Song of Songs? What’s the Point?

Have you ever had one of “those dreams?”  You know the ones.  It might include a neighbor, a co-worker, a complete stranger, or even your own old man or old lady.

One thing these dreams all have in common–“satisfaction guaranteed!”

I have read in more than one Christian source that one of these dreams may signal an invitation to union or wholeness with God.  Imagine that!

Nearly smack in the middle of the Old Testament we find the book of “Song of Songs of Solomon.”  It is a touching story of a loving encounter between a gorgeous woman and a king/shepherd figure.  (Whom else in the Bible do we see as both King and Shepherd?)

With all the raunchy, lustful sex we find in the media, it was refreshing to read about a truly loving relationship.

It ocured to me that it might be easier for most woman than for most men to relate to the encounter in Song of Songs for obvious reasons.

However, truly, Song of Songs can substitue for one of any of our intimate dreams as it is a universal call to union with God.

Is Song of Songs erotica?  Perhaps, but as so many before me have said, “that is in the eye of the beholder!”  Have faith.
