November 18
Expressing love
Jason Nelson

Our lasting impression of love is formed by our earliest experiences at home. Home is where we discover a thing called love and how to express it. G.K. Chesterton said that the meanest fear is the fear of sentimentality. That fear can make a home or a life austere. It can create doubts about love. I hope this isn’t a pain-filled question for you, but what were your first impressions of love?

Here are five things about love from the Bible:

It’s not too late to make our homes more loving if we invite Jesus to be a member of the family. His place is set at our table when we

  • insist that loving interaction is our family’s priority.
  • are transparent about our love for him and each other.
  • verbalize affection and gratitude for each other often.
  • establish routines and celebrate with traditions that include everyone.
  • grow together in faith as churchgoers.
  • leave a generous amount of wiggle room for people to grow on their own.

You will be able to see if your family learned to express love when everyone gets together and reminisces.

Why is it important to talk about that? . . .

Why a book about sex? Because it’s a word the world talks about, parents don’t, and God does. (Yes, he does!)

Sexpectations explores that word directly from God’s own Word—the ultimate authority—and will give you a surprising biblical perspective and a fresh new truth that you don’t expect!
