Now, about what you wrote: “It’s good for a man not to have sex with a woman.” 2 Each man should have his own wife, and each woman should have her own husband because of sexual immorality. 3 The husband should meet his wife’s sexual needs, and the wife should do the same for her husband. 4 The wife doesn’t have authority over her own body, but the husband does. Likewise, the husband doesn’t have authority over his own body, but the wife does. 5 Don’t refuse to meet each other’s needs unless you both agree for a short period of time to devote yourselves to prayer. Then come back together again so that Satan might not tempt you because of your lack of self-control. 6 I’m saying this to give you permission; it’s not a command. 7 I wish all people were like me, but each has a particular gift from God: one has this gift, and another has that one. (1 Corinthians 7:1-7, CEB)
We look at sex in society as bad and dirty. It is something we do not talk about because it is something very personal.
It is taboo and a topic we do not want to discuss.
But it isn’t dirty, or bad, or something to hide or run from. Sex is a gift. Given to us by God.
It is a way for us to be intimate with another human and to meet the needs and desires they have. These are also gifts from God.
Let us celebrate the gifts God gives us and live into them.
Loving People. Loving God.
