Equip your house with what’s NECESSARY.

Would you build a house from the inside first, and raise the walls later? Would you arrange the furniture first before laying the foundation and building the structure? No. You would be a fool to do that.

The furniture is the last thing you add to the house, even though you might have an idea of how you’d like it to look.

Unfortunately, that’s exactly what some young people do. Instead of spending their teenage years working the ground and digging deep, as we learned these last two Sundays, they want the furniture first.

The furniture here represents your love life. Your love life can’t be just any “cheap” asset. It must be the perfect match for the rest of the house. It has to fit.

Many youths don’t want to respect this law of life. They are in too big of a hurry. They need a girlfriend or boyfriend; they need to feel the adrenaline rush of being “in love.” They forget about a career, an education or faith, just dive into an experience that you’ll pay for dearly in the end. We’ve seen so many young girls abandoning their studies and their dreams because they got pregnant. Others, both guys and girls, ended up contracting a disease.

Worrying about having a relationship now is equivalent to arranging the furniture before building the house. It makes no sense.

Just think. If you get into a relationship right now, will you marry that person in one year? Probably not. You still have other things to accomplish that are more important, such as your relationship with God (Foundation) and your career (Structure). That unhealthy relationship will just drag on and on, attracting more disappointments while everyone else passes you by.
