We must put God first in our lives

---- — We must put God first in our lives

Idols can be anything in our lives that we put ahead of God. One of these is the “pill.” The “pill” has become our No. 1 idol and is destroying our values and our country’s spirit, which should be God. Our values in order should be first, God; second, our family; third, our country and everything that follows in the proper order; not enjoying sex at any time with no worry of pregnancy or children that the “pill” provides.

Instead of looking for and promoting sex in our lives, in our dating relationships and relying on the “pill” to prevent pregnancies, we should be putting our spirit that was given to us by the greatest spirit, God, as No. 1 in our lives.

Look at all of our sexual problems in the United States and around the world . To prevent these sex problems, the spirit, the good and Holy Spirit, must be given its proper order in our lives; and then we will be on the right track for both this fleeting life and, more importantly, for the eternal life that God has waiting for us in heaven.

When the two spouses of a strong, loving and eternal marriage start making mutual decisions and take mutual action about their family planning, and not relying on the “pill” to do so, then our lives and the lives of our loved ones will be in the loving hands of the Almighty God. Plain and simple, sex must be in a loving and mutually respectful holy marriage, and God will then be first in our lives as well.

At last our values will be in the good and proper order to make us the greatest country, under God, that we are capable of being.
