When Conquerors Wimp Out - #6817
Ask God for the courage to confront, even when you're young, even when you're single. Deal with issues while they're small. Face the conflict; don't try to bury it. When a conqueror on the battlefront learns to be a confronter on the home front, then he's really being a man.
Being a Winning Head Coach - #6787
Start spending some time getting your family together spiritually and getting with the Lord together. Get them in the Lord's presence together. The only way you can fail at this is to not try.
Making a Man Feel Safe - #6780
Every man needs a woman who will love the little boy inside him. See, the man is very self-assured outside, but so self-conscious on the inside. He doesn't need a woman who's a critic, or a nag, or a predator, or a competitor. Men are very lonely people, because most of their relationships are only on the surface. But God raises up a special breed of women who are able to give a man a harbor
You Need a Love Triangle - #6722
Before you get married, wait for someone who is joined to Jesus as you are, because it is worth the wait. And after you marry, practice His presence daily in your home. A love triangle with Jesus as that real third person is the strongest bond on earth.
Nothing Worse Than a Nag - #6655
You and I and Solomon all agree. In fact, just about everybody agrees. There's nothing worse than a nag. So, let's decide right now not to be a nag. Oh yeah, or to create one.
The "God Is For Girls" Myth - #6632
God is not just for girls. I mean, it's unacceptable for a girl to be the conscience of a dating relationship. It's unacceptable for a woman to be the spiritual leader in a family because of a man forfeiting that leadership. It's unacceptable for a man to hold back in spiritual arenas while he's giving his all in his business and every other arena.
How to Give a Man a Makeover - #6631
Ruth Graham, Billy Graham's wife, said very wisely: "It is my job to love Billy; it is God's job to change him." That principle applies to sons and fathers to some extent, and certainly to husbands. A woman is a powerful force in changing a man if she makes him feel safe. A man often isn't going to risk changing unless he feels like there's a woman who will love him whether he changes or not.
How to Lose Something Spiritually and Keep it Off - #6570
I think as Christians we should be known for being too busy doing good things to miss the things we're not doing. Let's be known not for what we're against, but for the great things we're for.
Every Sister Needs a Brother - #6539
Women, remember the kind of bait you offer determines the kind of catch you get. Act like you want brothers. Act like you want guys who will be friends, not users; not conquerors. And men, cultivate sisters; a level of sharing and caring that the sexual conquerors will never even get close to. Treat her like family. She's your sister, man! And every sister needs a brother.
A Better Way to Make Matches - #6447
Couldn't we work toward a better goal than everybody pairing up; a kingdom of men and women who want to be friends, not lovers? Out of that can come some really strong marriages, because, you know what? Marriage isn't the ultimate sexual conquest, it's the ultimate friendship. So, start practicing now.
