Husbands, love your wives

Colossians 3:19:  Husbands, love your wives and do not be harsh with them.  The word for love here in verse 19 refers to the kind of sacrificial, self-giving, I-will-lay-down-my-life kind of love.  A love that was best modeled and displayed by Jesus Himself.  Just a few verses earlier in Colossians 3, we see Paul talking […]

In the midst of ‘The Adventure’ series, our study through the Song of Solomon, one question that might have come up is ‘How do I talk to my children about sex?’  I’ve heard that question from parents of elementary aged children to those who have teenagers.
