  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:00:09.010 --> 00:00:12.010
  • WELL, GOD BLESS YOU.
  • 00:00:12.010 --> 00:00:13.130
  • IT'S ALWAYS A JOY TO COME INTO
  • 00:00:13.130 --> 00:00:14.100
  • YOUR HOMES.
  • 00:00:14.100 --> 00:00:15.140
  • IF YOU'RE EVER IN OUR AREA
  • 00:00:15.140 --> 00:00:16.220
  • PLEASE STOP BY AND BE A PART OF
  • 00:00:16.220 --> 00:00:18.080
  • ONE OF OUR SERVICES.
  • 00:00:18.080 --> 00:00:19.230
  • I PROMISE YOU WE'LL MAKE YOU
  • 00:00:19.230 --> 00:00:21.030
  • FEEL RIGHT AT HOME. BUT THANKS
  • 00:00:21.030 --> 00:00:22.120
  • SO MUCH FOR TUNING IN.
  • 00:00:22.120 --> 00:00:23.250
  • THANK YOU AGAIN FOR COMING OUT.
  • 00:00:23.250 --> 00:00:25.090
  • I LIKE TO START WITH SOMETHING
  • 00:00:25.090 --> 00:00:26.140
  • FUNNY.
  • 00:00:26.140 --> 00:00:27.190
  • I HEARD ABOUT THIS MOM.
  • 00:00:27.190 --> 00:00:28.190
  • SHE HAD TWO YOUNG BOYS THAT WERE
  • 00:00:28.190 --> 00:00:29.280
  • KNOWN FOR THEIR MISCHIEVOUS
  • 00:00:29.280 --> 00:00:31.240
  • BEHAVIOR. ANY TIME TROUBLE
  • 00:00:31.240 --> 00:00:33.270
  • OCCURRED THEY WERE CERTAIN TO
  • 00:00:33.270 --> 00:00:35.090
  • BE A PART OF IT. SHE DECIDED TO
  • 00:00:35.090 --> 00:00:36.290
  • TAKE THEM ONE AT A TIME TO SEE
  • 00:00:36.290 --> 00:00:38.160
  • HER PASTOR. THE PASTOR SAID
  • 00:00:38.160 --> 00:00:40.180
  • TO THE FIRST BOY, "SON, WHERE
  • 00:00:40.180 --> 00:00:41.240
  • IS GOD?"
  • 00:00:41.240 --> 00:00:43.120
  • HE SAT THERE SILENTLY.
  • 00:00:43.120 --> 00:00:45.020
  • HE ASKED AGAIN, "WHERE IS GOD?"
  • 00:00:45.020 --> 00:00:47.060
  • STILL NO REPLY.
  • 00:00:47.060 --> 00:00:49.010
  • THE THIRD TIME THE PASTOR ASKED
  • 00:00:49.010 --> 00:00:50.060
  • THE YOUNG BOY BOLTED OUT THE
  • 00:00:50.060 --> 00:00:51.210
  • DOOR, RAN HOME, SAID TO HIS
  • 00:00:51.210 --> 00:00:52.150
  • BROTHER, "GOD IS MISSING AND
  • 00:00:52.150 --> 00:00:55.010
  • THEY THINK WE DID IT."
  • 00:00:55.010 --> 00:00:56.130
  • (LAUGHTER/APPLAUSE)
  • 00:00:56.130 --> 00:00:58.120
  • HOLD UP YOUR BIBLE AND SAY IT
  • 00:00:58.120 --> 00:00:59.000
  • LIKE YOU MEAN IT.
  • 00:00:59.000 --> 00:00:59.230
  • THIS IS MY BIBLE.
  • 00:00:59.230 --> 00:01:00.290
  • I AM WHAT IT SAYS I AM.
  • 00:01:00.290 --> 00:01:02.210
  • I HAVE WHAT IT SAYS I HAVE.
  • 00:01:02.210 --> 00:01:04.050
  • I CAN DO WHAT IT SAYS I CAN DO.
  • 00:01:04.050 --> 00:01:06.070
  • TODAY I WILL BE TAUGHT THE WORD
  • 00:01:06.070 --> 00:01:07.150
  • OF GOD.
  • 00:01:07.150 --> 00:01:08.220
  • I BOLDLY CONFESS:
  • 00:01:08.220 --> 00:01:10.020
  • MY MIND IS ALERT.
  • 00:01:10.020 --> 00:01:11.110
  • MY HEART IS RECEPTIVE.
  • 00:01:11.110 --> 00:01:12.270
  • I WILL NEVER BE THE SAME.
  • 00:01:12.270 --> 00:01:14.100
  • IN JESUS' NAME.
  • 00:01:14.100 --> 00:01:15.260
  • GOD BLESS YOU.
  • 00:01:15.260 --> 00:01:18.040
  • I WANT TO TALK TO YOU TODAY
  • 00:01:18.040 --> 00:01:19.000
  • ABOUT HAVING A HEALTHY HOME.
  • 00:01:19.000 --> 00:01:21.090
  • THE PEOPLE GOD PUT IN YOUR LIFE
  • 00:01:21.090 --> 00:01:22.290
  • ARE NOT THERE BY ACCIDENT.
  • 00:01:22.290 --> 00:01:25.240
  • IT'S NOT A COINCIDENCE THAT YOU
  • 00:01:25.240 --> 00:01:27.000
  • MET THAT WOMAN, FELL IN LOVE AND
  • 00:01:27.000 --> 00:01:28.250
  • GOT MARRIED.
  • 00:01:28.250 --> 00:01:30.190
  • THE CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE
  • 00:01:30.190 --> 00:01:31.280
  • BROUGHT YOUR PATHS TOGETHER.
  • 00:01:31.280 --> 00:01:33.250
  • YOU DIDN'T JUST DECIDE TO HAVE
  • 00:01:33.250 --> 00:01:35.040
  • THOSE CHILDREN. THEY DIDN'T
  • 00:01:35.040 --> 00:01:36.220
  • JUST SHOW UP BECAUSE YOU AND
  • 00:01:36.220 --> 00:01:38.090
  • YOUR SPOUSE GOT TOGETHER.
  • 00:01:38.090 --> 00:01:40.070
  • GOD KNEW YOUR CHILDREN BEFORE
  • 00:01:40.070 --> 00:01:41.110
  • THEY WERE EVER BORN. THEY HAD
  • 00:01:41.110 --> 00:01:43.210
  • YOUR NAME ON THEM BEFORE YOU
  • 00:01:43.210 --> 00:01:45.140
  • EVEN THOUGHT ABOUT HAVING A
  • 00:01:45.140 --> 00:01:46.200
  • CHILD.
  • 00:01:46.200 --> 00:01:48.080
  • YOUR PARENTS, THE PEOPLE THAT
  • 00:01:48.080 --> 00:01:49.080
  • RAISED YOU, YOU DIDN'T JUST
  • 00:01:49.080 --> 00:01:50.220
  • HAPPEN TO END UP IN THAT HOME.
  • 00:01:50.220 --> 00:01:52.270
  • GOD PUT YOU THERE ON PURPOSE.
  • 00:01:52.270 --> 00:01:55.160
  • HE HAS GIVEN YOU YOUR SPOUSE,
  • 00:01:55.160 --> 00:01:57.040
  • YOUR CHILDREN, THOSE PARENTS,
  • 00:01:57.040 --> 00:01:59.090
  • AS A GIFT. THEY'RE ON LOAN TO
  • 00:01:59.090 --> 00:02:01.100
  • YOU FOR A PERIOD OF TIME.
  • 00:02:01.100 --> 00:02:04.090
  • THEY'RE NOT ALWAYS GOING TO BE
  • 00:02:04.090 --> 00:02:05.010
  • THERE.
  • 00:02:05.010 --> 00:02:06.100
  • GOD IS COUNTING ON YOU TO TAKE
  • 00:02:06.100 --> 00:02:07.210
  • CARE OF HIS MOST PRIZED
  • 00:02:07.210 --> 00:02:09.240
  • POSSESSIONS.
  • 00:02:09.240 --> 00:02:11.010
  • THEY'RE NOT ORDINARY. THEY ARE
  • 00:02:11.010 --> 00:02:12.060
  • EXTREMELY VALUABLE. DON'T TAKE
  • 00:02:12.060 --> 00:02:14.150
  • THEM FOR GRANTED.
  • 00:02:14.150 --> 00:02:16.090
  • YOUR HUSBAND, YOUR WIFE, THEY
  • 00:02:16.090 --> 00:02:18.000
  • MAY HAVE SOME FAULTS. YOU MAY
  • 00:02:18.000 --> 00:02:19.050
  • NOT ALWAYS SEE EYE TO EYE BUT
  • 00:02:19.050 --> 00:02:21.020
  • THEY ARE A TREASURE GIVEN TO
  • 00:02:21.020 --> 00:02:22.280
  • YOU BY ALMIGHTY GOD.
  • 00:02:22.280 --> 00:02:25.230
  • THOSE CHILDREN MAY BE A LOT OF
  • 00:02:25.230 --> 00:02:27.030
  • WORK. THEY DON'T ALWAYS DO
  • 00:02:27.030 --> 00:02:28.140
  • WHAT'S RIGHT BUT THEY'RE A GIFT
  • 00:02:28.140 --> 00:02:29.250
  • FROM GOD.
  • 00:02:29.250 --> 00:02:31.100
  • YOU HAVE TO SEE YOUR SPOUSE,
  • 00:02:31.100 --> 00:02:33.050
  • YOUR CHILDREN, YOUR FAMILY AS
  • 00:02:33.050 --> 00:02:34.250
  • BEING EXTREMELY VALUABLE, AS A
  • 00:02:34.250 --> 00:02:36.280
  • SPECIAL TREASURE THAT GOD HAS
  • 00:02:36.280 --> 00:02:38.260
  • ENTRUSTED YOU WITH.
  • 00:02:38.260 --> 00:02:41.080
  • EVERY DAY YOU NEED TO TELL THEM,
  • 00:02:41.080 --> 00:02:42.220
  • "I LOVE YOU. I'M PROUD OF YOU.
  • 00:02:42.220 --> 00:02:44.240
  • I'M SO GLAD THAT YOU'RE IN MY
  • 00:02:44.240 --> 00:02:46.070
  • LIFE."
  • 00:02:46.070 --> 00:02:47.170
  • THEY NEED TO HEAR THIS ON A
  • 00:02:47.170 --> 00:02:48.280
  • REGULAR BASIS, NOT JUST ON THEIR
  • 00:02:48.280 --> 00:02:51.120
  • BIRTHDAY, THEIR ANNIVERSARY.
  • 00:02:51.120 --> 00:02:53.170
  • "HONEY, IT'S VALENTINE'S DAY.
  • 00:02:53.170 --> 00:02:55.030
  • I LOVE YOU."
  • 00:02:55.030 --> 00:02:56.170
  • NO, ONCE A YEAR IS NOT GOING TO
  • 00:02:56.170 --> 00:02:57.150
  • CUT IT. (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:02:57.150 --> 00:02:58.260
  • IF YOU DON'T TELL YOUR WIFE HOW
  • 00:02:58.260 --> 00:03:00.030
  • MUCH YOU LOVE HER SOMEBODY ELSE
  • 00:03:00.030 --> 00:03:01.120
  • WILL. (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:03:01.120 --> 00:03:02.240
  • BE GENEROUS WHEN IT COMES TO
  • 00:03:02.240 --> 00:03:04.030
  • EXPRESSING YOUR LOVE. BE FREE
  • 00:03:04.030 --> 00:03:06.210
  • WITH YOUR COMPLIMENTS.
  • 00:03:06.210 --> 00:03:08.200
  • MEN, YOU CAN NEVER TELL YOUR
  • 00:03:08.200 --> 00:03:09.290
  • WIFE TOO MANY TIMES HOW MUCH YOU
  • 00:03:09.290 --> 00:03:11.280
  • THINK SHE'S BEAUTIFUL AND HOW
  • 00:03:11.280 --> 00:03:14.120
  • GLAD YOU ARE TO HAVE HER IN YOUR
  • 00:03:14.120 --> 00:03:15.290
  • LIFE. TELL HER AGAIN AND AGAIN.
  • 00:03:16.000 --> 00:03:19.000
  • THAT'S ONE OF THE BEST HABITS WE
  • 00:03:19.000 --> 00:03:20.180
  • CAN ALL DEVELOP - COMPLIMENTING
  • 00:03:20.180 --> 00:03:22.150
  • OUR SPOUSE.
  • 00:03:22.150 --> 00:03:24.100
  • VICTORIA, SHE KNOWS SHE'S
  • 00:03:24.100 --> 00:03:25.090
  • BEAUTIFUL. SHE'S BEEN TOLD THAT
  • 00:03:25.090 --> 00:03:26.160
  • HER WHOLE LIFE. I COULD THINK,
  • 00:03:26.160 --> 00:03:27.290
  • "I DON'T NEED TO TELL HER
  • 00:03:27.290 --> 00:03:30.010
  • AGAIN. I'VE TOLD HER A THOUSAND
  • 00:03:30.010 --> 00:03:31.010
  • TIMES."
  • 00:03:31.010 --> 00:03:32.100
  • NO, I UNDERSTAND THIS PRINCIPLE.
  • 00:03:32.100 --> 00:03:34.000
  • PEOPLE NEVER GET TIRED OF
  • 00:03:34.000 --> 00:03:35.110
  • HEARING HOW MUCH YOU LOVE THEM,
  • 00:03:35.110 --> 00:03:38.040
  • HOW PROUD YOU ARE OF THEM.
  • 00:03:38.040 --> 00:03:39.200
  • I TELL HER AGAIN AND AGAIN,
  • 00:03:39.200 --> 00:03:41.100
  • "VICTORIA, YOU ARE SO
  • 00:03:41.100 --> 00:03:41.250
  • BEAUTIFUL."
  • 00:03:41.250 --> 00:03:43.040
  • DO YOU KNOW NOT ONCE HAS SHE
  • 00:03:43.040 --> 00:03:44.220
  • EVER SAID, "JOEL, STOP SAYING
  • 00:03:44.220 --> 00:03:46.210
  • THAT. I KNOW I'M BEAUTIFUL."
  • 00:03:46.210 --> 00:03:48.090
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:03:48.090 --> 00:03:49.280
  • YOU KNOW, IT'S FUNNY.
  • 00:03:49.280 --> 00:03:50.270
  • THE OTHER DAY WE WERE IN THE
  • 00:03:50.270 --> 00:03:51.280
  • ROOM BEHIND THE PLATFORM GETTING
  • 00:03:51.280 --> 00:03:53.130
  • READY FOR THE EARLY SUNDAY
  • 00:03:53.130 --> 00:03:55.020
  • MORNING SERVICE STANDING IN
  • 00:03:55.020 --> 00:03:56.130
  • FRONT OF THIS MIRROR. I WAS
  • 00:03:56.130 --> 00:03:57.180
  • ADJUSTING MY TIE. SHE WAS
  • 00:03:57.180 --> 00:03:58.170
  • PUTTING HER MICROPHONE ON.
  • 00:03:58.170 --> 00:04:00.130
  • I SAID, "WOW! VICTORIA, YOU
  • 00:04:00.130 --> 00:04:01.160
  • LOOK GREAT. YOU LOOK SO
  • 00:04:01.160 --> 00:04:02.240
  • BEAUTIFUL TODAY."
  • 00:04:02.240 --> 00:04:04.070
  • SHE THANKED ME.
  • 00:04:04.070 --> 00:04:05.250
  • LATER THAT MORNING WE WERE IN
  • 00:04:05.250 --> 00:04:07.040
  • THE SAME ROOM GETTING PREPARED
  • 00:04:07.040 --> 00:04:08.290
  • FOR THE SECOND SUNDAY MORNING
  • 00:04:08.290 --> 00:04:10.060
  • SERVICE. JUST AS WE WERE ABOUT
  • 00:04:10.060 --> 00:04:12.030
  • TO WALK OUT SHE NUDGED ME AND
  • 00:04:12.030 --> 00:04:13.230
  • SAID, "YOU DIDN'T TELL ME I
  • 00:04:13.230 --> 00:04:15.010
  • LOOK BEAUTIFUL." (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:04:15.010 --> 00:04:17.220
  • I SAID, "OH, I THOUGHT YOU
  • 00:04:17.220 --> 00:04:18.090
  • WOULD REMEMBER FROM TWO HOURS
  • 00:04:18.090 --> 00:04:19.080
  • AGO." (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:04:19.090 --> 00:04:22.090
  • EVERY TIME I WALK OFF THIS
  • 00:04:22.090 --> 00:04:23.120
  • PLATFORM VICTORIA SAYS, "JOEL,
  • 00:04:23.120 --> 00:04:25.070
  • THAT WAS A GREAT MESSAGE TODAY."
  • 00:04:25.070 --> 00:04:27.050
  • I KNOW SHE THINKS I'M GREAT.
  • 00:04:27.050 --> 00:04:29.040
  • SHE'S TOLD ME A THOUSAND TIMES.
  • 00:04:29.040 --> 00:04:30.280
  • BUT MY ATTITUDE IS, "KEEP THE
  • 00:04:30.280 --> 00:04:32.030
  • CARDS AND LETTERS COMING."
  • 00:04:32.030 --> 00:04:33.160
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:04:33.160 --> 00:04:35.000
  • ONE TIME WHEN I FINISHED
  • 00:04:35.000 --> 00:04:35.270
  • SPEAKING SHE SAID, "JOEL, THAT
  • 00:04:35.270 --> 00:04:37.010
  • WAS MAGNIFICENT TODAY."
  • 00:04:37.010 --> 00:04:39.050
  • I WALKED OUT ON CLOUD NINE.
  • 00:04:39.050 --> 00:04:41.180
  • THE NEXT WEEK SHE WENT BACK TO,
  • 00:04:41.180 --> 00:04:42.100
  • "THAT WAS GREAT TODAY."
  • 00:04:42.100 --> 00:04:44.060
  • I WAS OFFENDED. (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:04:44.060 --> 00:04:46.260
  • BUT I WONDER HOW MANY
  • 00:04:46.260 --> 00:04:47.270
  • RELATIONSHIPS WOULD GO TO A NEW
  • 00:04:47.270 --> 00:04:49.270
  • LEVEL? HOW MANY MARRIAGES COULD
  • 00:04:49.270 --> 00:04:51.260
  • BE SAVED? HOW MUCH ARGUING AND
  • 00:04:51.260 --> 00:04:53.270
  • PETTY STRIFE WOULD STOP IF WE
  • 00:04:53.270 --> 00:04:56.170
  • WOULD SIMPLY START EXPRESSING
  • 00:04:56.170 --> 00:04:58.170
  • OUR LOVE ON A DAILY BASIS?
  • 00:04:58.170 --> 00:05:01.180
  • I'VE LEARNED YESTERDAY'S "I LOVE
  • 00:05:01.180 --> 00:05:03.040
  • YOU, IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR
  • 00:05:03.040 --> 00:05:04.250
  • TODAY. EVERY DAY YOU NEED TO
  • 00:05:04.250 --> 00:05:06.220
  • EXPRESS IT.
  • 00:05:06.220 --> 00:05:08.170
  • AND ONE OF THE BEST WAYS IS WITH
  • 00:05:08.170 --> 00:05:09.220
  • OUR WORDS, WITH COMPLIMENTS.
  • 00:05:09.220 --> 00:05:11.250
  • DO YOU KNOW PEOPLE DON'T KNOW
  • 00:05:11.250 --> 00:05:13.230
  • WHAT YOU'RE THINKING?
  • 00:05:13.230 --> 00:05:16.030
  • VICTORIA COULD HAVE THOUGHT ALL
  • 00:05:16.030 --> 00:05:16.290
  • DAY LONG, "THAT SURE WAS A GOOD
  • 00:05:16.290 --> 00:05:18.140
  • MESSAGE" BUT HER THOUGHTS WERE
  • 00:05:18.140 --> 00:05:20.020
  • NOT BLESSING ME.
  • 00:05:20.020 --> 00:05:22.220
  • A BLESSING IS NOT A BLESSING
  • 00:05:22.220 --> 00:05:24.180
  • UNTIL IT'S SPOKEN. YOU HAVE TO
  • 00:05:24.180 --> 00:05:26.100
  • EXPRESS IT. TELL THEM WHAT
  • 00:05:26.100 --> 00:05:27.240
  • YOU'RE THINKING.
  • 00:05:27.240 --> 00:05:29.150
  • WORDS HAVE CREATIVE POWER.
  • 00:05:29.150 --> 00:05:31.080
  • WORDS CAN LIFT PEOPLE.
  • 00:05:31.080 --> 00:05:33.200
  • THEY CAN BRING OUT CONFIDENCE,
  • 00:05:33.200 --> 00:05:35.080
  • SELF-WORTH.
  • 00:05:35.080 --> 00:05:37.000
  • WHEN YOU TELL SOMEONE, "HEY, I'M
  • 00:05:37.000 --> 00:05:38.150
  • PROUD OF YOU. YOU'RE A GIFT IN
  • 00:05:38.150 --> 00:05:39.240
  • MY LIFE."
  • 00:05:39.240 --> 00:05:41.130
  • "HONEY, IF I HAD TO DO IT ALL
  • 00:05:41.130 --> 00:05:42.150
  • OVER I'D MARRY YOU AGAIN IN A
  • 00:05:42.150 --> 00:05:44.150
  • SPLIT SECOND."
  • 00:05:44.150 --> 00:05:46.110
  • THOSE ARE NOT JUST NICE PHRASES.
  • 00:05:46.110 --> 00:05:48.130
  • THOSE WORDS ARE LIKE GLUE. THEY
  • 00:05:48.130 --> 00:05:50.240
  • STRENGTHEN THE RELATIONSHIP.
  • 00:05:50.240 --> 00:05:52.250
  • THEY'RE DEEPENING THE ROOTS.
  • 00:05:52.250 --> 00:05:54.240
  • THAT'S WHAT MAKES IT EASIER TO
  • 00:05:54.240 --> 00:05:56.040
  • GO THROUGH THE DIFFICULT TIMES
  • 00:05:56.040 --> 00:05:57.060
  • OF LIFE.
  • 00:05:57.060 --> 00:05:59.000
  • WHEN PEOPLE KNOW YOU BELIEVE IN
  • 00:05:59.000 --> 00:06:00.020
  • THEM, YOU'RE PROUD OF THEM, WHEN
  • 00:06:00.020 --> 00:06:01.200
  • YOU KEEP THE EMOTIONAL ACCOUNTS
  • 00:06:01.200 --> 00:06:03.290
  • FULL, THEN WHEN YOU HIT A BUMP
  • 00:06:03.290 --> 00:06:06.030
  • IN THE ROAD, YOU HAVE THE
  • 00:06:06.030 --> 00:06:07.110
  • STRENGTH TO STICK TOGETHER AND
  • 00:06:07.110 --> 00:06:08.230
  • OVERCOME IT.
  • 00:06:08.230 --> 00:06:10.200
  • BUT THE REASON SOME PEOPLE,
  • 00:06:10.200 --> 00:06:11.260
  • THEY SPLIT APART SO EASILY,
  • 00:06:11.260 --> 00:06:13.200
  • THEY CAN'T WITHSTAND THE
  • 00:06:13.200 --> 00:06:14.250
  • SMALLEST ADVERSITY, IS BECAUSE
  • 00:06:14.250 --> 00:06:16.220
  • THEY DON'T HAVE ANY GLUE.
  • 00:06:16.250 --> 00:06:19.250
  • THEY DON'T HAVE KIND WORDS.
  • 00:06:19.250 --> 00:06:21.280
  • THEY'RE NOT EXPRESSING THEIR
  • 00:06:21.280 --> 00:06:22.190
  • LOVE.
  • 00:06:22.190 --> 00:06:24.090
  • WHEN YOU TELL YOUR SPOUSE
  • 00:06:24.090 --> 00:06:25.160
  • SOMETHING AS SIMPLE AS, "HONEY,
  • 00:06:25.160 --> 00:06:26.210
  • I LOVE YOU," YOU ARE SPEAKING
  • 00:06:26.210 --> 00:06:28.220
  • THE BLESSING OVER YOUR MARRIAGE.
  • 00:06:28.220 --> 00:06:31.050
  • YOU ARE ADDING MORE GLUE.
  • 00:06:31.050 --> 00:06:32.260
  • LADIES, ONE OF YOUR HUSBAND'S
  • 00:06:32.260 --> 00:06:34.240
  • GREATEST NEEDS IS FOR YOU TO BE
  • 00:06:34.240 --> 00:06:36.190
  • PROUD OF HIM. HE MAY SEEM BIG,
  • 00:06:36.190 --> 00:06:39.120
  • STRONG, INVINCIBLE, LIKE HE
  • 00:06:39.120 --> 00:06:41.140
  • DOESN'T NEED ANYTHING BUT
  • 00:06:41.140 --> 00:06:43.200
  • UNDERNEATH THAT TOUGH OUTER
  • 00:06:43.200 --> 00:06:45.030
  • SHELL IS A LITTLE BOY LONGING
  • 00:06:45.030 --> 00:06:47.080
  • FOR YOUR APPROVAL.
  • 00:06:47.080 --> 00:06:49.060
  • ONE OF THE MOST POWERFUL THINGS
  • 00:06:49.060 --> 00:06:50.130
  • YOU CAN TELL YOUR HUSBAND IS,
  • 00:06:50.130 --> 00:06:52.030
  • "I AM PROUD OF YOU."
  • 00:06:52.030 --> 00:06:54.060
  • WHEN THAT MAN HEARS THAT YOU'RE
  • 00:06:54.060 --> 00:06:55.170
  • PROUD SOMETHING COMES ALIVE ON
  • 00:06:55.170 --> 00:06:57.170
  • THE INSIDE. THIS IS SOMETHING
  • 00:06:57.170 --> 00:06:59.190
  • ONLY YOU CAN GIVE AS HIS WIFE.
  • 00:07:00.030 --> 00:07:03.030
  • HIS PARENTS CAN BE PROUD OF HIM
  • 00:07:03.030 --> 00:07:04.270
  • AND THAT'S GOOD. THEY SHOULD
  • 00:07:04.270 --> 00:07:05.250
  • BE.
  • 00:07:05.250 --> 00:07:06.220
  • HIS COLLEAGUES CAN GIVE HIM
  • 00:07:06.220 --> 00:07:07.200
  • AWARDS. THAT'S NICE.
  • 00:07:07.200 --> 00:07:09.050
  • HIS FRIENDS CAN TELL HOW AMAZING
  • 00:07:09.050 --> 00:07:10.110
  • HE IS. THAT'S FINE.
  • 00:07:10.110 --> 00:07:12.160
  • BUT NOTHING COMPARES TO THE
  • 00:07:12.160 --> 00:07:14.210
  • POWER YOU HAVE AS HIS WIFE TO
  • 00:07:14.210 --> 00:07:16.200
  • TELL HIM, "I'M PROUD OF YOU."
  • 00:07:16.200 --> 00:07:18.230
  • WHEN YOU DO THAT, THAT DOES MORE
  • 00:07:18.230 --> 00:07:20.020
  • THAN ALL OF THE OTHERS COMBINED.
  • 00:07:20.060 --> 00:07:23.060
  • STUDIES SHOW US HAVING A WIFE
  • 00:07:23.060 --> 00:07:24.170
  • THAT'S PROUD IS AT THE TOP OF
  • 00:07:24.170 --> 00:07:26.050
  • THE LIST OF WHAT EVERY MALE
  • 00:07:26.050 --> 00:07:28.190
  • LONGS FOR.
  • 00:07:28.190 --> 00:07:30.020
  • WOMEN, DON'T WITHHOLD YOUR
  • 00:07:30.020 --> 00:07:31.050
  • BLESSING. JUST AS YOU LIKE TO
  • 00:07:31.050 --> 00:07:33.270
  • HEAR, "YOU'RE BEAUTIFUL. I LOVE
  • 00:07:33.270 --> 00:07:35.020
  • YOU," YOUR HUSBAND NEEDS
  • 00:07:35.020 --> 00:07:36.180
  • TO HEAR, "I'M PROUD OF YOU."
  • 00:07:36.180 --> 00:07:39.130
  • "WELL, JOEL. I'D DO THIS IF HE
  • 00:07:39.130 --> 00:07:40.150
  • WAS MORE OF THIS AND LESS OF
  • 00:07:40.150 --> 00:07:41.220
  • THAT."
  • 00:07:41.220 --> 00:07:43.050
  • NO, DON'T FOCUS ON ALL OF HIS
  • 00:07:43.050 --> 00:07:44.040
  • FAULTS. FOCUS ON HIS GOOD
  • 00:07:44.040 --> 00:07:46.000
  • QUALITIES. THE MORE YOU PRAISE
  • 00:07:46.000 --> 00:07:48.130
  • HIM THE BETTER HE WILL DO.
  • 00:07:48.130 --> 00:07:51.000
  • YOUR HUSBAND IS LIKE A CORK
  • 00:07:51.000 --> 00:07:52.170
  • FLOATING IN THE WATER.
  • 00:07:52.170 --> 00:07:54.220
  • THE MORE HONOR YOU POUR IN, THE
  • 00:07:54.220 --> 00:07:56.200
  • MORE YOU TELL HIM THAT YOU'RE
  • 00:07:56.200 --> 00:07:57.260
  • PROUD OF HIM, IT'S JUST LIKE
  • 00:07:57.260 --> 00:07:59.230
  • YOU'RE POURING WATER INTO THAT
  • 00:07:59.230 --> 00:08:01.070
  • BUCKET. THAT CORK, YOUR
  • 00:08:01.070 --> 00:08:02.240
  • HUSBAND, WILL KEEP RISING
  • 00:08:02.240 --> 00:08:04.020
  • HIGHER AND HIGHER.
  • 00:08:04.020 --> 00:08:06.030
  • NOW, HE MAY BE DOWN RIGHT NOW
  • 00:08:06.030 --> 00:08:07.150
  • BUT INSTEAD OF NAGGING,
  • 00:08:07.150 --> 00:08:09.080
  • COMPLAINING, TRY A DIFFERENT
  • 00:08:09.080 --> 00:08:11.100
  • APPROACH. POUR SOME HONOR IN.
  • 00:08:11.100 --> 00:08:14.000
  • FIND SOMETHING HE IS DOING RIGHT
  • 00:08:14.000 --> 00:08:15.280
  • AND SAY, "HEY, I'M PROUD OF YOU
  • 00:08:15.280 --> 00:08:17.140
  • FOR BEING AT THE JOB FOR 20
  • 00:08:17.140 --> 00:08:19.190
  • YEARS. I'M PROUD OF YOU FOR
  • 00:08:19.190 --> 00:08:21.010
  • COACHING OUR CHILDREN THROUGH
  • 00:08:21.010 --> 00:08:22.100
  • SCHOOL. I'M PROUD OF YOU FOR
  • 00:08:22.100 --> 00:08:24.060
  • COMING TO CHURCH WITH OUR
  • 00:08:24.060 --> 00:08:25.120
  • FAMILY EACH SUNDAY."
  • 00:08:25.120 --> 00:08:27.120
  • HE MAY BE DOING A HUNDRED THINGS
  • 00:08:27.120 --> 00:08:29.030
  • YOU DON'T LIKE. FIND THREE
  • 00:08:29.030 --> 00:08:30.150
  • THINGS YOU DO LIKE AND START
  • 00:08:30.150 --> 00:08:32.130
  • POURING SOME HONOR IN.
  • 00:08:32.130 --> 00:08:35.130
  • LADIES, THINK ABOUT THIS. MAYBE
  • 00:08:35.130 --> 00:08:37.030
  • YOUR HUSBAND IS NOT REACHING
  • 00:08:37.030 --> 00:08:39.060
  • HIS HIGHEST POTENTIAL BECAUSE
  • 00:08:39.060 --> 00:08:41.210
  • THE HONOR LEVEL IS LOW. YOU AS
  • 00:08:41.210 --> 00:08:44.010
  • HIS WIFE CONTROL THE HONOR
  • 00:08:44.010 --> 00:08:47.000
  • FAUCET. YOU HAVE THE MOST POWER
  • 00:08:47.000 --> 00:08:48.170
  • TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.
  • 00:08:48.170 --> 00:08:50.060
  • DON'T COMPLAIN. POUR IN HONOR.
  • 00:08:51.200 --> 00:08:54.200
  • "HONEY, I'M PROUD OF YOU. YOU
  • 00:08:54.200 --> 00:08:55.260
  • MAY NOT HAVE BROKEN THE
  • 00:08:55.260 --> 00:08:57.020
  • ADDICTION ALTOGETHER BUT I'M
  • 00:08:57.020 --> 00:08:58.040
  • PROUD OF YOU FOR AT LEAST
  • 00:08:58.040 --> 00:08:59.050
  • TRYING. YOU DIDN'T GET THE
  • 00:08:59.050 --> 00:09:00.260
  • PROMOTION BUT THAT DOESN'T
  • 00:09:00.260 --> 00:09:02.140
  • CHANGE ONE THING IN MY MIND.
  • 00:09:02.140 --> 00:09:04.180
  • I'M STILL AS PROUD AS I CAN BE
  • 00:09:04.180 --> 00:09:05.200
  • OF YOU."
  • 00:09:05.200 --> 00:09:07.170
  • HERE'S A KEY LADIES. YOUR
  • 00:09:07.170 --> 00:09:09.020
  • HUSBANDS CANNOT LIVE OFF OF
  • 00:09:09.020 --> 00:09:10.170
  • OLD HONOR. YOU WERE PROUD OF
  • 00:09:10.170 --> 00:09:12.210
  • HIM WHEN HE GRADUATED FROM
  • 00:09:12.210 --> 00:09:14.160
  • COLLEGE. THAT'S GOOD BUT THAT
  • 00:09:14.160 --> 00:09:16.010
  • WAS FIVE YEARS AGO.
  • 00:09:16.010 --> 00:09:18.010
  • YOU WERE PROUD WHEN HE STEPPED
  • 00:09:18.010 --> 00:09:19.050
  • UP TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR PARENTS.
  • 00:09:19.050 --> 00:09:20.260
  • THAT'S GREAT BUT THAT WAS IN THE
  • 00:09:20.260 --> 00:09:21.210
  • PAST.
  • 00:09:21.210 --> 00:09:23.160
  • WHAT HAS HE DONE LATELY THAT YOU
  • 00:09:23.160 --> 00:09:25.180
  • CAN TELL HIM YOU'RE PROUD OF?
  • 00:09:25.180 --> 00:09:28.080
  • IF YOU WILL POUR IN SOME NEW
  • 00:09:28.080 --> 00:09:29.160
  • HONOR, NOT ONLY WILL HE RISE
  • 00:09:29.160 --> 00:09:31.180
  • HIGHER, BUT THE WHOLE FAMILY
  • 00:09:31.180 --> 00:09:32.270
  • WILL RISE HIGHER.
  • 00:09:32.270 --> 00:09:35.020
  • WHEN YOU GET UP TOMORROW MORNING
  • 00:09:35.020 --> 00:09:36.100
  • GIVE YOUR HUSBAND A BIG HUG AND
  • 00:09:36.100 --> 00:09:37.260
  • SAY, "I'M PROUD OF YOU, YOU GOOD
  • 00:09:37.260 --> 00:09:39.240
  • LOOKING THING." (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:09:39.240 --> 00:09:42.220
  • WHEN YOU PICK HIM UP OFF THE
  • 00:09:42.220 --> 00:09:43.150
  • GROUND HE WILL GO OUT WITH A
  • 00:09:43.150 --> 00:09:44.210
  • SPRING IN HIS STEP. (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:09:44.210 --> 00:09:47.130
  • BUT YOU'LL BE AMAZED AT HOW
  • 00:09:47.130 --> 00:09:48.120
  • THESE SIMPLE WORDS WILL LIFT HIS
  • 00:09:48.120 --> 00:09:50.060
  • SPIRIT. THEY'LL CAUSE HIM TO
  • 00:09:50.060 --> 00:09:51.270
  • ACCOMPLISH MORE. HE'LL HAVE A
  • 00:09:51.270 --> 00:09:53.110
  • BETTER ATTITUDE. HE'LL NOT ONLY
  • 00:09:53.110 --> 00:09:55.260
  • TREAT OTHER PEOPLE BETTER BUT
  • 00:09:55.260 --> 00:09:57.130
  • HE'LL TREAT YOU BETTER.
  • 00:09:57.130 --> 00:09:59.060
  • HE'LL GO OUT OF HIS WAY TO DO
  • 00:09:59.060 --> 00:10:00.120
  • KIND THINGS FOR YOU AND THE
  • 00:10:00.120 --> 00:10:02.010
  • CHILDREN ALL BECAUSE YOU MET ONE
  • 00:10:02.010 --> 00:10:04.060
  • OF HIS GREATEST NEEDS,
  • 00:10:04.060 --> 00:10:06.130
  • THAT LONGING FOR YOU TO BE
  • 00:10:06.130 --> 00:10:07.190
  • PROUD OF HIM.
  • 00:10:07.190 --> 00:10:09.150
  • IN THE SAME WAY, MEN, YOUR WIFE
  • 00:10:09.150 --> 00:10:11.040
  • NEEDS YOUR APPROVAL. SHE NEEDS
  • 00:10:11.040 --> 00:10:13.160
  • YOUR BLESSING. THIS IS VITAL TO
  • 00:10:13.160 --> 00:10:16.130
  • HER BECOMING WHO GOD CREATED
  • 00:10:16.130 --> 00:10:18.060
  • HER TO BE. AND GOD IS GOING TO
  • 00:10:18.060 --> 00:10:20.100
  • HOLD THE MEN RESPONSIBLE AS THE
  • 00:10:20.100 --> 00:10:22.230
  • SPIRITUAL AUTHORITY IN THE HOME
  • 00:10:22.230 --> 00:10:25.190
  • FOR BLESSING OUR WIVES.
  • 00:10:25.210 --> 00:10:28.210
  • THAT MEANS TO BUILD HER UP, TO
  • 00:10:28.210 --> 00:10:29.230
  • MAKE SURE SHE FEELS LOVED,
  • 00:10:29.230 --> 00:10:32.080
  • VALUED AND RESPECTED.
  • 00:10:32.080 --> 00:10:34.120
  • I KNOW MEN, THEY NEVER GIVE
  • 00:10:34.120 --> 00:10:35.240
  • THEIR WIFE THE BLESSING.
  • 00:10:35.240 --> 00:10:37.290
  • THESE WOMEN ONLY HEAR ABOUT WHAT
  • 00:10:37.290 --> 00:10:39.060
  • THEY'RE DOING WRONG, HOW
  • 00:10:39.060 --> 00:10:40.130
  • THE DINNER WAS LATE, THE KIDS
  • 00:10:40.130 --> 00:10:41.290
  • ARE TOO LOUD, HOW THEY'RE NOT
  • 00:10:41.290 --> 00:10:43.140
  • THAT ATTRACTIVE.
  • 00:10:43.140 --> 00:10:45.050
  • MEN, YOU'RE NOT GOING TO BE
  • 00:10:45.050 --> 00:10:46.140
  • BLESSED IF YOU'RE PUSHING YOUR
  • 00:10:46.140 --> 00:10:47.170
  • WIFE DOWN. SHE'S CONNECTED TO
  • 00:10:47.170 --> 00:10:49.090
  • YOU. IF YOU SAY DISRESPECTFUL,
  • 00:10:49.090 --> 00:10:51.240
  • DEMEANING THINGS, YOU'RE NOT
  • 00:10:51.240 --> 00:10:53.230
  • ONLY PUSHING HER DOWN, YOU'RE
  • 00:10:53.230 --> 00:10:55.080
  • PUSHING YOURSELF DOWN.
  • 00:10:55.080 --> 00:10:58.070
  • MANY WOMEN SUFFER FROM LOW
  • 00:10:58.070 --> 00:10:59.060
  • SELF-ESTEEM, FROM DEPRESSION,
  • 00:10:59.060 --> 00:11:00.270
  • BECAUSE THEY NEVER RECEIVE THE
  • 00:11:00.270 --> 00:11:03.050
  • BLESSING FROM THEIR HUSBAND.
  • 00:11:03.050 --> 00:11:05.050
  • MEN, DON'T LET THAT BE YOUR
  • 00:11:05.050 --> 00:11:06.110

  • 00:16:33.070 --> 00:16:36.070
  • WHAT YOU NEED. NO PERSON HAS
  • 00:16:36.070 --> 00:16:38.030
  • 100%.
  • 00:16:38.030 --> 00:16:40.190
  • IF YOU'RE NOT CAREFUL YOU'LL
  • 00:16:40.190 --> 00:16:41.220
  • FOCUS ON THE 20% THAT THEY DON'T
  • 00:16:41.220 --> 00:16:43.270
  • HAVE, WHAT YOU DON'T LIKE AND
  • 00:16:43.270 --> 00:16:45.060
  • YOU'LL END UP FRUSTRATED.
  • 00:16:45.060 --> 00:16:47.170
  • SOME PEOPLE EVEN LEAVE THE 80 TO
  • 00:16:47.170 --> 00:16:49.070
  • GO FIND THE 20 IN SOMEBODY ELSE.
  • 00:16:49.070 --> 00:16:51.170
  • BUT THEY'LL SOON REALIZE THAT
  • 00:16:51.170 --> 00:16:53.150
  • PERSON IS MISSING 20% AS WELL.
  • 00:16:53.250 --> 00:16:56.250
  • IT'S BETTER TO STICK WITH WHO
  • 00:16:56.250 --> 00:16:57.290
  • YOU'VE GOT, SEE THEIR GOOD
  • 00:16:57.290 --> 00:16:59.080
  • QUALITIES, THE 80% OF WHAT THEY
  • 00:16:59.080 --> 00:17:00.260
  • DO HAVE.
  • 00:17:00.260 --> 00:17:02.140
  • IN THE SCRIPTURE...(APPLAUSE)
  • 00:17:02.140 --> 00:17:04.120
  • ...IT SAYS THAT BECAUSE SOLOMON
  • 00:17:04.120 --> 00:17:05.170
  • PRAISED HIS WIFE THEIR CHILDREN
  • 00:17:05.170 --> 00:17:07.200
  • ROSE UP AND BLESSED HER AS WELL.
  • 00:17:08.100 --> 00:17:11.100
  • IN OTHER WORDS, WHEN THE HUSBAND
  • 00:17:11.100 --> 00:17:12.170
  • TAKES THE LEAD AND BLESSES THE
  • 00:17:12.170 --> 00:17:14.130
  • WIFE THE CHILDREN WILL AS WELL.
  • 00:17:14.240 --> 00:17:17.240
  • HUSBANDS, FATHER, WE'RE SETTING
  • 00:17:17.240 --> 00:17:19.150
  • THE EXAMPLE IN THE HOME.
  • 00:17:19.150 --> 00:17:21.080
  • HOW WE TREAT OUR WIFE IS GOING
  • 00:17:21.080 --> 00:17:23.080
  • TO HAVE A GREAT IMPACT ON HOW
  • 00:17:23.080 --> 00:17:25.110
  • OUR CHILDREN RESPECT AND HONOR
  • 00:17:25.110 --> 00:17:27.210
  • THEIR MOTHER.
  • 00:17:27.210 --> 00:17:29.010
  • MEN, GO OUT OF YOUR WAY TO SHOW
  • 00:17:29.010 --> 00:17:30.170
  • RESPECT TO YOUR WIFE. TREAT HER
  • 00:17:30.170 --> 00:17:32.180
  • LIKE YOU WANT SOMEBODY TO TREAT
  • 00:17:32.180 --> 00:17:34.100
  • YOUR DAUGHTER.
  • 00:17:34.100 --> 00:17:35.250
  • LADIES, TREAT YOUR HUSBANDS LIKE
  • 00:17:35.250 --> 00:17:37.130
  • YOU WANT SOMEBODY TO TREAT YOUR
  • 00:17:37.130 --> 00:17:38.270
  • OWN SON.
  • 00:17:38.270 --> 00:17:40.220
  • I'VE HEARD IT SAID, "IF YOU SEE
  • 00:17:40.220 --> 00:17:42.070
  • A MAN OPENING THE CAR DOOR FOR
  • 00:17:42.070 --> 00:17:44.030
  • HIS WIFE THAT MEANS HE EITHER
  • 00:17:44.030 --> 00:17:45.180
  • HAS A NEW CAR OR A NEW WIFE."
  • 00:17:45.180 --> 00:17:48.090
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:17:48.090 --> 00:17:50.070
  • BUT MEN, WE NEED TO GET BACK TO
  • 00:17:50.070 --> 00:17:51.180
  • THE DAYS OF RESPECT AND HONOR.
  • 00:17:51.180 --> 00:17:54.040
  • IT TAKES A MAN TO OPEN THE DOOR
  • 00:17:54.040 --> 00:17:55.170
  • FOR HIS WIFE. (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:17:55.170 --> 00:17:57.230
  • IT TAKES A MAN TO SAY, "I LOVE
  • 00:17:57.230 --> 00:17:59.080
  • YOU. YOU'RE BEAUTIFUL. I'M
  • 00:17:59.080 --> 00:18:01.010
  • PROUD OF YOU." (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:18:01.010 --> 00:18:03.130
  • YOU'RE NOT A MAN JUST BECAUSE
  • 00:18:03.130 --> 00:18:04.170
  • YOU'RE MALE. TREATING YOUR WIFE
  • 00:18:04.170 --> 00:18:05.240
  • WITH RESPECT MAKES YOU A MAN.
  • 00:18:05.240 --> 00:18:08.170
  • TAKING CARE OF YOUR FAMILY MAKES
  • 00:18:08.170 --> 00:18:10.010
  • YOU A MAN.
  • 00:18:10.010 --> 00:18:11.170
  • WATCHING AFTER YOUR CHILDREN,
  • 00:18:11.170 --> 00:18:12.200
  • THAT'S WHAT REALLY MAKES YOU A
  • 00:18:12.200 --> 00:18:13.180
  • MAN.
  • 00:18:13.180 --> 00:18:15.060
  • IT'S INTERESTING.
  • 00:18:15.060 --> 00:18:16.070
  • IN REPRODUCTION THE FATHER IS
  • 00:18:16.070 --> 00:18:17.270
  • THE ONE THAT GIVES THE CHILD
  • 00:18:17.270 --> 00:18:19.080
  • IDENTITY. THE FEMALE HAS TWO
  • 00:18:19.080 --> 00:18:21.220
  • X CHROMOSOMES. THE MALE HAS AN
  • 00:18:21.220 --> 00:18:23.210
  • X AND A Y CHROMOSOME.
  • 00:18:23.210 --> 00:18:26.200
  • IF THE MALE GIVES THE FEMALE
  • 00:18:26.200 --> 00:18:27.290
  • ANOTHER X THE BABY WILL BE A
  • 00:18:27.290 --> 00:18:30.000
  • GIRL. IF HE GIVES HER A Y IT
  • 00:18:30.000 --> 00:18:31.290
  • WILL BE A BOY. BUT THE FEMALE
  • 00:18:31.290 --> 00:18:33.170
  • HAS NO POWER TO DETERMINE THE
  • 00:18:33.170 --> 00:18:35.010
  • SEX OF THE CHILD. THE IDENTITY
  • 00:18:35.010 --> 00:18:37.230
  • ALWAYS COMES FROM THE FATHER.
  • 00:18:38.100 --> 00:18:41.100
  • I BELIEVE NOT ONLY PHYSICALLY
  • 00:18:41.100 --> 00:18:43.110
  • BUT GOD HAS GIVEN US POWER AS
  • 00:18:43.110 --> 00:18:45.160
  • FATHERS TO HELP OUR CHILDREN
  • 00:18:45.160 --> 00:18:47.200
  • KNOW WHO THEY ARE. WE HAVE
  • 00:18:47.200 --> 00:18:49.100
  • INCREDIBLE INFLUENCE IN OUR
  • 00:18:49.100 --> 00:18:51.030
  • CHILDREN'S LIVES. FATHERS, WE
  • 00:18:51.030 --> 00:18:52.230
  • HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY TO AFFIRM
  • 00:18:52.230 --> 00:18:54.200
  • OUR CHILDREN.
  • 00:18:54.200 --> 00:18:56.210
  • EVERY DAY, "I'M PROUD OF YOU.
  • 00:18:56.210 --> 00:18:58.020
  • YOU'RE GOING TO DO SOMETHING
  • 00:18:58.020 --> 00:18:59.070
  • GREAT. YOU'VE GOT AN AMAZING
  • 00:18:59.070 --> 00:19:00.070
  • FUTURE."
  • 00:19:00.070 --> 00:19:01.230
  • OUR CHILDREN NEED OUR APPROVAL.
  • 00:19:01.230 --> 00:19:04.130
  • WE'RE HELPING THEM TO FORM THEIR
  • 00:19:04.130 --> 00:19:05.250
  • IDENTITY. BUT IF WE'RE TOO
  • 00:19:05.250 --> 00:19:08.000
  • BUSY, WE'RE NEVER THERE, THAT
  • 00:19:08.000 --> 00:19:09.070
  • CHILD IS NOT GOING TO BE AS
  • 00:19:09.070 --> 00:19:10.270
  • CONFIDENT AND SECURE AS HE
  • 00:19:10.270 --> 00:19:12.100
  • SHOULD BE.
  • 00:19:12.100 --> 00:19:13.240
  • FATHERS, BE INVOLVED IN YOUR
  • 00:19:13.240 --> 00:19:15.170
  • CHILDREN'S LIFE. BRING THEM TO
  • 00:19:15.170 --> 00:19:17.080
  • CHURCH. BE AT THEIR BALLGAMES.
  • 00:19:17.080 --> 00:19:19.040
  • MEET THEIR TEACHERS. KNOW WHO
  • 00:19:19.040 --> 00:19:22.030
  • THEIR FRIENDS ARE. LISTEN TO
  • 00:19:22.030 --> 00:19:24.000
  • WHAT THEY'RE LISTENING TO.
  • 00:19:24.000 --> 00:19:25.180
  • PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT THEY'RE
  • 00:19:25.180 --> 00:19:26.230
  • WATCHING. THEY MAY NOT LIKE IT
  • 00:19:26.230 --> 00:19:29.000
  • BUT A CHILD THAT HAS
  • 00:19:29.000 --> 00:19:30.160
  • BOUNDARIES, DEEP DOWN, THAT
  • 00:19:30.160 --> 00:19:32.080
  • CHILD KNOWS THAT HE'S LOVED.
  • 00:19:32.080 --> 00:19:34.060
  • THAT'S WHAT GIVES HIM VALUE.
  • 00:19:34.060 --> 00:19:36.040
  • FATHERS, WHEN THAT YOUNG MAN
  • 00:19:36.040 --> 00:19:37.240
  • COMES OVER TO TAKE YOUR DAUGHTER
  • 00:19:37.240 --> 00:19:39.050
  • ON A DATE BE THE FIRST ONE AT
  • 00:19:39.050 --> 00:19:40.190
  • THE DOOR. PUT THE SHOTGUN DOWN
  • 00:19:40.190 --> 00:19:42.260
  • BUT BE THERE...(LAUGHER)
  • 00:19:42.260 --> 00:19:45.130
  • ...TO LET HIM KNOW THERE'S A MAN
  • 00:19:45.130 --> 00:19:47.060
  • IN THE HOUSE WATCHING AFTER THIS
  • 00:19:47.060 --> 00:19:48.190
  • GIRL.
  • 00:19:48.190 --> 00:19:50.130
  • A FRIEND OF MINE TOLD ME WHEN HE
  • 00:19:50.130 --> 00:19:51.180
  • WAS A TEENAGER THAT HE HAD A
  • 00:19:51.180 --> 00:19:52.270
  • DRUG PROBLEM. HE IS SO CLEAN
  • 00:19:52.270 --> 00:19:54.200
  • CUT I COULDN'T BELIEVE HE WAS
  • 00:19:54.200 --> 00:19:56.080
  • ON DRUGS. HE SAID, "YEAH, I WAS
  • 00:19:56.080 --> 00:19:57.250
  • DRUGGED TO CHURCH EVERY
  • 00:19:57.250 --> 00:19:59.130
  • WEEKEND." (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:19:59.130 --> 00:20:01.040
  • "I WAS DRUGGED TO SUNDAY
  • 00:20:01.040 --> 00:20:02.020
  • SCHOOL. I WAS DRUGGED TO YOUTH
  • 00:20:02.020 --> 00:20:03.070
  • CLASS." HE SAID, "YOU KNOW,
  • 00:20:03.070 --> 00:20:04.220
  • JOEL? THOSE DRUGS ARE STILL IN
  • 00:20:04.220 --> 00:20:06.150
  • MY VEINS. THEY STILL AFFECT

  • EVERYTHING THAT I DO."
  • 00:20:08.160 --> 00:20:10.100
  • HE WAS SAYING, "MY PARENTS
  • 00:20:10.100 --> 00:20:11.240
  • POURED INTO ME. THEY WATCHED
  • 00:20:11.240 --> 00:20:13.070
  • OVER ME."
  • 00:20:13.070 --> 00:20:14.250
  • I HEARD THE STORY ABOUT A LADY
  • 00:20:14.250 --> 00:20:16.020
  • THAT HAD LIVED A VERY
  • 00:20:16.020 --> 00:20:17.180
  • PROMISCUOUS LIFE, ONE MAN AFTER
  • 00:20:17.180 --> 00:20:19.030
  • ANOTHER, COULDN'T STAY IN A
  • 00:20:19.030 --> 00:20:20.190
  • STABLE RELATIONSHIP. A FRIEND
  • 00:20:20.190 --> 00:20:22.200
  • OF MINE IS A MINISTER AND HE
  • 00:20:22.200 --> 00:20:24.250
  • ASKED HER, "WHAT WENT WRONG?
  • 00:20:24.250 --> 00:20:25.150
  • WHERE DID YOU LOSE YOUR WAY?"
  • 00:20:25.160 --> 00:20:28.160
  • SHE TOLD HOW WHEN SHE WAS
  • 00:20:28.160 --> 00:20:29.280
  • SEVENTEEN YEARS OLD SHE WALKED
  • 00:20:29.280 --> 00:20:31.160
  • INTO HER FAMILY ROOM WEARING
  • 00:20:31.160 --> 00:20:33.080
  • HER BRAND NEW PROM DRESS,
  • 00:20:33.080 --> 00:20:35.170
  • FEELING SO SPECIAL. HER FATHER
  • 00:20:35.170 --> 00:20:37.210
  • WAS SITTING IN A CHAIR READING
  • 00:20:37.210 --> 00:20:39.090
  • THE NEWSPAPER. SHE SAID, "DAD,
  • 00:20:39.090 --> 00:20:40.180
  • WHAT DO YOU THINK?"
  • 00:20:40.180 --> 00:20:42.000
  • SHE BEGAN TO SPIN AROUND AND
  • 00:20:42.000 --> 00:20:43.090
  • AROUND DANCING, FEELING SO
  • 00:20:43.090 --> 00:20:45.000
  • SPECIAL, SO BEAUTIFUL, SO PROUD.
  • 00:20:45.080 --> 00:20:48.080
  • BUT HER FATHER NEVER LOOKED UP
  • 00:20:48.080 --> 00:20:50.250
  • FROM READING THE NEWSPAPER.
  • 00:20:50.250 --> 00:20:52.110
  • HER DANCE SLOWED DOWN A LITTLE
  • 00:20:52.110 --> 00:20:53.170
  • MORE, A LITTLE MORE, UNTIL SHE
  • 00:20:53.170 --> 00:20:54.250
  • REALIZED HER DAD WASN'T
  • 00:20:54.250 --> 00:20:56.150
  • INTERESTED, WALKED OUT OF THE
  • 00:20:56.150 --> 00:20:58.050
  • ROOM. BECAUSE SHE DIDN'T FEEL
  • 00:20:58.050 --> 00:21:00.160
  • VALUED AND APPROVED BY HER
  • 00:21:00.160 --> 00:21:02.200
  • FATHER SHE WENT THROUGH MAN
  • 00:21:02.200 --> 00:21:04.180
  • AFTER MAN TRYING TO GET THAT
  • 00:21:04.180 --> 00:21:06.080
  • APPROVAL THAT ONLY HER FATHER
  • 00:21:06.080 --> 00:21:08.030
  • COULD GIVE.
  • 00:21:08.030 --> 00:21:10.060
  • FATHERS, WE HAVE SOMETHING
  • 00:21:10.060 --> 00:21:11.170
  • EXTREMELY POWERFUL. YOUR

  • CHILDREN NEED YOUR BLESSING.
  • 00:21:13.270 --> 00:21:16.180
  • MAKE THEM A PRIORITY.
  • 00:21:16.180 --> 00:21:18.090
  • IT'S NOT AN OPTION.
  • 00:21:18.090 --> 00:21:19.200
  • IT'S A RESPONSIBILITY.
  • 00:21:19.200 --> 00:21:21.270
  • YOU HAVE SOMETHING TO GIVE AS A
  • 00:21:21.270 --> 00:21:23.070
  • FATHER THAT NOBODY ELSE CAN
  • 00:21:23.070 --> 00:21:24.290
  • GIVE. A FRIEND OF MINE WAS
  • 00:21:24.290 --> 00:21:27.130
  • WATCHING THE FOOTBALL GAME ON
  • 00:21:27.130 --> 00:21:28.220
  • TELEVISION. HIS LITTLE BOY CAME
  • 00:21:28.220 --> 00:21:30.080
  • IN AND SAID, "DAD, I'VE GOT TO

  • NEVER TOOK HIS EYES OFF THE

  • SON. WHAT DO YOU NEED?"
  • 00:21:35.080 --> 00:21:36.130
  • THE LITTLE BOY SAID, "NO, DAD.
  • 00:21:36.130 --> 00:21:37.180
  • LISTEN TO ME WITH YOUR EYES."
  • 00:21:38.030 --> 00:21:41.030
  • WHAT A GREAT PRINCIPLE.
  • 00:21:41.030 --> 00:21:42.170
  • GIVE YOUR CHILDREN YOUR

  • UNDIVIDED ATTENTION.
  • 00:21:43.260 --> 00:21:45.280
  • MAKE SURE THEY KNOW THAT THEY'RE
  • 00:21:45.280 --> 00:21:47.170
  • A PRIORITY IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:21:47.170 --> 00:21:50.060
  • WHEN OUR DAUGHTER ALEXANDRA WAS

  • OLD, SHE USED TO COME INTO MY

  • MY FATHER WENT TO BE WITH THE

  • LORD. I DIDN'T KNOW IF I COULD
  • 00:22:02.040 --> 00:22:03.180
  • DO THIS. I FELT VERY PRESSURED.
  • 00:22:03.180 --> 00:22:05.090
  • EVEN THOUGH WE TRIED TO KEEP HER
  • 00:22:05.090 --> 00:22:07.030
  • IN OTHER PARTS OF THE HOUSE, AT
  • 00:22:07.030 --> 00:22:08.150
  • LEAST ONCE OR TWICE A DAY SHE
  • 00:22:08.150 --> 00:22:09.230
  • WOULD COME IN AND SAY, "DADDY,

  • CAN WE WRASSLE?"
  • 00:22:11.090 --> 00:22:13.130
  • SHE DIDN'T WANT TO WRESTLE.
