I have to admit the younger generation never cease to shock/surprise me. Ok I am sounding like my mum and her generation well I guess I am getting old well I am an Auntie to two gorgeous twenty something men. I was having a conversation with a 24 year girl, yes I said girl rather than woman because she is very immature I wouldn’t go into details but let’s just say I have to go over stuff with her like I am speaking to a child, I am sure you get the picture – I don’t want to be insulting.
Back to the day I was having this conversation which she started. She had recently broken up with her boyfriend of 2 months, I was shocked to discover she had only been with him for just a short period of time. The way she was talking about him I thought they had been together for about a year or just under. She was always banging on about stuff they did, they swapped weekends as to whose home they will be sleeping in, blah, blah.
She admitted that she knew that sleeping with a guy she is wrong but that all the Christian guys she knew did, that they claim it is the only way they will know their girlsf4iends are committed to the relationship. I was quick to dismiss that notion, informing that the kids I taught in Sunday school have not gone down (Ok a few have but that’s another story) that road. Most of them have stayed pure, waited until their wedding day. She was like how can a guy be virgin? Not have sex until the day he is married, she could not believe that such men exist! So I took my time, going very slowly that it happens that yea not all guys were virgins at the time of their wedding but that is because some guys don’t come to Christ until they become adults in other words, they have lived a life of sin but that once they come to faith they are no longer involved in premarital sex, etc. Needless to say, I don’t think she will change cos she’s already on the hunt for a new man and she’s obvious missing sex. Am I disappointed, yes but then she’s just a church goer so until she has a real Holy Ghost encounter she will be that way. I am not judging her I will keep praying for her and other young people in her shoes, I just pray it’s not too late that she doesn’t end up marrying the wrong person. She had been saying how all her friends are all in relationships ( cohabiting) and having kids, etc.
She probably thinks there is some the wrong with me cos I am a 40 something, never married, no kids, not being in a relationship (didn’t tell her how long, she will probably faint) for years.
