How different our lives are when we really know what is deeply important to us, and keeping that picture in mind, we manage ourselves each day to be and to do what really matters most.--Stephen Covey

God Never Blinks: Life Lesson #9

Life Lesson #9:

The most important sex organ is the brain.

I am going to let this one speak for itself. And I will leave you with an excerpt from the book:

"The writers of it [the "Big Book" of Alcoholics Anonymous] must have had a sense of humor, because the sex advice starts on page 69. The book advises one to take a personal inventory, to look at resentments and fears, but also at one's sex life, what worked and what didn't. Then create a sane and sound ideal between you and God about what is right for you alone.

"I needed to trust God with my sexuality. I had to look at sex as a gift that springs from a God who made me with desires and longings and passions. I needed to know and believe that God was creative enough to deign men who would not abuse or abandon me in a relationship.

"Sex had to be part of a larger, whole relationship.

"... 'Sex is up here.' It's not about performing for each other. It's not your job to please anyone. 'Not that much of sex is about having an orgasm,' ... 'That's the icing. All the other ingredients make up the cake. ..." (Brett, pp. 45-46). 

What does this Life Lesson mean to you? What does it say to you? Do you see sex in this way?
