I’ve heard a lot of positive things about the CCEF booklets out in the hall. I’m glad they are helping people. Two of the most popular booklets are “How can I stop losing it with my kids,” and “Help with sexual addiction.” Those problems are universal. Think about what was in the news this week.
Now I don’t think sex and anger are the only things people ever struggle with. We all struggle with lots of things. But those two areas are particularly entrapping.
Let’s start with anger.
Think about it. Most parents do just about everything they can do to give their kids the very best. They sacrifice greatly, to help their kids. They also would probably agree that “losing it” isn’t exactly an effective parenting strategy. It isn’t going to model good behavior. And yet, they still can’t seem to stop. All the good intentions in the world don’t seem to stop them from saying things to their kids they know they shouldn’t say and don’t even want to say.
Then there’s the enslavement of sex. For those it enslaves, it is, perhaps, even stronger…(To listen to the rest of the sermon go here.)
