Contrary to popular belief, the Bible does encourage you to indulge in pleasure now instead of later:

“Catch the foxes for us, The little foxes that are ruining the vineyards, While our vineyards are in blossom.” (Song 2:15)

In the Song of Solomon, the vineyard symbolized the body. The “foxes” refer to the aging process that ruin the vineyards.

While you are young, while your vineyards are “in blossom” is the time to enjoy sexual pleasure to it’s fullest extent.

Don’t get so caught up in the busyness of life that you let this scarce gift of God slip you buy.

For a modern expression of this sentiment, I believe the chorus from the hit song “We Are Young” captures the proper sense of youthful exuberance and urgency:

Tonight, we are young
So let’s set the world on fire
We can burn brighter than the sun


Tonight, you are young. Let your passion for her burn bright. Set her world on fire.
