Today we literally have a touchy subject. A simple gesture or touch can mean more to someone than we may realize. The simplest touch can spark and maintain amazing levels of intimacy between a husband and wife. There is an entire book of the Bible devoted to it. Song of Solomon is clear about the importance of intimacy. The ever popular love-struck couple details their love and desire for one another in one of the most romantic love stories ever written. And if you read closely you can discover some of the ways this couple kept the fire burning.
According to Dr. Kevin Leman, you can have an active marriage, but it will not be fulfilling without intimacy. Life requires each of us to do a lot of hum drum things. Approximately 90% of life is filled with the boring daily duties such as diaper changes, grocery store runs, work, carpooling, paying the bills, and so on. In the ever rolling ball of responsibility, God has designed and delivered something fabulous into to our routinized lives of obligation. We can touch one another, kiss one another, and pleasure our beloved in such a way that all of the daily chores and concerns we function through are no longer sitting in the forefront of our minds. Marital intimacy can transport us into another place and time. As Paul cautions us in 1 Cor. 7:1-7, the ultimate marital goal is to satisfy one another. Therefore, let us not neglect the gift of touch when it is such an important stimulant toward better things. Created in His image, you are the answer to a God-ordained desire. Fill it! :D
