We Had Sex & Now I Can’t Live Without Him! Girls Let’s Talk About Sex.
Some how girls start training at a very young age to learn to nurture and care for their future children, staring with the baby doll. We begin to think about love & marriage at a young age as well. I believe God wired us to mature in that way in a much quicker time. Boys, on the other hand, not so much. It takes them much longer to begin to even think about settling down, marrying the love of their life and having children. The main thing that is on a young man’s mind is what they are going to eat that day and how they can be the absolute best at whatever they may be chasing at that time, basketball, career etc. If you were to ask a young man what they are looking for in a future wife, you may get some very surface answers like “She has to be fine”. But I can totally understand. They have not even lived life yet. Why would they be so concerned about settling down?? Young girls, we should take notes from them on that one.
I said all this to say that most of the young men that you may come across in your teen years and even young adult years are not focused on anything permanent but only what satisfies them at the moment. It is crucial and I mean CRUCIAL that you recognize that because knowing this will save your heart and your entire life from a lot of heart break, pain, and negative consequences that you will have to live with for the rest of your life ( trust me, I know what I’m talking about)
In watching this short video I want you to walk away with 3 things:
1. What is considered temporary and whats considered permanent.
2. The act that is considered permanent.
3. The aftermath of making a permanent decision in a temporary situation.
