Discussion for Song of Solomon 5:3

  • the bride was too much into comforts of the body, warmth, sleep,dreaming...total comfort.

    She hesitated too long weighing the choice.Would she answer the call of her beloved, or to stay in the place of fleshly comfort.

    The Holy Spirit being so sensitive, understood her longing and desire to be with Him, did not at all match the intense love He felt for her, so He left alone.

    How many times have we chosen sleep and slumber when He called us at an convenient time.
