The pressure is ON to loose your virginity like yesterday!!! Parents who might have otherwise counseled you, forbade you or restricted you from sexual involvement before marriage, are now encouraging you to use protection because they have given in to the belief that YOU WILL DO IT ANYWAY, so you might as well be safe. But, before you go ahead and do what ‘everybody’ thinks you should be doing or have done by now, here are seven reasons to WAIT!
WAIT because IT’S NOT TRUE! Not everyone is doing it. You are not everyone, you are an individual. Make your own decision, don’t follow the herd!
WAIT because YOU CAN’T TAKE IT BACK! Once you give it, it is gone! There’s no rewinding the time. When you meet the one you should have shared that wonderful first experience with, you will know what a waste it was to throw it away.
WAIT because YOU DESERVE LOVE. Yes you do. Anybody that compels you to have sex outside of a loving commitment (marriage) does not really love you. Putting out doesn’t lead to happily ever afters anymore than losing your shoe!
WAIT because IT IS NEVER 100% SAFE. There is no such thing as safe sex! The safest sex is that between a man and a woman who are wholly committed and truthful to each other. You might end up with a baby, or even worse, a fatal disease.
WAIT because THERE IS A TIME FOR EVERYTHING. There’s a time to play, and laugh, and cry, and yes, have sex for the first time. Enjoy your adolescence. Don’t be in a hurry to grow up. When you have grown up responsibilities, you’ll realize that you cheated yourself of a childhood, if you never really enjoyed the simple things of love without the burden of sex.
WAIT because PRACTICE DOESN’T MAKE YOU AN EXPERT. The idea that practice makes perfect is true in some situations, but not all. And definitely not where it concerns something as personal and emotional as sex. Having many relationships never made anyone an expert at relationships. It actually reveals how BAD they are at relationships. You really don’t need to be a prostitute to be good at sex.
WAIT because GOD SAYS SO. The dangerous impact of promiscuity can be felt all over the world, among Christians and Atheists alike. Consider the many broken homes, teenage pregnancies and abortions! God put in those boundaries for a reason bigger than we realize. When we do it His way, we get the best outcome!
My brothers and sisters, Christian or unbeliever, please WAIT!
