In Solomon’s greatest song of love, He gives vivid descriptions of love between a man and a woman. To have such a reputation of wisdom beyond measure, I’m encouraged that this strong, wise and valiant king was also tender hearted and gentle and had a deep understanding of love. I believe Solomon is speaking straight up and straight forward about “eros” (Greek term) or romantic love between a man and a woman. Check this out….
The Man Speaks
the little foxes that ruin the vineyards
Turn, my lover.
Woven throughout the verses of this beautiful love song is some imagery of God’s love for His kids. God is the Creator of all love. He teaches us how to love romantically as well as brotherly (philia) love. The most important love that the Lord displays is “Godly Love” (Agape). God loved us so much that He gave His Son for our sins. He is the ultimate Lover of all. Woven throughout the Song of Solomon is the imagery of Agape love from our Creator. I feel loved by God today.
