How should we respond when someone tries to have an inappropriate relationship with us? I especially like the teaching of 1 Timothy 4:12: “Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, how you live, in your love, faith, and purity.” The godly judgment allows us to set clear boundaries, not to compromise and damage our relationship with the Lord. Of course, this can lead to the end of a toxic relationship. If someone forces us to engage in unbiblical activities, it is better to remain pure than to give in to the pressure. “Give honor to marriage, and remain faithful to one another. God will surely judge immoral people and those who commit adultery. – Hebrews 13:4.” If someone cares and respects us, that person is our true friend who will appreciate and respect our desire to be pure before marriage. If that person does not respect what is important to us before we are married, it is unlikely they will respect what is important to us after we are married. Do not underestimate your judgment in maintaining purity.
