7 Compliments Every Christian Should Give Their SO

Based on Song of Solomon.

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. For those of you that are single, it might come as a relief to you that you don’t have to worry about planning a perfect date or getting the perfect gift for your significant other. For those that are in a relationship, the pressure is on and time is ticking.

If you’re struggling to find a perfect gift, I have a suggestion for you. Write a poem. But not just any poem. This poem should be all about your SO (significant other). You could even go one step further and take these compliments straight from the Word of God! I’m here to help by giving you some of the best compliments for you to use at your leisure.

1. Your hair is like a flock of goats.

Song of Solomon 4:1

There’s truly nothing like being compared to a goat. And not just one goat, a whole flock of them! But if you give this compliment, maybe make sure to clarify that your significant other doesn’t smell like a whole flock of goats.

2. Your neck is like the tower of David.

Song of Solomon 4:4

This is one of those compliments that may end up sounding like an insult, so have discretion while using it. Maybe your significant other wants their neck to appear strong and tower-like. If this is the case, I think this is a great compliment for that.

3. You are altogether beautiful.

Song of Solomon 4:7

This one is actually really great, so definitely use it. The rest of verse seven goes on to say “there is no flaw in you.” And who doesn’t want to be told that they’re flawless?

4. Milk and honey are under your tongue.

Song of Solomon 4:11

WARNING: THIS SHOULD ONLY BE USED BY MARRIED PEOPLE. We can’t get too explicit on Valentine’s Day. Don’t forget to leave room for Jesus, am I right?

5. Your arms are rods of gold set with topaz.

Song of Solomon 5:14

Ladies, this is a great compliment to give to the man in your life. The rest of the verse basically says that he’s a chiseled and sculpted piece of artwork. If you really want to butter him up, I say go with this one.

6. Your mouth is sweetness itself.

Song of Solomon 5:16

This is a great compliment for that sweet talker in your life. If you like when your significant other compliments you, compliment them back!

7. Your eyes are the pools of Heshbon.

Song of Solomon 7:4

This is a great one for all of those people with “eyes you can swim in.” It never hurts to give a compliment about looks. Just be sure to pair it with a compliment to their personality so you don’t make them think you’re shallow.
