FamilyLife Blended® Minute
Not an Excuse
Don't you hate it when someone uses your words to excuse their behavior?
About the Guest
Some cohabiting blended family couples in a ministry leader's small group used my words as justification for living together. "Ron says dating single parents should invest time on the front end to help their kids adjust to the blended family." These couples would say, living together is a good way to do that. No, it's not. Cohabitation undoes more than it builds up, but even if it didn't, it wouldn't justify the sin of premarital sex. The ends don't justify the means. Trust God and model purity.
