Advanced Happy Valentines! No, this is not some kinky article about foreplay on top of the kitchen table as you and your flame sizzle your way to the bedroom. I just came back from Sunday worship and the pastor delivered this line which engraved itself into my memory.
Given the above premise, you can expect this to be a wholesome article about sex in the light of Christian values. Sex within marriage. Another line that I can’t seem to shake off is this: there are no illegitimate children, only irresponsible parents. Of course, excluded from this generalization are the children resulting from abuse.
The theme of this Sunday’s sermon was about making marriage work. It was about making your spouse your best friend through the mutual act of give and take. About mutual respect. There can be no love without respect, and there can be no meaningful sex without love.
Sex was God’s divine plan for Adam and Eve. It was intended to be beautiful and fulfilling in itself, without the commercialized glorification that Hollywood brought into the picture. But in order for sex to be within God’s divine plan, it is important to understand why God invented the act in the first place. Sex was invented for procreation when God told Adam and Eve to ‘go and multiply.’
However, God did not command Adam to grab Eve by the hair, throw her down and demand her to put out. God ordered Eve into submission, but never intended for Eve to submit against her will. Of course not…sex starts in the kitchen.
If a husband wants to score, he has to win his wife over by helping her out in the house, particularly in the kitchen where she does most of the work. A husband can’t expect his wife to have the energy for sex when she’s exhausted from doing all the work around the house. Husbands, help out with the housework, and you can be assured of your night in paradise. Gotcha?!
