Solomon 5:9

     She was living and speaking of her beloved in such a way that the daughters of Jerusalem were asking what made him so special. In relationship to the Christian life that’s how we should be living and speaking. After they asked her this question she didn’t waste the opportunity to tell them about her beloved.

     This verse makes me realize how short I fall as to what I should be as a christian.

I thought the same thing when he preached that.
