  • THROUGH 6,
  • 00:00:23.170 --> 00:00:24.030
  • AS WE BEGIN TWO SUNDAY NIGHTS
  • 00:00:24.030 --> 00:00:26.050
  • ON THE TOPIC OF
  • 00:00:26.050 --> 00:00:27.160
  • "FAMILY BUSINESS."
  • 00:00:27.160 --> 00:00:30.050
  • I DON'T KNOW IF YOU'RE AWARE
  • 00:00:30.050 --> 00:00:30.290
  • OF THIS OR NOT,

  • BUT EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU
  • 00:00:31.190 --> 00:00:32.260
  • PLAY A ROLE
  • 00:00:32.260 --> 00:00:34.200
  • IN A FAMILY BUSINESS.
  • 00:00:34.200 --> 00:00:36.290
  • YOU ARE EITHER INVOLVED IN THE

  • PARTNERSHIP THAT IS DEVELOPING
  • 00:00:38.200 --> 00:00:40.180
  • AND PRODUCING A PRODUCT

  • OR YOU ARE THE PRODUCT
  • 00:00:42.180 --> 00:00:44.110
  • OF A FAMILY BUSINESS.
  • 00:00:44.110 --> 00:00:46.160
  • IN THE SOCIETY THAT WE LIVE
  • 00:00:46.160 --> 00:00:47.220
  • IN HERE IN THE UNITED STATES,
  • 00:00:47.220 --> 00:00:49.210
  • WE PUT A HIGH VALUE ON PEOPLE
  • 00:00:49.210 --> 00:00:51.120
  • WHO ARE SUCCESSFUL
  • 00:00:51.120 --> 00:00:52.070
  • IN BUSINESS.
  • 00:00:52.070 --> 00:00:52.260
  • WE LOOK AT INDIVIDUALS,
  • 00:00:52.260 --> 00:00:53.250
  • WHO START WITH VERY LITTLE,
  • 00:00:53.250 --> 00:00:55.020
  • AND GROW IT INTO SOMETHING
  • 00:00:55.020 --> 00:00:56.000
  • GREAT.
  • 00:00:56.000 --> 00:00:56.240
  • AND WE CALL THEM THINGS LIKE
  • 00:00:56.240 --> 00:00:58.090
  • "SELF-MADE MEN."
  • 00:00:58.090 --> 00:00:59.130
  • WE PUT THEM ON COVERS
  • 00:00:59.130 --> 00:01:00.100
  • OF MAGAZINES
  • 00:01:00.100 --> 00:01:01.080
  • AND WE TELL OTHERS
  • 00:01:01.080 --> 00:01:02.210
  • OF THEIR SUCCESS STORIES.
  • 00:01:02.210 --> 00:01:04.070
  • AND WE MEASURE IT ALL,
  • 00:01:04.070 --> 00:01:05.280
  • NOT BY WHAT THEY'VE ACHIEVED
  • 00:01:05.280 --> 00:01:07.100
  • OUTSIDE OF THE BOARD ROOM
  • 00:01:07.100 --> 00:01:08.260
  • BUT BY WHAT THEY'VE DONE
  • 00:01:08.260 --> 00:01:09.270
  • IN THE BOARD ROOM,
  • 00:01:09.270 --> 00:01:10.230
  • AND BY WHAT'S
  • 00:01:10.230 --> 00:01:11.180
  • IN THEIR BANK ACCOUNT.
  • 00:01:11.180 --> 00:01:13.050
  • WE LOOK AT BILLIONAIRES
  • 00:01:13.050 --> 00:01:14.060
  • AND WE SAY,
  • 00:01:14.060 --> 00:01:14.200
  • "THOSE PEOPLE KNOW HOW TO
  • 00:01:14.200 --> 00:01:16.130
  • SUCCEED,"
  • 00:01:16.130 --> 00:01:17.120
  • NOT CONSIDERING THAT MAYBE
  • 00:01:17.120 --> 00:01:18.250
  • MANY OF THE INDIVIDUALS
  • 00:01:18.250 --> 00:01:19.240
  • WHO GAVE THEIR ENTIRE LIFE
  • 00:01:19.240 --> 00:01:21.120
  • TO BUILDING THESE WONDERFUL
  • 00:01:21.120 --> 00:01:22.220
  • COMPANIES HAVE LOST FOUR
  • 00:01:22.220 --> 00:01:25.020
  • AND FIVE MARRIAGES AND SEVERAL
  • 00:01:25.020 --> 00:01:27.080
  • RELATIONSHIPS IN THE WAKE.
  • 00:01:27.160 --> 00:01:30.160
  • WHAT IS IT ABOUT THE WESTERN
  • 00:01:30.160 --> 00:01:31.210
  • MINDSET THAT HAS PUT SUCH
  • 00:01:31.210 --> 00:01:33.030
  • A VALUE ON THOSE WHO SUCCEED
  • 00:01:33.030 --> 00:01:35.000
  • IN BUSINESS AND THOSE WHO FAIL
  • 00:01:35.000 --> 00:01:36.170
  • AT FAMILY?
  • 00:01:37.040 --> 00:01:40.040
  • I'VE OFTEN HEARD MY FATHER SAY
  • 00:01:40.040 --> 00:01:42.090
  • THAT IF HE FAILED AS A FATHER,
  • 00:01:42.090 --> 00:01:44.070
  • HE FAILED IN LIFE.
  • 00:01:44.110 --> 00:01:47.110
  • AND I USED TO TAKE THAT VERY
  • 00:01:47.110 --> 00:01:48.220
  • HEAVILY BECAUSE I USED TO FEEL
  • 00:01:48.220 --> 00:01:50.180
  • AS IF IN SOME REGARD,
  • 00:01:50.180 --> 00:01:52.080
  • HIS SUCCESS OR HIS FAILURE
  • 00:01:52.080 --> 00:01:53.280
  • WAS MEASURED IN ME.
  • 00:01:53.280 --> 00:01:56.150
  • AND THEN WHEN I BECAME
  • 00:01:56.150 --> 00:01:57.120
  • A FATHER,
  • 00:01:57.120 --> 00:01:57.280
  • I BEGAN TO UNDERSTAND EXACTLY
  • 00:01:57.280 --> 00:01:59.170
  • WHAT HE WAS TALKING ABOUT.
  • 00:01:59.170 --> 00:02:02.120
  • HIS PRIORITY WAS NOT TO
  • 00:02:02.120 --> 00:02:04.100
  • ACCOMPLISH WHAT OTHERS MIGHT
  • 00:02:04.100 --> 00:02:05.280
  • HAVE SEEN AS HIS GREATEST
  • 00:02:05.280 --> 00:02:07.130
  • WORK.
  • 00:02:07.130 --> 00:02:07.260
  • BUT HIS PRIORITY WAS TO MAKE
  • 00:02:07.260 --> 00:02:09.160
  • SURE THAT HIS CHILDREN WERE
  • 00:02:09.160 --> 00:02:11.000
  • WELL PREPARED TO SUCCEED
  • 00:02:11.000 --> 00:02:13.100
  • IN LIFE.
  • 00:02:13.100 --> 00:02:15.060
  • AND SO WITH THE SAME AMOUNT OF
  • 00:02:15.060 --> 00:02:16.120
  • INTENSITY THAT A BUSINESSMAN
  • 00:02:16.120 --> 00:02:18.060
  • WOULD GO TO WORK EVERY DAY,
  • 00:02:18.060 --> 00:02:19.230
  • YOU AS A FATHER,
  • 00:02:19.230 --> 00:02:20.260
  • YOU AS A HUSBAND,
  • 00:02:20.260 --> 00:02:21.280
  • YOU AS A MOTHER,
  • 00:02:21.280 --> 00:02:22.240
  • YOU AS A WIFE,
  • 00:02:22.240 --> 00:02:24.060
  • HAVE TO INVEST YOURSELF EACH
  • 00:02:24.060 --> 00:02:25.290
  • AND EVERY DAY ON PURPOSE
  • 00:02:25.290 --> 00:02:28.050
  • IN YOUR FAMILY BUSINESS.
  • 00:02:28.050 --> 00:02:31.050
  • THE REASON FOR THE NEXT TWO
  • 00:02:31.050 --> 00:02:32.070
  • SUNDAYS I'M GOING TO DRAW SOME
  • 00:02:32.070 --> 00:02:33.120
  • CONNECTIONS BETWEEN MARRIAGE
  • 00:02:33.120 --> 00:02:35.050
  • AND BUSINESS IS BECAUSE,
  • 00:02:35.050 --> 00:02:36.200
  • ONE, BOTH ARE EXPENSIVE.
  • 00:02:36.200 --> 00:02:39.010
  • IF YOU BELIEVE THAT,
  • 00:02:39.010 --> 00:02:39.240
  • SAY, AMEN.
  • 00:02:39.240 --> 00:02:40.230
  • (AMEN!)
  • 00:02:40.230 --> 00:02:42.030
  • HUH, THE MEN WERE VERY WILLING
  • 00:02:42.030 --> 00:02:43.170
  • TO JUMP IN RIGHT THERE.
  • 00:02:43.170 --> 00:02:45.060
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:02:45.060 --> 00:02:46.150
  • TWO,
  • 00:02:46.150 --> 00:02:49.020
  • WHEN IT COMES TO SMALL BUSINESS,
  • 00:02:49.020 --> 00:02:51.060
  • THE SMALL BUSINESS OWNER
  • 00:02:51.060 --> 00:02:52.140
  • IS ALWAYS THE ONE
  • 00:02:52.140 --> 00:02:53.250
  • WHO IS INVESTING MORE.
  • 00:02:53.250 --> 00:02:55.210
  • HIS EMPLOYEES ARE ALWAYS
  • 00:02:55.210 --> 00:02:57.220
  • THE ONES WHO ARE LOOKING FORWARD
  • 00:02:57.220 --> 00:02:59.000
  • TO PAYDAY.
  • 00:02:59.000 --> 00:02:59.240
  • IF THERE'S NOT ENOUGH PAY
  • 00:02:59.240 --> 00:03:01.080
  • TO PAY EVERYBODY,
  • 00:03:01.080 --> 00:03:02.070
  • GUESS WHO DOESN'T GET PAID?
  • 00:03:02.070 --> 00:03:03.220
  • THE OWNER DOESN'T.
  • 00:03:03.220 --> 00:03:05.230
  • HE'S ALWAYS THE ONE WITH
  • 00:03:05.230 --> 00:03:06.250
  • THE MOST SACRIFICE,
  • 00:03:06.250 --> 00:03:08.030
  • THE MOST SKIN IN THE GAME.
  • 00:03:08.030 --> 00:03:09.160
  • BUT WHEN IT COMES TO
  • 00:03:09.160 --> 00:03:10.240
  • YOUR FAMILY, HUSBANDS AND WIVES,
  • 00:03:10.240 --> 00:03:12.190
  • YOU ARE THE ONES WHO SHOULD BE
  • 00:03:12.190 --> 00:03:13.290
  • THE MOST INVESTED IN
  • 00:03:13.290 --> 00:03:15.230
  • THE OUTCOME OF YOUR HOUSEHOLD.
  • 00:03:16.260 --> 00:03:19.260
  • IF YOU'RE NOT,
  • 00:03:19.260 --> 00:03:20.270
  • THEN SOMETHING'S WRONG.
  • 00:03:20.270 --> 00:03:23.070
  • IF YOU'VE GOT A PASTOR,
  • 00:03:23.070 --> 00:03:24.180
  • OR YOU'VE GOT A CHURCH LEADER,
  • 00:03:24.180 --> 00:03:25.230
  • OR YOU'VE GOT FRIENDS,
  • 00:03:25.230 --> 00:03:26.250
  • OR YOU'VE GOT RELATIVES
  • 00:03:26.250 --> 00:03:28.040
  • THAT ARE MORE CONCERNED ABOUT
  • 00:03:28.040 --> 00:03:29.090
  • THE OUTCOME OF YOUR MARRIAGE
  • 00:03:29.090 --> 00:03:30.210
  • THAN YOU ARE,
  • 00:03:30.210 --> 00:03:31.190
  • SOMETHING'S BACKWARDS.
  • 00:03:32.230 --> 00:03:35.230
  • THERE'S SO MANY DIFFERENT
  • 00:03:35.230 --> 00:03:36.190
  • CONNECTIONS THAT WE CAN DRAW
  • 00:03:36.190 --> 00:03:38.070
  • BETWEEN BUSINESS AND FAMILY;
  • 00:03:38.070 --> 00:03:39.290
  • THAT BY THE TIME WE'RE THROUGH
  • 00:03:39.290 --> 00:03:41.070
  • WITH THESE TWO SUNDAYS,
  • 00:03:41.070 --> 00:03:42.090
  • YOU'RE GOING TO RECOGNIZE THAT
  • 00:03:42.090 --> 00:03:43.210
  • YOU ARE IN A FAMILY BUSINESS
  • 00:03:44.220 --> 00:03:47.220
  • WHETHER YOU WANT TO BE OR NOT.
  • 00:03:47.220 --> 00:03:50.220
  • HERE'S WHAT JESUS CHRIST HAD
  • 00:03:50.220 --> 00:03:52.040
  • TO SAY ABOUT MARRIAGE.
  • 00:03:52.040 --> 00:03:53.160
  • MATTHEW 19:1 THROUGH 6.
  • 00:03:53.160 --> 00:03:55.230
  • IF YOU'RE THERE, SAY, AMEN.
  • 00:03:55.230 --> 00:03:57.060
  • (AMEN.)
  • 00:03:57.060 --> 00:03:58.100
  • AND NOW IT CAME TO PASS
  • 00:03:58.100 --> 00:03:59.120
  • WHEN JESUS HAD FINISHED
  • 00:03:59.120 --> 00:04:00.100
  • THESE SAYINGS,
  • 00:04:00.100 --> 00:04:01.110
  • THAT HE DEPARTED FROM GALILEE,
  • 00:04:01.110 --> 00:04:02.210
  • AND HE CAME TO THE REGION
  • 00:04:02.210 --> 00:04:03.170
  • OF JUDEA BEYOND THE JORDAN.
  • 00:04:03.170 --> 00:04:05.240
  • AND GREAT MULTITUDES FOLLOWED
  • 00:04:05.240 --> 00:04:07.020
  • HIM, AND HE HEALED THEM THERE.
  • 00:04:07.030 --> 00:04:10.030
  • AND PHARISEES ALSO CAME TO HIM,
  • 00:04:10.030 --> 00:04:13.020
  • TESTING HIM,
  • 00:04:13.020 --> 00:04:14.210
  • AND SAYING TO HIM,
  • 00:04:14.210 --> 00:04:16.220
  • "IS IT LAWFUL FOR A MAN
  • 00:04:16.220 --> 00:04:18.140
  • TO DIVORCE HIS WIFE
  • 00:04:18.140 --> 00:04:20.080
  • FOR JUST ANY REASON?"
  • 00:04:20.080 --> 00:04:22.250
  • AND HE ANSWERED,
  • 00:04:22.250 --> 00:04:23.220
  • AND HE SAID TO THEM,
  • 00:04:23.220 --> 00:04:26.050
  • "HAVE YOU NOT READ THAT HE WHO
  • 00:04:26.120 --> 00:04:29.120
  • MADE THEM AT THE BEGINNING
  • 00:04:29.180 --> 00:04:32.180
  • MADE THEM --
  • 00:04:32.180 --> 00:04:33.130
  • SAY THIS WITH ME.
  • 00:04:33.130 --> 00:04:34.270
  • -- MALE AND FEMALE.
  • 00:04:34.280 --> 00:04:37.280
  • AND SAID, "FOR THIS REASON,
  • 00:04:38.110 --> 00:04:41.110
  • A MAN SHALL LEAVE HIS FATHER
  • 00:04:41.140 --> 00:04:44.140
  • AND MOTHER,
  • 00:04:44.140 --> 00:04:45.210
  • AND BE JOINED TO HIS WIFE.
  • 00:04:45.210 --> 00:04:48.030
  • AND THE TWO SHALL BECOME
  • 00:04:48.030 --> 00:04:50.070
  • ONE FLESH.
  • 00:04:50.070 --> 00:04:51.150
  • NOW READ VERSE 6 WITH ME: SO
  • 00:04:51.150 --> 00:04:53.190
  • THEN THEY ARE NO LONGER TWO
  • 00:04:53.200 --> 00:04:56.200
  • BUT ONE FLESH; THEREFORE,
  • 00:04:56.200 --> 00:04:59.200
  • WHAT GOD HAS JOINED TOGETHER,
  • 00:04:59.200 --> 00:05:02.070
  • LET NO MAN SEPARATE.
  • 00:05:02.070 --> 00:05:05.000
  • SAY THAT LAST LINE AGAIN.
  • 00:05:05.000 --> 00:05:06.180
  • WHAT GOD HAS JOINED TOGETHER,
  • 00:05:06.180 --> 00:05:09.100
  • LET NO MAN SEPARATE.
  • 00:05:09.100 --> 00:05:12.090
  • HERE WE HAVE A CHART.
  • 00:05:12.090 --> 00:05:14.060
  • IF WE WERE IN A BOARD ROOM,
  • 00:05:14.060 --> 00:05:15.050
  • WE'D MAKE A PRESENTATION
  • 00:05:15.050 --> 00:05:16.130
  • AND WE WOULD INTRODUCE
  • 00:05:16.130 --> 00:05:17.260
  • THE PARTNERS WHO ARE INVOLVED
  • 00:05:17.260 --> 00:05:19.180
  • IN THIS FAMILY BUSINESS.
  • 00:05:19.180 --> 00:05:20.240
  • THEY'RE 50/50 OWNERS.
  • 00:05:20.240 --> 00:05:22.110
  • THEY'RE BOTH INVOLVED
  • 00:05:22.110 --> 00:05:23.210
  • IN PRODUCTION.
  • 00:05:23.210 --> 00:05:24.260
  • ONE, AS YOU CAN SEE,
  • 00:05:24.260 --> 00:05:26.070
  • IS VERY MUCH A MALE.
  • 00:05:26.070 --> 00:05:28.110
  • AND THE OTHER, AS YOU CAN SEE,
  • 00:05:28.110 --> 00:05:29.240
  • IS VERY MUCH A --

  • OH, THANK YOU, JESUS.
  • 00:05:32.130 --> 00:05:33.240
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:05:33.240 --> 00:05:35.060
  • THESE TWO PARTNERS BOTH HAVE
  • 00:05:35.140 --> 00:05:38.140
  • ROLES TO PLAY.
  • 00:05:38.140 --> 00:05:40.110
  • AND LIKE GOOD PARTNERS,
  • 00:05:40.110 --> 00:05:41.270
  • THEY DO NOT COMPETE WITH
  • 00:05:41.270 --> 00:05:43.050
  • EACH OTHER;
  • 00:05:43.050 --> 00:05:43.250
  • THEY COMPLEMENT EACH OTHER.
  • 00:05:43.250 --> 00:05:46.010
  • IN EVERY SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS
  • 00:05:46.010 --> 00:05:47.160
  • THAT IS A PARTNERSHIP,

  • NOT ONLY IS THERE AN EQUAL
  • 00:05:48.220 --> 00:05:50.180
  • INVESTMENT FROM BOTH SIDES,
  • 00:05:50.180 --> 00:05:52.220
  • BUT BOTH UNDERSTAND WHAT

  • TO EXPECT FROM THE OVER.
  • 00:05:54.100 --> 00:05:55.260
  • AND THEY DON'T EXPECT
  • 00:05:55.260 --> 00:05:57.080
  • THE SAME THING.
  • 00:05:57.080 --> 00:05:59.180
  • WHENEVER YOU SEE ATTORNEYS
  • 00:05:59.180 --> 00:06:01.040
  • THAT HAVE MULTIPLE NAMES
  • 00:06:01.040 --> 00:06:02.210
  • ACROSS THE DOOR AND THEY'VE
  • 00:06:02.210 --> 00:06:04.050
  • GOT ALL OF THESE DIFFERENT

  • "I WOULD LIKE AN ATTORNEY,"
  • 00:06:09.140 --> 00:06:10.190
  • THEY'LL ASK YOU,

  • "WHAT KIND DO YOU WANT?"
  • 00:06:11.130 --> 00:06:13.180
  • YOU SAY,

  • "HOPEFULLY A GOOD ONE."
  • 00:06:14.080 --> 00:06:15.120
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:06:15.120 --> 00:06:16.200
  • AND WHAT THEY MEAN BY
  • 00:06:16.200 --> 00:06:17.250
  • ANSWERING THAT QUESTION IS
  • 00:06:17.250 --> 00:06:19.030
  • ONE WILL SPECIALIZE IN FAMILY

  • IN COURT CASES,
  • 00:06:23.020 --> 00:06:24.030
  • ONE WILL SPECIALIZE IN
  • 00:06:24.030 --> 00:06:25.070
  • NEGOTIATIONS,
  • 00:06:25.070 --> 00:06:26.070
  • ONE WILL SPECIALIZE IN TRUST
  • 00:06:26.070 --> 00:06:27.190
  • AND ESTATES.
  • 00:06:27.190 --> 00:06:28.130
  • EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THEM HAVE
  • 00:06:28.130 --> 00:06:29.250
  • THEIR OWN FORM OF SPECIALTY.
  • 00:06:29.250 --> 00:06:31.220
  • AND BECAUSE THEY HAVE

  • A SPECIALTY,
  • 00:06:32.190 --> 00:06:33.260
  • WHENEVER SOMEBODY COMES

  • 00:06:35.000 --> 00:06:36.150
  • THEY DON'T ALL DO
  • 00:06:36.150 --> 00:06:37.190
  • THE SAME THING,
  • 00:06:37.190 --> 00:06:38.180
  • THEY MAKE SURE THAT THEY
  • 00:06:38.180 --> 00:06:39.210
  • UNDERSTAND WHAT THEY'RE GOOD AT
  • 00:06:39.210 --> 00:06:41.150
  • AND THEY DO THAT.
  • 00:06:41.150 --> 00:06:43.170
  • IN MARRIAGE,
  • 00:06:43.170 --> 00:06:44.120
  • IF YOU'RE GOING TO BE
  • 00:06:44.120 --> 00:06:45.050
  • SUCCESSFUL,
  • 00:06:45.050 --> 00:06:45.280
  • YOU NEED TO UNDERSTAND WHAT

  • YOU'RE GOOD AT AND YOU NEED TO
  • 00:06:47.020 --> 00:06:48.200
  • UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU'RE
  • 00:06:48.200 --> 00:06:49.160
  • NOT GOOD AT.
  • 00:06:49.160 --> 00:06:51.090
  • YOU NEED TO UNDERSTAND
  • 00:06:51.090 --> 00:06:52.010
  • WHAT YOUR SPOUSE IS GOOD AT

  • WHAT THEY'RE NOT GOOD AT.
  • 00:06:55.080 --> 00:06:57.170
  • BECAUSE BASED ON THESE THINGS,
  • 00:06:57.170 --> 00:06:59.150
  • YOU DEVELOP KNOWLEDGE.
  • 00:06:59.150 --> 00:07:00.220
  • AND THAT KNOWLEDGE GIVES YOU
  • 00:07:00.220 --> 00:07:01.220
  • UNDERSTANDING.
  • 00:07:01.220 --> 00:07:02.190

  • TO PEACE INSTEAD OF PIECES.
  • 00:07:05.200 --> 00:07:08.200
  • I'LL GIVE YOU A CASE

  • MY WIFE KNOWS THAT IF

  • IN THE HOUSE;
  • 00:07:13.010 --> 00:07:14.070
  • DON'T ASK ME TO FIX IT,
  • 00:07:14.190 --> 00:07:17.190
  • BECAUSE IT WILL ONLY BECOME
  • 00:07:17.190 --> 00:07:18.260
  • MORE BROKEN.
  • 00:07:18.260 --> 00:07:20.110
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:07:20.110 --> 00:07:21.240
  • AFTER 13 YEARS OF MARRIAGE,
  • 00:07:21.240 --> 00:07:24.180
  • WE'VE BEGUN TO DEVELOP
  • 00:07:24.180 --> 00:07:25.190
  • THIS UNDERSTANDING.
  • 00:07:25.230 --> 00:07:28.230
  • BUT IN THIS MARRIAGE
  • 00:07:28.230 --> 00:07:29.230
  • RELATIONSHIP,
  • 00:07:29.230 --> 00:07:30.280

  • TONIGHT WE'RE GOING TO FOCUS
  • 00:07:34.120 --> 00:07:35.110
  • ON THAT PARTNERSHIP.
  • 00:07:35.110 --> 00:07:36.120
  • BUT LET'S STAY WITH THE CHART
  • 00:07:36.120 --> 00:07:37.140
  • FOR JUST A LITTLE BIT.
  • 00:07:37.140 --> 00:07:39.210
  • THIS PARTNERSHIP,
  • 00:07:39.210 --> 00:07:40.270
  • ACCORDING TO THE WORD OF GOD,
  • 00:07:40.270 --> 00:07:42.190

  • -- MULTIPLY.
  • 00:07:49.040 --> 00:07:50.130
  • THAT MEANS PRODUCTION.
  • 00:07:50.130 --> 00:07:53.000
  • GOD DIDN'T WANT YOU
  • 00:07:53.000 --> 00:07:54.080
  • TO RAISE CATS.
  • 00:07:54.080 --> 00:07:55.160
  • HE WANTED YOU TO HAVE KIDS.

  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:07:57.240 --> 00:07:59.030
  • AND WHILE THAT SOUNDS SILLY,
  • 00:08:00.140 --> 00:08:03.140
  • IN OUR SOCIETY,
  • 00:08:03.140 --> 00:08:04.230
  • IT IS FIXING TO BE A TRAGEDY.
  • 00:08:05.190 --> 00:08:08.190
  • AND IT DOESN'T REALLY HAVE
  • 00:08:08.190 --> 00:08:09.180
  • ANYTHING TO DO WITH SCRIPTURE.
  • 00:08:09.180 --> 00:08:12.030
  • IT HAS TO DO STRICTLY
  • 00:08:12.030 --> 00:08:13.000
  • WITH ECONOMICS.
  • 00:08:13.000 --> 00:08:15.060
  • HERE ARE SOME VERY SCARY TRUTHS.
  • 00:08:15.060 --> 00:08:17.240
  • IN ORDER FOR TWO PEOPLE TO BE

  • TAKEN CARE OF,
  • 00:08:19.220 --> 00:08:20.280
  • FOUR PEOPLE MUST BE PRODUCED.
  • 00:08:21.010 --> 00:08:24.010
  • WHY?
  • 00:08:24.010 --> 00:08:25.060
  • BECAUSE IT TAKES TWO
  • 00:08:25.060 --> 00:08:26.110
  • TO TAKE CARE OF ONE.
  • 00:08:26.110 --> 00:08:29.000
  • SO WHENEVER TWO PEOPLE GET
  • 00:08:29.000 --> 00:08:30.120
  • MARRIED AND THEY ONLY HAVE
  • 00:08:30.120 --> 00:08:31.210
  • TWO KIDS,

  • WHO ARE THEY TAKEN CARE OF?
  • 00:08:32.190 --> 00:08:35.100
  • ONE.
  • 00:08:35.100 --> 00:08:38.090
  • WHEN THEY GET TOGETHER
  • 00:08:38.090 --> 00:08:39.020
  • AND THEY ON THE HAVE ONE KID
  • 00:08:39.020 --> 00:08:40.190

  • WHO ARE THEY TAKING CARE OF?
  • 00:08:43.100 --> 00:08:45.020
  • THE DOGS.
  • 00:08:46.070 --> 00:08:49.070
  • RIGHT NOW IN EUROPE,
  • 00:08:49.070 --> 00:08:50.060
  • THE BIRTHRATE IS LESS THAN 1%.
  • 00:08:52.250 --> 00:08:55.250
  • PEOPLE ARE GETTING MARRIED
  • 00:08:55.250 --> 00:08:56.220
  • AND THEY'RE HAVING .9 KIDS.
  • 00:08:58.240 --> 00:09:01.260
  • THAT MEANS THAT MOST COUPLES
  • 00:09:01.260 --> 00:09:03.050
  • AREN'T EVEN HAVING CHILDREN.
  • 00:09:03.170 --> 00:09:06.170
  • AND JUST BY A LACK OF
  • 00:09:06.170 --> 00:09:07.170
  • BIRTHRATES,
  • 00:09:07.170 --> 00:09:08.170
  • SOCIETY IS DWINDLING.

  • WE'RE AT 1.9.
  • 00:09:11.230 --> 00:09:14.180
  • BUT 1.9,

  • OF THIS PRODUCT.

  • IT MOSTLY LIES ON THE FATHER.
  • 00:11:11.190 --> 00:11:14.090

  • COLOSSIANS 3,
  • 00:11:23.290 --> 00:11:25.110

  • DO NOT PROVOKE YOUR CHILDREN,
  • 00:11:26.220 --> 00:11:28.080
  • LEST THEY BECOME DISCOURAGED.
  • 00:11:28.190 --> 00:11:31.190
  • WHENEVER YOU TAKE EPHESIANS

  • WHAT YOU UNDERSTAND IS THAT
  • 00:11:34.270 --> 00:11:36.090
  • PAUL IS SAYING, DAD,
  • 00:11:36.090 --> 00:11:37.280
  • IF YOU DON'T TEACH YOUR SON
  • 00:11:37.280 --> 00:11:39.270
  • HOW TO BECOME A MAN,

  • HE IS GOING TO BE ANGRY WITH

  • TO BE ONE.
  • 00:11:45.270 --> 00:11:48.020
  • AND THEN HE'S GOING
  • 00:11:48.020 --> 00:11:48.220
  • TO BE DISCOURAGED.
  • 00:11:48.220 --> 00:11:50.240
  • HE'S GOING TO BE DISCOURAGED
  • 00:11:50.240 --> 00:11:52.140

  • SUCCESSFUL IN THIS LIFE.
  • 00:12:03.090 --> 00:12:05.230
  • THIS IS ONE OF THE CHALLENGES
  • 00:12:05.230 --> 00:12:07.040
  • WE HAVE WITH HELICOPTER
  • 00:12:07.040 --> 00:12:08.290
  • PARENTING.
  • 00:12:08.290 --> 00:12:11.100
  • THERE IS A POINT WHEN YOU GO
  • 00:12:11.100 --> 00:12:12.250
  • FROM HELPING YOUR KID
  • 00:12:12.250 --> 00:12:14.070
  • TO HURTING THAT KID.
  • 00:12:14.070 --> 00:12:16.210
  • WHY?
  • 00:12:16.210 --> 00:12:17.070
  • BECAUSE THEY DON'T TAKE ANY
  • 00:12:17.070 --> 00:12:18.020
  • RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEMSELVES.
  • 00:12:18.020 --> 00:12:19.080
  • OH, MOM AND DAD WILL TAKE CARE
  • 00:12:19.080 --> 00:12:20.070
  • OF IT.
  • 00:12:20.070 --> 00:12:21.290
  • LEAVE THE CLOTHES ON THE FLOOR.
  • 00:12:21.290 --> 00:12:23.090
  • THEY'LL MAGICALLY FLOAT INTO
  • 00:12:23.090 --> 00:12:24.130
  • THE CLOSET.
  • 00:12:24.130 --> 00:12:25.220
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:12:25.220 --> 00:12:27.030
  • OH, THAT'S OKAY, BABY.
  • 00:12:27.030 --> 00:12:28.030
  • I'M JUST PICK IT UP.
  • 00:12:28.030 --> 00:12:29.220
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:12:29.220 --> 00:12:30.280
  • WE'VE GOT A PROGRAM
  • 00:12:30.280 --> 00:12:32.210
  • AT MY HOUSE.
  • 00:12:32.210 --> 00:12:35.100
  • IT'S CALLED "MINE OR YOURS."
  • 00:12:35.100 --> 00:12:36.280
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:12:36.280 --> 00:12:38.090
  • IF IT'S YOURS, PICK IT UP.
  • 00:12:38.120 --> 00:12:41.120
  • IF IT'S MINE,
  • 00:12:41.120 --> 00:12:42.110
  • AND I PICK IT UP,
  • 00:12:42.110 --> 00:12:43.050
  • YOU BUY IT BACK FROM ME.
  • 00:12:43.060 --> 00:12:46.060
  • OH.
  • 00:12:46.060 --> 00:12:47.140
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:12:47.140 --> 00:12:48.250
  • AND YOU WANT TO SEE MY KIDS
  • 00:12:48.250 --> 00:12:51.080
  • GO AFTER A SOCK?
  • 00:12:51.080 --> 00:12:53.000
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:12:53.000 --> 00:12:54.150
  • I SEE A SOCK.
  • 00:12:54.150 --> 00:12:55.200
  • "NO, IT'S MINE!"
  • 00:12:55.200 --> 00:12:57.240
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:12:57.240 --> 00:12:59.120
  • BECAUSE THEY DON'T WANT TO
  • 00:12:59.120 --> 00:13:01.010
  • HAVE TO BUY THAT SOCK BACK
  • 00:13:01.010 --> 00:13:02.000
  • FROM ME.
  • 00:13:02.000 --> 00:13:04.210
  • THEY DID A CHORE TO EARN
  • 00:13:04.210 --> 00:13:05.180
  • A BUCK.
  • 00:13:05.180 --> 00:13:06.240
  • I'M GOING TO TAKE A BUCK IF
  • 00:13:06.240 --> 00:13:07.230
  • I HAVE TO PICK UP THAT SOCK.
  • 00:13:07.230 --> 00:13:10.220
  • NOW WHAT THEY DON'T UNDERSTAND
  • 00:13:10.220 --> 00:13:11.220
  • IS THAT THIS IS JUST
  • 00:13:11.220 --> 00:13:12.150
  • A RECIRCULATION OF MONEY.
  • 00:13:12.150 --> 00:13:13.210
  • BUT THEY'LL FIGURE THAT OUT
  • 00:13:13.210 --> 00:13:14.150
  • LATER.
  • 00:13:14.150 --> 00:13:15.230
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:13:15.230 --> 00:13:17.030
  • BUT WHAT WE'RE DOING IS WE'RE
  • 00:13:18.200 --> 00:13:21.200
  • TRAINING THEM WITH THE "R"
  • 00:13:21.200 --> 00:13:24.060
  • WORD, "RESPONSIBILITY."
  • 00:13:25.290 --> 00:13:28.290
  • WHY?
  • 00:13:28.290 --> 00:13:29.130
  • BECAUSE RIGHT NOW,
  • 00:13:29.130 --> 00:13:30.050
  • THEY'RE ELEVEN, THEY'RE NINE,
  • 00:13:30.050 --> 00:13:31.070
  • AND THEY'RE SIX, AND THREE.
  • 00:13:31.070 --> 00:13:33.010
  • BUT SOON THEY'RE GOING TO BE
  • 00:13:33.010 --> 00:13:33.260
  • 35 AND 33 AND 30 AND 28.
  • 00:13:34.110 --> 00:13:37.110
  • AND WHEN THEY'RE THAT OLD,
  • 00:13:37.110 --> 00:13:38.230
  • IT'S GOING TO BE TIME FOR OUR
  • 00:13:38.230 --> 00:13:40.130
  • CUSTOMERS TO TELL US HOW GOOD
  • 00:13:40.130 --> 00:13:42.270
  • WE DID IN PRODUCING
  • 00:13:42.270 --> 00:13:44.230
  • OUR PRODUCT.
  • 00:13:44.230 --> 00:13:47.070
  • THAT'S WHEN MY CHILDREN
  • 00:13:47.070 --> 00:13:48.070
  • ARE GOING TO GET OUT HERE
  • 00:13:48.070 --> 00:13:49.080
  • AND IMPACT THE CITY,
  • 00:13:49.080 --> 00:13:50.240
  • AND THE CHURCH,
  • 00:13:50.240 --> 00:13:51.230
  • AND THE SCHOOL.
  • 00:13:51.230 --> 00:13:52.270
  • AND I'M GOING TO FIND OUT
  • 00:13:52.270 --> 00:13:54.040
  • WHETHER OR NOT I'M GETTING A
  • 00:13:54.040 --> 00:13:55.140
  • RETURN ON MY INVESTMENT IN THE
  • 00:13:55.140 --> 00:13:57.220
  • FUTURE BASED ON WHAT I'M DOING
  • 00:13:57.220 --> 00:13:59.220
  • IN MY SMALL BUSINESS TODAY.
  • 00:14:01.290 --> 00:14:04.290
  • WE'RE ALL IN A FAMILY
  • 00:14:04.290 --> 00:14:05.250
  • BUSINESS,
  • 00:14:05.250 --> 00:14:07.040
  • BECAUSE YOUR FAMILY BUSINESS
  • 00:14:07.040 --> 00:14:08.250
  • IS AFFECTING MY FAMILY,
  • 00:14:08.250 --> 00:14:10.100
  • AND MY FAMILY BUSINESS
  • 00:14:10.100 --> 00:14:11.160
  • IS AFFECTING YOUR FAMILY.
  • 00:14:12.010 --> 00:14:15.010
  • AND THE REASON THAT WE'VE GOT
  • 00:14:15.010 --> 00:14:16.000
  • SUCH AN UPSIDE DOWN SOCIETY IS
  • 00:14:17.100 --> 00:14:20.100
  • BECAUSE WE ARE NOT DOING WELL
  • 00:14:20.100 --> 00:14:22.180
  • IN RUNNING THE HOME.
  • 00:14:22.180 --> 00:14:25.080
  • AND THAT'S GOT TO CHANGE.
  • 00:14:25.080 --> 00:14:27.190
  • TONIGHT WE'RE GOING TO DISCUSS
  • 00:14:27.190 --> 00:14:28.170
  • THE PARTNERSHIP,
  • 00:14:28.170 --> 00:14:30.000
  • HOW IT WAS CREATED,
  • 00:14:30.000 --> 00:14:31.000
  • WHAT IT'S INTENDED TO DO,
  • 00:14:31.000 --> 00:14:32.130
  • AND WHAT THE REWARDS ARE
  • 00:14:32.130 --> 00:14:33.280
  • AND WHERE THEY COME FROM.
  • 00:14:33.280 --> 00:14:36.000
  • WE HAVE A SOCIETY THAT IS
  • 00:14:36.000 --> 00:14:37.030
  • UNTRAINED.
  • 00:14:37.030 --> 00:14:39.010
  • AND IT'S UNTRAINED BECAUSE
  • 00:14:39.010 --> 00:14:40.050
  • FATHERS DON'T KNOW HOW TO
  • 00:14:40.050 --> 00:14:41.090
  • BRING THEIR CHILDREN UP
  • 00:14:41.090 --> 00:14:42.110
  • IN THE FEAR AND THE ADMONITION
  • 00:14:42.110 --> 00:14:43.160
  • OF THE LORD.
  • 00:14:43.160 --> 00:14:44.190
  • IT'S UNTRAINED IN VERY
  • 00:14:44.190 --> 00:14:46.000
  • SIMPLE THINGS LIKE "YES, SIR"
  • 00:14:46.000 --> 00:14:48.220
  • AND "YES, MA'AM."
  • 00:14:48.220 --> 00:14:50.270
  • DO YOU KNOW WHY ALL
  • 00:14:50.270 --> 00:14:51.200
  • THE CHAOS IS ERUPTING
  • 00:14:51.200 --> 00:14:52.290
  • IN OUR STREETS?
  • 00:14:52.290 --> 00:14:53.260
  • BECAUSE WE HAVE A GENERATION
  • 00:14:53.260 --> 00:14:55.030
  • THAT DOES NOT RESPECT
  • 00:14:55.030 --> 00:14:56.030
  • AUTHORITY.
  • 00:14:56.030 --> 00:14:56.270
  • AND THE REASON THEY DON'T
  • 00:14:56.270 --> 00:14:57.200
  • RESPECT AUTHORITY IS BECAUSE
  • 00:14:57.200 --> 00:14:58.290
  • WHEN THEY WERE CHILDREN,
  • 00:14:58.290 --> 00:15:00.090
  • THEY WERE NOT REQUIRED TO
  • 00:15:00.090 --> 00:15:01.160
  • RESPECT AUTHORITY.
  • 00:15:02.210 --> 00:15:05.210
  • IT SOUNDS OVER SIMPLIFIED,
  • 00:15:05.210 --> 00:15:07.040
  • BUT IT'S VERY TRUE.
  • 00:15:07.040 --> 00:15:08.050
  • AND WE'RE SEEING
  • 00:15:08.050 --> 00:15:08.180
  • THE CONSEQUENCES EVERYWHERE.
  • 00:15:08.180 --> 00:15:11.100
  • WE'VE GOT A GENERATION THAT'S
  • 00:15:11.100 --> 00:15:12.210
  • UNTRAINED TO WORK.
  • 00:15:13.020 --> 00:15:16.020
  • THEY THINK THAT BECAUSE
  • 00:15:16.020 --> 00:15:17.000
  • THEY'VE GOT FREE WIFI,
  • 00:15:17.000 --> 00:15:18.270
  • THEY SHOULD GET MILLION-DOLLAR
  • 00:15:18.270 --> 00:15:19.270
  • JOBS.
  • 00:15:20.080 --> 00:15:23.080
  • THE BIBLE SAYS: HE WHO DOES
  • 00:15:23.080 --> 00:15:24.150
  • NOT WORK SHOULD NOT EAT.
  • 00:15:24.240 --> 00:15:27.240
  • THERE IS A BALANCE BETWEEN
  • 00:15:27.240 --> 00:15:29.170
  • HELPING AND HINDERING.
  • 00:15:29.170 --> 00:15:31.170
  • AND AT SOME POINT,
  • 00:15:31.170 --> 00:15:32.250
  • YOU'VE GOT TO TEACH
  • 00:15:32.250 --> 00:15:33.230
  • YOUR CHILDREN THE BENEFIT
  • 00:15:33.230 --> 00:15:35.230
  • OF A HARD DAY'S WORK.
  • 00:15:35.230 --> 00:15:38.230
  • IT WILL NOT KILL THEM.
  • 00:15:39.130 --> 00:15:42.130
  • BUT IT WILL EQUIP THEM.
  • 00:15:42.250 --> 00:15:45.250
  • IF THEY DON'T WORK,
  • 00:15:45.250 --> 00:15:46.260
  • THEY DON'T EARN.
  • 00:15:46.260 --> 00:15:47.200
  • IF THEY DON'T EARN,
  • 00:15:47.200 --> 00:15:48.190
  • THEY DON'T KNOW HOW TO BE
  • 00:15:48.190 --> 00:15:49.130
  • STEWARDS.
  • 00:15:49.130 --> 00:15:51.210
  • IF THEY DON'T KNOW HOW TO BE
  • 00:15:51.210 --> 00:15:52.150
  • STEWARDS,
  • 00:15:52.150 --> 00:15:53.040
  • THEN THEY WON'T KNOW HOW TO
  • 00:15:53.040 --> 00:15:53.270
  • MANAGE.
  • 00:15:54.070 --> 00:15:57.070
  • HERE'S THE QUESTIONS THAT YOU
  • 00:15:57.070 --> 00:15:58.110
  • NEED TO ASK ABOUT THE
  • 00:15:58.110 --> 00:15:59.120
  • PARTNERSHIP THAT YOU'RE IN
  • 00:15:59.120 --> 00:16:00.210
  • OR THE PARTNERSHIP THAT YOU WANT
  • 00:16:00.210 --> 00:16:01.240
  • TO BE IN.
  • 00:16:01.240 --> 00:16:02.180
  • IF YOU WERE GOING TO GO INTO
  • 00:16:02.180 --> 00:16:03.140
  • A BUSINESS PARTNERSHIP,
  • 00:16:03.140 --> 00:16:04.190
  • THESE WOULD BE THE QUESTIONS
  • 00:16:04.190 --> 00:16:05.120
  • YOU WOULD ASK.
  • 00:16:05.120 --> 00:16:06.040
  • IF YOU'RE GOING
  • 00:16:06.040 --> 00:16:06.240
  • IN A MARRIAGE PARTNERSHIP,
  • 00:16:06.240 --> 00:16:07.260
  • THESE SHOULD BE THE QUESTIONS
  • 00:16:07.260 --> 00:16:08.210
  • THAT YOU SHOULD ASK.
  • 00:16:08.210 --> 00:16:10.160
  • THE FIRST QUESTION IS:
  • 00:16:10.160 --> 00:16:11.230
  • WHAT AM I EXPECTED TO INVEST?
  • 00:16:11.230 --> 00:16:14.120
  • WHAT'S IT GOING TO COST ME
  • 00:16:14.120 --> 00:16:15.170
  • TO GET INTO THIS DEAL?
  • 00:16:15.170 --> 00:16:17.130
  • THE NEXT QUESTION IS:
  • 00:16:17.130 --> 00:16:18.090
  • WHAT'S IT GOING TO COST ME
  • 00:16:18.090 --> 00:16:19.080
  • TO GET OUT OF THE DEAL?
  • 00:16:19.080 --> 00:16:22.000
  • WHAT'S IT'S GOING TO COST ME
  • 00:16:22.000 --> 00:16:23.260
  • IN TERMS OF EXPECTATIONS OF MY
  • 00:16:23.260 --> 00:16:26.000
  • ABILITY WHILE I'M IN THE DEAL?
  • 00:16:26.000 --> 00:16:28.220
  • WHAT CAN I EXPECT OF OTHERS?
  • 00:16:28.220 --> 00:16:31.190
  • AND WHAT CAN I GET AS A RETURN
  • 00:16:31.250 --> 00:16:34.250
  • ON INVESTMENT?
  • 00:16:34.250 --> 00:16:36.190
  • THESE ARE GOING TO BE
  • 00:16:36.190 --> 00:16:37.040
  • THE THINGS THAT WE TALK ABOUT
  • 00:16:37.040 --> 00:16:38.070
  • TONIGHT, AS WE DISCUSS
  • 00:16:38.070 --> 00:16:39.260
  • "A MATCH MADE IN HEAVEN
  • 00:16:39.260 --> 00:16:42.070
  • WORKED OUT ON EARTH."
  • 00:16:42.070 --> 00:16:45.000
  • WHETHER YOU KNOW IT OR NOT,
  • 00:16:45.000 --> 00:16:46.090
  • THE PERSON THAT YOU'RE MARRIED
  • 00:16:46.090 --> 00:16:47.050
  • TO WAS A MATCH MADE IN HEAVEN.
  • 00:16:49.190 --> 00:16:52.190
  • I PROMISE.
  • 00:16:52.190 --> 00:16:53.260
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:16:53.260 --> 00:16:55.200
  • I CAN TELL RIGHT NOW
  • 00:16:55.200 --> 00:16:57.070
  • I BELIEVE IT MORE THAN YOU DO.
  • 00:16:57.070 --> 00:16:59.170
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:16:59.170 --> 00:17:00.200
  • BUT IF YOU WANT TO SCORE
  • 00:17:00.200 --> 00:17:01.190
  • A POINT,
  • 00:17:01.190 --> 00:17:02.050
  • GO AHEAD AND LOOK AT
  • 00:17:02.050 --> 00:17:02.290
  • YOUR WIFE, AND SAY, BABE,
  • 00:17:02.290 --> 00:17:03.250
  • WE ARE A MATCH MADE IN HEAVEN,
  • 00:17:03.250 --> 00:17:06.230
  • BUT WE'RE WORKING IT OUT
  • 00:17:06.230 --> 00:17:08.060
  • ON EARTH.
  • 00:17:08.060 --> 00:17:09.160
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:17:09.160 --> 00:17:10.270
  • HERE'S HOW IT WORKS.
  • 00:17:11.120 --> 00:17:14.120
  • IN ANY PARTNERSHIP,
  • 00:17:14.120 --> 00:17:17.080
  • YOU SIT DOWN AND YOU DISCUSS
  • 00:17:17.080 --> 00:17:18.120
  • THE TERMS OF THE DEAL.
  • 00:17:18.120 --> 00:17:20.120
  • WHAT AM I EXPECTED TO INVEST?
  • 00:17:20.120 --> 00:17:23.070
  • WELL, IN MARRIAGE,
  • 00:17:23.070 --> 00:17:24.160
  • YOU ARE EXPECTED TO INVEST
  • 00:17:24.160 --> 00:17:26.280
  • EVERYTHING,
  • 00:17:27.000 --> 00:17:30.000
  • EVERYTHING.
  • 00:17:30.000 --> 00:17:31.210
  • JUST TO MAKE SURE YOU
  • 00:17:31.210 --> 00:17:32.120
  • UNDERSTOOD WHAT I SAID,
  • 00:17:32.120 --> 00:17:33.090
  • BECAUSE YOU'RE SITTING KIND
  • 00:17:33.090 --> 00:17:34.010
  • OF QUIET AND UNCOMFORTABLE
  • 00:17:34.010 --> 00:17:35.020
  • RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:17:35.020 --> 00:17:36.160
  • WHAT ARE YOU EXPECTED TO
  • 00:17:36.160 --> 00:17:37.180
  • INVEST IN YOUR MARRIAGE?
  • 00:17:37.180 --> 00:17:39.100
  • (EVERYTHING!)
  • 00:17:39.100 --> 00:17:41.160
  • THERE'S ONE BELIEVER RIGHT
  • 00:17:41.160 --> 00:17:42.070
  • THERE.
  • 00:17:42.070 --> 00:17:43.110
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:17:43.110 --> 00:17:44.180
  • HE'S EITHER INVESTED
  • 00:17:44.180 --> 00:17:45.260
  • OR HE'S LOOKING FOR INVESTMENT.
  • 00:17:45.260 --> 00:17:47.070
  • I DON'T KNOW.
  • 00:17:47.070 --> 00:17:48.090
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:17:48.090 --> 00:17:49.160
  • THIS IS WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:17:51.040 --> 00:17:54.040
  • JESUS CHRIST SPEAKING: FOR
  • 00:17:54.040 --> 00:17:55.190
  • THIS REASON,
  • 00:17:55.190 --> 00:17:57.170
  • A MAN SHALL LEAVE HIS FATHER
  • 00:17:57.170 --> 00:17:59.240
  • AND HIS MOTHER,
  • 00:17:59.240 --> 00:18:01.010
  • AND BE JOINED TO HIS WIFE.
  • 00:18:01.010 --> 00:18:03.280
  • FOR WHAT REASON?
  • 00:18:03.280 --> 00:18:05.140
  • READ THE PREVIOUS VERSE.
  • 00:18:05.140 --> 00:18:07.060
  • VERSE 4,
  • 00:18:07.060 --> 00:18:07.270
  • IT SAYS: DON'T YOU KNOW THAT
  • 00:18:07.270 --> 00:18:09.240
  • GOD CREATED THEM MALE
  • 00:18:09.240 --> 00:18:11.250
  • AND GOD CREATED THEM FEMALE?
  • 00:18:11.250 --> 00:18:13.290
  • GOD CREATED TWO VERY DISTINCT
  • 00:18:13.290 --> 00:18:16.130
  • INDIVIDUALS THAT WERE VERY
  • 00:18:16.130 --> 00:18:18.030
  • COMPATIBLE WITH EACH OTHER,
  • 00:18:18.030 --> 00:18:19.230
  • BOTH EMOTIONALLY
  • 00:18:19.230 --> 00:18:21.000
  • AND PHYSICALLY.
  • 00:18:21.000 --> 00:18:22.040
  • AND BECAUSE GOD CREATED
  • 00:18:22.040 --> 00:18:23.180
  • SOMEONE WHO IS COMPATIBLE
  • 00:18:23.180 --> 00:18:25.000
  • TO YOU,
  • 00:18:25.000 --> 00:18:25.230
  • HE GAVE YOU A REASON TO BE
  • 00:18:25.230 --> 00:18:27.130
  • JOINED TOGETHER.
  • 00:18:27.130 --> 00:18:30.060
  • NOW IN THIS UNION,
  • 00:18:30.060 --> 00:18:31.150
  • HE EXPECTS YOU, AS A PARTNER,
  • 00:18:31.150 --> 00:18:33.080
  • TO INVEST EVERYTHING.
  • 00:18:33.230 --> 00:18:36.230
  • AND HERE'S WHAT JESUS GOES ON
  • 00:18:36.230 --> 00:18:38.030
  • TO SAY: WHAT GOD HAS BROUGHT
  • 00:18:38.030 --> 00:18:40.160
  • TOGETHER,
  • 00:18:40.160 --> 00:18:41.260
  • LET NO MAN PUT ASUNDER.
  • 00:18:41.260 --> 00:18:43.130
  • SAY THAT WITH ME,
  • 00:18:43.130 --> 00:18:44.210
  • WHAT GOD HAS BROUGHT TOGETHER,
  • 00:18:44.210 --> 00:18:46.290
  • LET NO MAN PUT ASUNDER.
  • 00:18:46.290 --> 00:18:49.020
  • LET NO MAN SEPARATE.
  • 00:18:49.020 --> 00:18:51.130
  • REMEMBER THAT.
  • 00:18:51.130 --> 00:18:52.020
  • "WHAT GOD HAS BROUGHT
  • 00:18:52.020 --> 00:18:53.020
  • TOGETHER,"
  • 00:18:53.020 --> 00:18:53.170
  • THAT'S GOING TO BE SOMETHING
  • 00:18:53.170 --> 00:18:54.120
  • WE REVISIT IN A FEW MOMENTS.
  • 00:18:54.120 --> 00:18:56.100
  • BUT THIS PARTNERSHIP
  • 00:18:56.100 --> 00:18:57.230
  • IS NOT ONLY AN INVESTMENT
  • 00:18:57.230 --> 00:18:59.000
  • THAT REQUIRES EVERYTHING;
  • 00:18:59.000 --> 00:19:00.150
  • IT IS A LONG-TERM INVESTMENT.
  • 00:19:01.240 --> 00:19:04.240
  • IN THE MARRIAGE VOWS,
  • 00:19:04.240 --> 00:19:05.240
  • WE SAY THESE WORDS,
  • 00:19:05.240 --> 00:19:06.280
  • "TILL DEATH DO WE PART."
  • 00:19:07.160 --> 00:19:10.160
  • LAST NIGHT IN BATAVIA, OHIO,
  • 00:19:10.160 --> 00:19:12.190
  • THERE WAS A COUPLE THERE
  • 00:19:12.190 --> 00:19:13.200
  • WHO WAS CELEBRATING THEIR
  • 00:19:13.200 --> 00:19:14.140
  • 64TH WEDDING ANNIVERSARY.
  • 00:19:15.000 --> 00:19:18.000
  • AND THEY WERE BOTH IN GOOD
  • 00:19:18.000 --> 00:19:18.270
  • SHAPE AND THEY WERE HAVING
  • 00:19:18.270 --> 00:19:19.260
  • A GOOD TIME,
  • 00:19:19.260 --> 00:19:20.180
  • AS WE WERE HAVING OUR CONCERT.
  • 00:19:20.180 --> 00:19:21.280
  • AND I GREETED THESE INDIVIDUALS.
  • 00:19:21.280 --> 00:19:23.080
  • AND THE LITTLE WIFE CAME UP,
  • 00:19:23.080 --> 00:19:25.220
  • AND SHE GOES,
  • 00:19:25.220 --> 00:19:26.080
  • "WE'RE CELEBRATING 64 YEARS
  • 00:19:26.080 --> 00:19:28.080
  • OF MARRIAGE."
  • 00:19:28.080 --> 00:19:30.130
  • AND THE OLDER GENTLEMAN
  • 00:19:30.130 --> 00:19:31.000
  • SITTING BEHIND HER SAID,
  • 00:19:31.000 --> 00:19:31.240
  • "IT'S JUST TOO LONG.
  • 00:19:31.240 --> 00:19:33.060
  • IT'S TOO LONG."
  • 00:19:33.060 --> 00:19:34.110
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:19:34.110 --> 00:19:35.180
  • I ACTED LIKE I DIDN'T HEAR HIM.
  • 00:19:41.000 --> 00:19:44.000
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:19:44.000 --> 00:19:45.140
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:19:46.190 --> 00:19:49.190
  • "DO YOU KNOW WHY MEN DIE
  • 00:19:49.190 --> 00:19:50.230
  • BEFORE THEIR WIVES?"
  • 00:19:50.230 --> 00:19:53.210
  • I SAID, "NO."
  • 00:19:53.210 --> 00:19:56.080
  • HE SAID, "WE WANT TO."
  • 00:19:56.080 --> 00:19:58.080
  • (LAUGHTER & APPLAUSE)
  • 00:19:58.080 --> 00:20:00.240
  • I SAID,
  • 00:20:05.050 --> 00:20:08.050
  • "I'LL TAKE YOUR WORD FOR IT."
  • 00:20:08.050 --> 00:20:09.230
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:20:09.230 --> 00:20:10.240
  • "HAVE A NICE NIGHT."
  • 00:20:10.240 --> 00:20:12.050
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:20:12.050 --> 00:20:13.130
  • BUT WHEN I'M TELLING YOU THAT
  • 00:20:14.230 --> 00:20:17.230
  • YOU ARE EXPECTED TO INVEST
  • 00:20:17.230 --> 00:20:19.100
  • EVERYTHING,
  • 00:20:19.100 --> 00:20:19.290
  • HERE'S BIBLICAL EVIDENCE OF
  • 00:20:19.290 --> 00:20:20.250
  • THE SAME,
  • 00:20:20.250 --> 00:20:21.130
  • EPHESIANS 5:25: HUSBANDS,
  • 00:20:21.130 --> 00:20:23.230
  • LOVE YOUR WIFE AS CHRIST LOVED
  • 00:20:23.230 --> 00:20:25.150
  • THE CHURCH AND GAVE HIMSELF --
  • 00:20:25.150 --> 00:20:28.120
  • SAY THAT WITH ME.
  • 00:20:28.120 --> 00:20:29.070
  • AND GAVE HIMSELF FOR HER.
  • 00:20:30.020 --> 00:20:33.020
  • NOW THE REASON THAT I THINK
  • 00:20:33.020 --> 00:20:33.260
  • THAT WORD "GAVE" IS IMPORTANT
  • 00:20:33.260 --> 00:20:35.240
  • IS BECAUSE IT DOESN'T SAY THAT
  • 00:20:35.240 --> 00:20:36.290
  • THE CHURCH TOOK CHRIST' LIFE.
  • 00:20:36.290 --> 00:20:39.170
  • IT SAYS: HE WILLINGLY GAVE
  • 00:20:39.170 --> 00:20:41.280
  • HIS LIFE.
  • 00:20:41.280 --> 00:20:42.160
  • I CAN ASSURE YOU;
  • 00:20:42.160 --> 00:20:43.140
  • IN THIS PARTNERSHIP, HUSBANDS,
  • 00:20:43.140 --> 00:20:45.100
  • YOUR PARTNER WILL BE MUCH MORE
  • 00:20:45.100 --> 00:20:46.270
  • SATISFIED WITH THE PARTNERSHIP
  • 00:20:46.270 --> 00:20:49.030
  • IF SHE KNOWS THAT YOU ARE
  • 00:20:49.030 --> 00:20:50.120
  • WILLINGLY GIVING YOURSELF;
  • 00:20:50.120 --> 00:20:52.120
  • SHE DOESN'T HAVE TO CONSTANTLY
  • 00:20:52.120 --> 00:20:53.280
  • TAKE IT FROM YOU.
  • 00:20:55.020 --> 00:20:58.020
  • HE EXPECTS --
  • 00:20:58.020 --> 00:20:58.150
  • SHE EXPECTS EVERYTHING.
  • 00:20:58.230 --> 00:21:01.250
  • PROVERBS 31:12 IS WHERE WE
  • 00:21:01.250 --> 00:21:04.000
  • FIND OUT WHAT'S EXPECTED OF
  • 00:21:04.000 --> 00:21:05.260
  • THE WIFE IN THIS PARTNERSHIP.
  • 00:21:05.260 --> 00:21:07.180
  • PROVERBS 31:12 SAYS: SHE DOES
  • 00:21:07.180 --> 00:21:09.280
  • HIM GOOD AND NOT EVIL
  • 00:21:10.130 --> 00:21:13.130
  • ALL THE DAYS OF HER LIFE.
  • 00:21:14.150 --> 00:21:17.150
  • WHEN YOU READ PROVERBS 31,
  • 00:21:17.150 --> 00:21:19.040
  • YOU FIND A WOMAN,
  • 00:21:19.040 --> 00:21:19.270
  • WHO IS CAPABLE OF DOING
  • 00:21:19.270 --> 00:21:21.010
  • ALL KINDS OF THINGS.
  • 00:21:21.010 --> 00:21:22.130
  • SHE'S BRIGHT.
  • 00:21:22.130 --> 00:21:23.060
  • SHE'S INGENUITIVE.
  • 00:21:23.060 --> 00:21:24.160
  • SHE WORKS IN BUSINESS.
  • 00:21:24.160 --> 00:21:25.200
  • SHE WORKS IN THE COMMUNITY.
  • 00:21:25.200 --> 00:21:26.250
  • SHE WORKS IN THE HOME.
  • 00:21:26.250 --> 00:21:28.020
  • SHE'S RESPECTED IN SOCIETY.
  • 00:21:28.020 --> 00:21:30.000
  • AND WE READ ALL OF THESE
  • 00:21:30.000 --> 00:21:31.020
  • INDIVIDUAL VIRTUES,
  • 00:21:31.020 --> 00:21:32.120
  • AND WE THINK, WOW,
  • 00:21:32.120 --> 00:21:33.150
  • WHAT A WOMAN.
  • 00:21:33.150 --> 00:21:34.100
  • BUT WHEN YOU BREAK IT DOWN,
  • 00:21:34.100 --> 00:21:35.130
  • IT BOILS DOWN TO THAT VERSE.
  • 00:21:35.130 --> 00:21:36.290
  • IT SAYS NO MATTER WHAT A WOMAN
  • 00:21:36.290 --> 00:21:38.060
  • DOES,
  • 00:21:38.060 --> 00:21:38.290
  • AS LONG AS SHE'S DOING IT FOR
  • 00:21:38.290 --> 00:21:40.100
  • THE BETTERMENT OF HER FAMILY,
  • 00:21:40.100 --> 00:21:41.290
  • FOR HER HUSBAND,
  • 00:21:41.290 --> 00:21:42.260
  • FOR HER CHILDREN,
  • 00:21:42.260 --> 00:21:43.270
  • SHE'S DOING IT FOR THE RIGHT
