One of the negative impacts of environmental factor affecting the family is wrong use of sex. Many married coupled engaged in extra-marital sexual affairs with opposite sex who are not their rightful spouse. Many unmarried singles are also engaged in pre-marital sex even among Christians and they do not see anything wrong in it. Know that anyone who engages in such an act has destroyed the sanctity of the family and has broken the marriage vow. You must repent, confess to your spouse and start building a strong family. As youth, be determined to keep yourself for your rightful husband or wife, let no one despise your youth.
Point of Emphasis: Abstain from all appearance of evil (1 Thess. 5:22)
Prayer Point: Lord, help me not to fall into sexual sin. I will not pollute my destiny and my family.
