"Suppose you just purchased a new car and are pulling up to the gas station to fill up for the first time. The sticker by the gas tank reads, "unleaded gas only." Now the person that designed the car knows it inside and out. It would be foolish to say, "I don't care what the manufacturer says. I'm stickin' diesel in here." If you did so, you would have some major car troubles. Just as it is with the car, the only way our lives will "run" the way they're meant to run is if we live according to the Designer's plan."
-Christopher West, Good News About Sex and Marriage
Look at the way we parent our children. Instruction and boundaries are given out of love not out of control; This demonstration of true love safeguards our children.
Just as we know what is best for our children, even more so Our Father in heaven know what's best for us.
He too gave us instructions and boundaries as a love letter to ignite our lives and yes, even sex within marriage!
“I don't want to sugarcoat NFP and say that it is all sunshine and daisies because it requires sacrifice and sacrifice is never easy! But the JOY that grows out of selfless love, expressed through NFP, is one of the greatest blessings you can give to yourself and to your spouse.”
"I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly"
- John 10:10
