When I was 17, I did what people told me…
Did what my father said, and let my mother mold me…
- Janet Jackson, “Control” (1986)
There’s a difference between being in control, having self-control, and HAVING to be in control. This post contains just a portion of my notes from Pastor Creflo A. Dollar’s sermon at the Radical Redefined women’s conference on March 25, 2011 at World Changers Church International.
We ALL Need Relationships
These days the enemy is attacking women like never before. We all need relationships in order to grow, but Satan uses all kinds of factions to destroy the family and each other.
“[Severely] independent women say, ‘I don’t need no man.’ And not a lot of men will admit this, but we need women–maybe some of just haven’t found the right one yet. But I [Creflo] will tell you, I need a woman. I need THAT woman [pointing at his wife Taffi]! I wouldn’t be where I am today without my woman. God gave me that woman because I needed her. I was selfish and had all kinds of issues, but God gave me my wife to help deliver me from that.”
Remaining single is OK, but you cannot grow and develop without having relationships with people. You can’t just cut everybody off. Respect relationships and bring something to them; i.e., GIVE advantage, don’t take advantage. You cannot grow and develop without having a relationship (courtship or friendship) with another human being.
One of my co-workers told me that her son’s girlfriend writes emails to her (the mother) exactly like she speaks, excepts she uses abbreviations as if she’s texting. In the time it took her to create all those abbreviations, she could have written grammatically correct sentences, since emails have no character limit.
A teacher I met last year has teenagers, and they asked her to add a texting package to her cell phone so they could communicate “easier.” The teacher said, “Why do I need to text you when I can just call you?”
Them: “We don’t want you to call.”
Her: “But I want to talk to you. I want to hear your voice.”
Them: (Matter of factly, without an attitude) “But we don’t wanna talk to you, Mom.”
With all of our high-tech devices, we’re more accessible, but we’re also more disconnected And kids’ social skills are getting worse as a result.
What are we going to do about it?
