The Poisoning of Love (Song of Songs 5:2-16)

The honeymoon is over. It doesn’t take a married couple long to realize that marriage is more difficult on the inside than it appears from the outside. Perhaps that’s why marriage has been compared to a window with flies on it: The flies on the outside of the window want in and the flies on the inside of the window want out. Early in their marriage Solomon and his wife experience the type of poisoning that most marriages encounter and some cannot endure. The enemies of indifference and poor communication rear their heads early and often in such relationships, requiring a supernatural dose of humility and perseverance to overcome. Will this newlywed couple get “buyer’s remorse”? Or will they discover the antidote to counter the poisoning of their love.
