What’s the Deal with Sex?

Sex is not a dirty word, but how's a kid supposed to know? In this lesson we introduce God's design for sex in marriage, so kids can start thinking right about it all.

Key Points:

  • Sex is not a dirty word, but it is a word you should be sure to use when talking to your parents.
  • Sex is something God made just for marriage, and it’s a good thing. It’s a gift for a husband and wife.
  • Sex is more special than your friends even know. You’ll hear more about sex as you get older.
  • Always be respectful when you talk about sex!

Memory Verse:

Ephesians 5:31 A man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one.

What to Do About Sexual Temptation

Watch the video above and talk about it with your family. Learn more.

The Bible tells us what to do when we’re tempted. We have to catch and throw away any thought that doesn’t honor God.

Key Points:

  • Temptation is something everyone deals with.
  • We need to know how things like pornography, talking drity, or acting dirty can lead to trouble.
  • If you’re tempted, do these four things:
  • Take your thoughts captive. (2 Corinthians 10:5.)
  • Run away. (2 Timothy 2:22.)
  • Run toward good things. (2 Timothy 2:22.)
  • Tell somebody.

Memory Verse:

2 Timothy 2:22  Run from anything that stimulates youthful lusts. Instead, pursue righteous living, faithfulness, love, and peace. Enjoy the companionship of those who call on the Lord with pure hearts.
