Love as a conscious doxology

"How often do Christians think of sexual matters as something second-rate. Never, never, never should we do so according to the Word of God. The whole man is made to love God; each aspect of man's nature is to be given its proper place. That includes the sexual relationship, that tremendous relationship of one man to one woman. At the very beginning God brought Eve to man. A love poem can thus be beautiful. So if you are a young man or a young woman and you love a girl or you love a boy you may indeed write beautiful love poetry. Don't be afraid. That too can be praise to God. And when the two people are Christians, it can be a conscious doxology."

--Francis Schaeffer,
Art and the Bible, pgs. 39-40.
