The Talk, Tim Keller, and a Video about Sex

The TalkI recently had “The Talk” with my fifth-grade son. It was very brief and went something like this:

Son, I can pretty much tell you everything you’ll ever need to know about sex in one sentence: God made sex. And if you do sex God’s way, it will turn out good. But if you don’t do sex God’s way it will cause all kinds of problems.

As soon as the words came out of my mouth I realized it was actually three sentences. But he didn’t seem to notice. So I asked,

Any questions?

He didn’t have any so I figured I must have done a good enough job.

But then I came across this video of Tim Keller talking about sex. How Keller can pack so many profound insights into a 2-minute video amazes me. Here he explains 1). the meaning of sex, 2). why it’s so unfulfilling outside of marriage, and, 3.) how satisfying it can be when we do it God’s way.

I can tell you from experience, both good and bad, Keller’s advice it’s worth heeding!

So my question for you is, when should I show this to my son? Should I wait? If so, how long? Or should I show it to him before Ohio State puts the finishing touches on their undefeated B1G season this Saturday against Mark Dantonio’s Spartans?

    depending how mature your son is with the subject. Need to pray first about it. Do what God would tell you first.
