  • - I WANT TO PREACH TODAY
  • 00:00:16.220 --> 00:00:17.230
  • ON GOD'S PERSPECTIVE
  • 00:00:17.230 --> 00:00:19.270
  • OF PARENTING.
  • 00:00:19.270 --> 00:00:21.080
  • DID YOU KNOW THAT
  • 00:00:21.080 --> 00:00:21.280
  • INSANITY IS HEREDITARY?
  • 00:00:21.280 --> 00:00:24.090
  • YOU CAN ACTUALLY CATCH IT
  • 00:00:24.090 --> 00:00:25.190
  • FROM YOUR CHILDREN.
  • 00:00:25.190 --> 00:00:28.070
  • A SCIENCE TEACHER
  • 00:00:28.070 --> 00:00:29.010
  • WAS INTRODUCING HER CLASS
  • 00:00:29.010 --> 00:00:30.160
  • TO THE SUBJECT OF MAGNET
  • 00:00:30.160 --> 00:00:32.050
  • AND MAGNETIC POWER,
  • 00:00:32.050 --> 00:00:33.200
  • AND SHE SAID,
  • 00:00:33.200 --> 00:00:34.150
  • "I WANT YOU TO GUESS
  • 00:00:34.150 --> 00:00:36.020
  • WHAT WE'RE GOING TO STUDY NEXT."
  • 00:00:36.020 --> 00:00:37.210
  • SHE SAID, "THE SUBJECT
  • 00:00:37.210 --> 00:00:38.280
  • STARTS WITH A "M,"
  • 00:00:39.120 --> 00:00:42.120
  • AND IT PICKS UP THINGS.
  • 00:00:42.120 --> 00:00:43.220
  • WHAT AM I?"
  • 00:00:43.220 --> 00:00:44.230
  • AND A TEENAGER SPOKE UP
  • 00:00:44.230 --> 00:00:45.260
  • AND SAID, "A MOTHER."
  • 00:00:45.260 --> 00:00:48.030
  • THE DEFINITION OF A FATHER
  • 00:00:48.030 --> 00:00:49.200
  • IS A MAN WHO CARRIES PHOTOGRAPHS
  • 00:00:49.200 --> 00:00:52.080
  • WHERE HIS MONEY USED TO BE.
  • 00:00:52.080 --> 00:00:54.200
  • YOU KNOW YOUR CHILDREN
  • 00:00:54.200 --> 00:00:55.110
  • ARE GROWING UP
  • 00:00:55.110 --> 00:00:56.130
  • WHEN THEY STOP ASKING
  • 00:00:56.130 --> 00:00:58.010
  • WHERE THEY CAME FROM,
  • 00:00:58.010 --> 00:00:59.010
  • AND THEY REFUSE TO TELL YOU
  • 00:00:59.010 --> 00:01:00.180
  • WHERE THEY'RE GOING.
  • 00:01:00.180 --> 00:01:02.250
  • I LOVE THIS,
  • 00:01:02.250 --> 00:01:03.190
  • THIS IS A GREAT QUOTE:
  • 00:01:03.190 --> 00:01:05.010
  • "THE ADVICE WE REJECTED
  • 00:01:05.010 --> 00:01:06.240
  • FROM OUR PARENTS, WE'RE NOW
  • 00:01:06.240 --> 00:01:08.150
  • GIVING TO OUR CHILDREN."
  • 00:01:08.190 --> 00:01:11.190
  • AND THE FIFTH COMMANDMENT IS:
  • 00:01:12.100 --> 00:01:15.100
  • "HONOR THY FATHER
  • 00:01:15.100 --> 00:01:17.110
  • AND THY MOTHER."
  • 00:01:17.260 --> 00:01:20.260
  • WE MUST REMEMBER THAT
  • 00:01:20.260 --> 00:01:23.070
  • THIS IS ONE OF GOD'S TOP TEN.
  • 00:01:23.080 --> 00:01:26.080
  • WHEN PARENTS BEGIN
  • 00:01:26.080 --> 00:01:27.080
  • TO DECLINE IN HEALTH
  • 00:01:27.080 --> 00:01:28.170
  • AND REQUIRE MORE HELP FROM US,
  • 00:01:28.170 --> 00:01:30.210
  • WE ARE TO HONOR THEM.
  • 00:01:30.210 --> 00:01:32.180
  • IT IS A COMMANDMENT
  • 00:01:32.180 --> 00:01:33.250
  • AND A BIG DEAL TO GOD.
  • 00:01:33.250 --> 00:01:36.170
  • HOW DO YOU HONOR YOUR PARENTS?
  • 00:01:36.170 --> 00:01:39.010
  • NUMBER ONE, YOU HONOR
  • 00:01:39.010 --> 00:01:40.050
  • YOUR PARENTS BY ACCEPTING THEM.
  • 00:01:40.050 --> 00:01:42.280
  • PROVERBS SAID:
  • 00:01:42.280 --> 00:01:43.200
  • "LISTEN TO YOUR FATHER,
  • 00:01:43.200 --> 00:01:45.120
  • WHO GAVE YOU YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:01:45.120 --> 00:01:47.000
  • AND DON'T DESPISE YOUR MOTHER
  • 00:01:47.000 --> 00:01:48.220
  • AND HER EXPERIENCE
  • 00:01:48.220 --> 00:01:50.060
  • WHEN SHE'S OLD."
  • 00:01:50.060 --> 00:01:51.190
  • ONE TRANSLATION SAID:
  • 00:01:51.190 --> 00:01:52.150
  • "DON'T TUNE THEM OUT."
  • 00:01:52.230 --> 00:01:55.230
  • THEY'RE NOT PERFECT,
  • 00:01:55.230 --> 00:01:57.080
  • BUT YOU ARE TO HONOR THEM
  • 00:01:57.080 --> 00:01:58.260
  • BY ACCEPTING THEM.
  • 00:01:58.260 --> 00:02:01.250
  • IN COURT, WHEN YOU ADDRESS
  • 00:02:01.250 --> 00:02:03.140
  • THE JUDGE, YOU ADDRESS HIM
  • 00:02:03.140 --> 00:02:05.020
  • AS YOUR HONOR.
  • 00:02:05.020 --> 00:02:06.290
  • IT HAS NOTHING TO DO
  • 00:02:06.290 --> 00:02:07.290
  • WITH HIS PERSONALITY,
  • 00:02:07.290 --> 00:02:09.100
  • YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW HIM,
  • 00:02:09.100 --> 00:02:10.180
  • BUT YOU'RE RESPECTING
  • 00:02:10.180 --> 00:02:11.180
  • THE POSITION,
  • 00:02:11.180 --> 00:02:13.050
  • AND THAT'S THE THEME,
  • 00:02:13.050 --> 00:02:14.160
  • AND THAT'S THE POINT,
  • 00:02:14.160 --> 00:02:15.230
  • IS WE ARE TO ACCEPT THEM
  • 00:02:15.230 --> 00:02:18.080
  • AND HONOR THEM,
  • 00:02:18.080 --> 00:02:20.010
  • BECAUSE OF THE POSITION
  • 00:02:20.010 --> 00:02:21.190
  • THAT THEY HOLD.
  • 00:02:21.190 --> 00:02:22.280
  • I ACCEPT YOU IN SPITE
  • 00:02:22.280 --> 00:02:24.170
  • OF YOUR NEGATIVES,
  • 00:02:24.170 --> 00:02:25.220
  • AND I HONOR YOU.
  • 00:02:25.220 --> 00:02:27.170
  • THE SECOND WAY THAT
  • 00:02:27.170 --> 00:02:28.130
  • WE HONOR OUR PARENTS
  • 00:02:28.130 --> 00:02:29.200
  • IS BY APPRECIATING THEM.
  • 00:02:30.040 --> 00:02:33.040
  • I APPRECIATE THE POSITIVES.
  • 00:02:33.040 --> 00:02:35.160
  • I LOOK AND REALIZE THAT
  • 00:02:35.160 --> 00:02:37.250
  • IT'S COSTLY TO RAISE CHILDREN.
  • 00:02:37.250 --> 00:02:40.110
  • IT'S EXPENSIVE.
  • 00:02:40.110 --> 00:02:41.270
  • IT'S A GRUELING,
  • 00:02:42.050 --> 00:02:45.050
  • ENERGY-TAKING EXPERIENCE
  • 00:02:45.050 --> 00:02:48.020
  • TO BE A PARENT,
  • 00:02:48.020 --> 00:02:49.010
  • AND RAISE YOUR CHILDREN.
  • 00:02:49.010 --> 00:02:51.070
  • A LITTLE BOY PRESENTED
  • 00:02:51.070 --> 00:02:52.040
  • HIS MOTHER WITH A BILL.
  • 00:02:52.040 --> 00:02:54.040
  • HE WROTE THE BILL UP,
  • 00:02:54.040 --> 00:02:56.070
  • HAND-WRITTEN,
  • 00:02:56.070 --> 00:02:57.010
  • WITH A CRAYON.
  • 00:02:57.010 --> 00:02:58.120
  • "I TOOK OUT THE GARBAGE,
  • 00:02:58.120 --> 00:02:59.190
  • YOU OWE ME $1.
  • 00:02:59.190 --> 00:03:01.040
  • I CLEANED UP MY ROOM,
  • 00:03:01.040 --> 00:03:02.050
  • YOU OWE ME $2.
  • 00:03:02.050 --> 00:03:03.140
  • I FEED THE DOG EVERYDAY,
  • 00:03:03.140 --> 00:03:05.020
  • THAT'LL BE $2 A DAY."
  • 00:03:05.020 --> 00:03:07.040
  • AND THEN HE PUT THE FINAL BILL,
  • 00:03:07.040 --> 00:03:09.210
  • "$10 YOU OWE ME."
  • 00:03:09.210 --> 00:03:12.000
  • SO THEN, THE MOM DECIDED
  • 00:03:12.000 --> 00:03:14.120
  • SHE WOULD WRITE THE SON A BILL.
  • 00:03:14.120 --> 00:03:16.180
  • "I'VE WASHED AND IRONED
  • 00:03:16.180 --> 00:03:17.220
  • YOUR DIRTY CLOTHES
  • 00:03:17.220 --> 00:03:18.200
  • FOR TEN YEARS,
  • 00:03:18.200 --> 00:03:20.010
  • YOU OWE ME $10.000.
  • 00:03:20.010 --> 00:03:21.280
  • I'VE BEEN BUYING
  • 00:03:21.280 --> 00:03:23.040
  • AND PREPARING YOUR MEALS
  • 00:03:23.040 --> 00:03:24.080
  • FOR TEN YEARS,
  • 00:03:24.080 --> 00:03:25.100
  • YOU OWE ME $20.000.
  • 00:03:25.100 --> 00:03:27.060
  • I HAVE BEEN YOUR NURSE
  • 00:03:27.060 --> 00:03:30.050
  • AND YOUR DOCTOR,
  • 00:03:30.050 --> 00:03:31.150
  • NOURISHING YOU BACK TO HEALTH
  • 00:03:31.150 --> 00:03:32.230
  • FOR OVER TEN YEARS
  • 00:03:32.230 --> 00:03:33.160
  • EVERY TIME YOU GOT SICK,
  • 00:03:33.160 --> 00:03:34.280
  • ANOTHER $10.000.
  • 00:03:34.280 --> 00:03:36.190
  • TOTAL BILL, I LOVE YOU."
  • 00:03:38.150 --> 00:03:41.150
  • ANY MOTHER IN THIS ROOM
  • 00:03:41.150 --> 00:03:44.080
  • COULD PERFORM THE JOB
  • 00:03:44.080 --> 00:03:45.130
  • OF AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLLER
  • 00:03:45.130 --> 00:03:47.160
  • WITH EASE.
  • 00:03:47.160 --> 00:03:49.110
  • LET'S APPRECIATE OUR PARENTS,
  • 00:03:49.110 --> 00:03:51.050
  • LET'S APPRECIATE THEIR EFFORT.
  • 00:03:51.050 --> 00:03:52.250
  • LET'S APPRECIATE
  • 00:03:52.250 --> 00:03:53.170
  • THEIR SACRIFICE,
  • 00:03:53.170 --> 00:03:54.240
  • HONOR YOUR FATHER
  • 00:03:54.240 --> 00:03:56.180
  • AND YOUR MOTHER,
  • 00:03:56.180 --> 00:03:58.000
  • AND YOU ARE TO DO IT
  • 00:03:58.000 --> 00:03:59.170
  • BECAUSE THE BIBLE SAYS TO DO IT.
  • 00:03:59.170 --> 00:04:02.010
  • TWO FATHERS WERE
  • 00:04:02.010 --> 00:04:02.250
  • DISCUSSING THE COST
  • 00:04:02.250 --> 00:04:04.020
  • OF RAISING CHILDREN.
  • 00:04:04.020 --> 00:04:05.120
  • ONE OF THE DADS SAID,
  • 00:04:05.120 --> 00:04:06.090
  • "I KNOW THE COST IS GREAT,
  • 00:04:06.090 --> 00:04:07.210
  • BUT IT'S WORTH IT TO ME,
  • 00:04:07.210 --> 00:04:08.270
  • JUST TO HAVE SOMEONE
  • 00:04:08.270 --> 00:04:09.230
  • AT THE HOUSE
  • 00:04:09.230 --> 00:04:10.140
  • WHO KNOWS HOW TO WORK A COMPUTER
  • 00:04:10.140 --> 00:04:11.240
  • AND WORK THE DVD PLAYER."
  • 00:04:11.240 --> 00:04:14.020
  • SO THERE ARE BENEFITS.
  • 00:04:14.020 --> 00:04:15.280
  • ACCEPT THEM IS
  • 00:04:15.280 --> 00:04:16.260
  • HOW YOU HONOR THEM.
  • 00:04:16.260 --> 00:04:18.030
  • APPRECIATE THEM,
  • 00:04:18.030 --> 00:04:19.210
  • HONOR YOUR PARENTS,
  • 00:04:19.210 --> 00:04:20.240
  • THIRDLY, BY AFFIRMING THEM.
  • 00:04:20.240 --> 00:04:23.090
  • DO YOU KNOW THE BIBLE SAID:
  • 00:04:23.090 --> 00:04:24.080
  • "DO NOT WITHHOLD GOOD
  • 00:04:24.080 --> 00:04:26.060
  • FROM THOSE WHO DESERVE IT,
  • 00:04:26.060 --> 00:04:28.080
  • WHEN IT IS IN YOUR POWER
  • 00:04:28.080 --> 00:04:29.260
  • TO HELP THEM."
  • 00:04:29.260 --> 00:04:31.150
  • ACKNOWLEDGE THE GOOD
  • 00:04:31.150 --> 00:04:32.140
  • THAT THEY DO.
  • 00:04:32.140 --> 00:04:33.090
  • MOM, THAT WAS AN AWESOME MEAL.
  • 00:04:33.090 --> 00:04:35.010
  • THANK YOU.
  • 00:04:35.010 --> 00:04:35.240
  • DAD, THANK YOU FOR TAKING ME
  • 00:04:35.240 --> 00:04:37.130
  • TO THAT BALL GAME.
  • 00:04:37.130 --> 00:04:38.220
  • I ENJOYED IT.
  • 00:04:38.220 --> 00:04:40.000
  • ACKNOWLEDGE IT,
  • 00:04:40.000 --> 00:04:40.270
  • WE'RE HUMAN BEINGS TOO.
  • 00:04:40.270 --> 00:04:43.010
  • ACKNOWLEDGE IT.
  • 00:04:43.010 --> 00:04:43.200
  • YOU'LL GET A WHOLE LOT MORE
  • 00:04:43.200 --> 00:04:44.290
  • OUT OF YOUR PARENTS
  • 00:04:44.290 --> 00:04:46.120
  • IF YOU'LL PRAISE 'EM,
  • 00:04:46.120 --> 00:04:47.120
  • INSTEAD OF GIVE 'EM
  • 00:04:47.120 --> 00:04:48.040
  • YOUR ATTITUDE.
  • 00:04:48.040 --> 00:04:49.090
  • YOU WILL BE AMAZED,
  • 00:04:49.090 --> 00:04:50.030
  • AND AFTER THEY FAINT
  • 00:04:50.030 --> 00:04:51.270
  • AND RECOVER,
  • 00:04:51.270 --> 00:04:52.240
  • THEY'LL DEEPLY APPRECIATE IT
  • 00:04:52.240 --> 00:04:54.060
  • WHEN THEY HEAR YOU ACTUALLY
  • 00:04:54.060 --> 00:04:55.150
  • THANKING THEM
  • 00:04:55.150 --> 00:04:57.020
  • FOR WHAT THEY DO FOR YOU.
  • 00:04:57.020 --> 00:05:00.020
  • YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND
  • 00:05:00.020 --> 00:05:01.000
  • THAT IT'S TRAGIC
  • 00:05:01.000 --> 00:05:02.030
  • THAT SOME PEOPLE ONLY GIVE
  • 00:05:02.030 --> 00:05:03.130
  • HONOR TO THEIR PARENTS
  • 00:05:03.130 --> 00:05:04.180
  • AT THE FUNERAL,
  • 00:05:04.180 --> 00:05:05.240
  • WHEN IT'S TOO LATE.
  • 00:05:05.240 --> 00:05:07.180
  • NO DEGREE OF AN EXPENSE
  • 00:05:07.180 --> 00:05:09.140
  • AT A FUNERAL
  • 00:05:09.140 --> 00:05:10.130
  • IS EQUAL TO A THANK YOU,
  • 00:05:10.130 --> 00:05:12.090
  • A VISIT, A LETTER,
  • 00:05:12.090 --> 00:05:14.020
  • A PHONE CALL,
  • 00:05:14.020 --> 00:05:15.090
  • WHILE THEY ARE ALIVE
  • 00:05:15.090 --> 00:05:16.260
  • AND YOU STILL HAVE
  • 00:05:16.260 --> 00:05:18.050
  • THE OPPORTUNITY.
  • 00:05:18.050 --> 00:05:20.260
  • NUMBER FOUR, HONOR YOUR PARENTS
  • 00:05:20.260 --> 00:05:22.250
  • BY NOT ABANDONING THEM.
  • 00:05:23.180 --> 00:05:26.180
  • YOU HAVE TO LEARN
  • 00:05:26.180 --> 00:05:27.180
  • AS YOUR PARENTS
  • 00:05:27.180 --> 00:05:28.230
  • ARE GETTING OLDER
  • 00:05:28.230 --> 00:05:30.020
  • THAT YOU MUST JUGGLE
  • 00:05:30.020 --> 00:05:31.000
  • YOUR OWN RESPONSIBILITIES
  • 00:05:31.000 --> 00:05:32.270
  • WITH THE COMPLEX ISSUES
  • 00:05:32.270 --> 00:05:35.030
  • SOMETIMES FAMILIES FACE,
  • 00:05:35.030 --> 00:05:36.260
  • AS THE PARENTS
  • 00:05:36.260 --> 00:05:39.020
  • ARE GETTING OLDER.
  • 00:05:39.020 --> 00:05:40.180
  • THIS IS A CHARACTER THING.
  • 00:05:40.180 --> 00:05:42.180
  • THIS IS A BIG THING TO GOD,
  • 00:05:42.180 --> 00:05:45.150
  • HOW WE TREAT OUR PARENTS,
  • 00:05:45.150 --> 00:05:47.100
  • AND WE DON'T ABANDON THEM
  • 00:05:47.100 --> 00:05:49.070
  • AS THEY GET OLDER.
  • 00:05:49.070 --> 00:05:51.010
  • WE HONOR OUR PARENTS
  • 00:05:51.010 --> 00:05:52.030
  • IN THEIR OLD AGE
  • 00:05:52.030 --> 00:05:53.020
  • BY NOT ABANDONING THEM,
  • 00:05:53.020 --> 00:05:54.260
  • BY ASSISTING THEM
  • 00:05:54.260 --> 00:05:56.150
  • IN PRACTICAL WAYS.
  • 00:05:56.150 --> 00:05:57.270
  • WE OFFER SUPPORT FINANCIALLY,
  • 00:05:57.270 --> 00:06:00.040
  • WE OFFER ASSISTANCE
  • 00:06:00.040 --> 00:06:01.110
  • IN THEIR OLD AGE.
  • 00:06:01.110 --> 00:06:02.210
  • IF YOUR WIFE OR YOUR HUSBAND
  • 00:06:02.210 --> 00:06:04.120
  • LIKES IT OR NOT,
  • 00:06:04.120 --> 00:06:05.280
  • THAT IS WHAT YOU ARE REQUIRED
  • 00:06:05.280 --> 00:06:07.230
  • TO DO, AND YOU SHOULD DO IT,
  • 00:06:07.230 --> 00:06:09.240
  • AND GOD WILL BLESS YOU
  • 00:06:09.240 --> 00:06:11.060
  • FOR IT IN AMAZING WAYS.
  • 00:06:11.060 --> 00:06:14.040
  • I WANT TO SPEAK A WORD
  • 00:06:14.040 --> 00:06:14.290
  • TO THE CHILDREN,
  • 00:06:14.290 --> 00:06:15.290
  • PARTICULARLY THE TEENAGERS
  • 00:06:15.290 --> 00:06:16.250
  • THAT ARE HERE.
  • 00:06:16.250 --> 00:06:18.170
  • YOU KNOW, THE BIBLE SAYS:
  • 00:06:18.170 --> 00:06:19.150
  • "HONOR YOUR FATHER
  • 00:06:19.150 --> 00:06:20.200
  • AND YOUR MOTHER,"
  • 00:06:20.200 --> 00:06:21.140
  • AND WHEN YOU'RE WITH
  • 00:06:21.140 --> 00:06:22.090
  • YOUR TEENAGE FRIENDS
  • 00:06:22.090 --> 00:06:23.100
  • AND THEY TICK YOU OFF,
  • 00:06:23.100 --> 00:06:24.130
  • YOUR PARENTS DO,
  • 00:06:24.130 --> 00:06:25.120
  • AND YOU WALK OFF
  • 00:06:25.120 --> 00:06:26.040
  • AND UNDER YOUR BREATH,
  • 00:06:26.040 --> 00:06:27.030
  • YOU SAY, "I HATE MY PARENTS,"
  • 00:06:27.030 --> 00:06:28.200
  • I WANT TO CLUE YOU IN
  • 00:06:28.200 --> 00:06:29.290
  • ON SOMETHING.
  • 00:06:29.290 --> 00:06:30.260
  • WE DON'T LIKE YOU
  • 00:06:30.260 --> 00:06:31.290
  • MUCH SOMETIMES TOO.
  • 00:06:31.290 --> 00:06:34.200
  • IF YOU EVER WALK
  • 00:06:34.200 --> 00:06:35.180
  • INTO THE KITCHEN
  • 00:06:35.180 --> 00:06:36.260
  • AND YOUR PARENTS WERE TALKING,
  • 00:06:36.260 --> 00:06:38.040
  • AND THEY STOP TALKING,
  • 00:06:38.040 --> 00:06:39.140
  • AS A TEENAGER,
  • 00:06:39.140 --> 00:06:40.120
  • WHEN YOU WALK IN,
  • 00:06:40.120 --> 00:06:41.120
  • IT MEANS THEY WERE
  • 00:06:41.120 --> 00:06:42.030
  • TALKING ABOUT YOU.
  • 00:06:42.030 --> 00:06:44.020
  • AND SO, THIS THING
  • 00:06:44.020 --> 00:06:45.150
  • GOES TWO WAYS,
  • 00:06:45.150 --> 00:06:46.130
  • AND DON'T EVER FORGET IT.
  • 00:06:46.180 --> 00:06:49.180
  • A MOTHER COMMENTED
  • 00:06:49.180 --> 00:06:51.060
  • ABOUT HER TEENAGE DAUGHTER,
  • 00:06:51.060 --> 00:06:52.200
  • "SHE'S VERY INDEPENDENT.
  • 00:06:52.200 --> 00:06:54.020
  • SHE LIVES ALONE AT OUR HOUSE."
  • 00:06:55.070 --> 00:06:58.070
  • REMEMBER, PARENTS
  • 00:06:58.070 --> 00:06:59.110
  • ARE PEOPLE WITH FEELINGS TOO,
  • 00:06:59.110 --> 00:07:01.050
  • SO HONOR THEM.
  • 00:07:01.050 --> 00:07:02.160
  • WHEN YOU WALK AROUND
  • 00:07:02.160 --> 00:07:03.140
  • THE FURNITURE SO YOU DON'T HAVE
  • 00:07:03.140 --> 00:07:04.180
  • TO HUG 'EM OR KISS 'EM,
  • 00:07:04.180 --> 00:07:05.260
  • THAT'S NOT GOOD.
  • 00:07:05.260 --> 00:07:07.110
  • A FATHER SAID
  • 00:07:07.110 --> 00:07:08.080
  • TO A TEENAGE DAUGHTER,
  • 00:07:08.080 --> 00:07:09.120
  • "I WANT YOU HOME
  • 00:07:09.120 --> 00:07:10.040
  • FROM YOUR DATE
  • 00:07:10.040 --> 00:07:11.010
  • NO LATER THAN 11 P.M."
  • 00:07:11.010 --> 00:07:13.130
  • THE TEENAGE GIRL REPLIED,
  • 00:07:13.130 --> 00:07:14.260
  • "BUT DAD,
  • 00:07:14.260 --> 00:07:15.200
  • I'M NOT A CHILD ANYMORE."
  • 00:07:15.200 --> 00:07:17.030
  • AND THE FATHER SAID, "EXACTLY,
  • 00:07:17.030 --> 00:07:19.010
  • THAT'S WHY I WANT YOU HOME
  • 00:07:19.010 --> 00:07:20.280
  • AT 11 P.M."
  • 00:07:20.280 --> 00:07:22.210
  • WE'RE NOT STUPID.
  • 00:07:22.210 --> 00:07:24.220
  • I KNOW YOU THINK WE'RE STUPID,
  • 00:07:24.220 --> 00:07:26.180
  • BUT PARENTS ARE NOT STUPID.
  • 00:07:26.180 --> 00:07:29.120
  • TEENAGERS SAY, "I HATE IT
  • 00:07:29.120 --> 00:07:30.270
  • WHEN MY PARENTS REPEAT THINGS."
  • 00:07:30.270 --> 00:07:32.210
  • WELL, IF YOU WOULD LISTEN
  • 00:07:32.210 --> 00:07:33.260
  • THE FIRST TIME,
  • 00:07:33.260 --> 00:07:35.030
  • WE WOULDN'T HAVE TO SAY
  • 00:07:35.030 --> 00:07:36.080
  • IT OVER AND OVER
  • 00:07:36.080 --> 00:07:38.030
  • AND OVER AGAIN.
  • 00:07:38.230 --> 00:07:41.230
  • WAIT A MINUTE.
  • 00:07:41.230 --> 00:07:42.240
  • IF YOUR PARENTS TELL YOU TO DO
  • 00:07:42.240 --> 00:07:44.210
  • SOMETHING, ACKNOWLEDGE IT.
  • 00:07:44.210 --> 00:07:46.170
  • "YES, MA'AM."
  • 00:07:46.170 --> 00:07:47.190
  • "YES, SIR."
  • 00:07:47.190 --> 00:07:48.120
  • BECAUSE IF YOU SIT THERE
  • 00:07:48.120 --> 00:07:49.180
  • AND GET A DAZED LOOK
  • 00:07:49.180 --> 00:07:50.180
  • IN YOUR EYE,
  • 00:07:50.180 --> 00:07:51.240
  • WE WILL ASSUME YOU'RE ON DRUGS.
  • 00:07:51.240 --> 00:07:53.070
  • WE WILL -- WE DON'T TRUST YOU
  • 00:07:53.070 --> 00:07:55.120
  • AND WE KNOW THAT THAT'S
  • 00:07:55.120 --> 00:07:56.010
  • WHAT WE -- CHILDREN,
  • 00:07:56.010 --> 00:07:57.040
  • OBEY YOUR PARENTS.
  • 00:07:57.040 --> 00:07:58.260
  • THIS IS RIGHT --
  • 00:07:58.260 --> 00:08:00.090
  • THIS IS THE RIGHT THING TO DO
  • 00:08:00.090 --> 00:08:02.110
  • IN THE EYES OF THE LORD.
  • 00:08:02.110 --> 00:08:04.050
  • THAT'S A SCRIPTURE.
  • 00:08:04.050 --> 00:08:05.280
  • TEENAGERS, GET ALONG
  • 00:08:05.280 --> 00:08:07.010
  • WITH YOUR FAMILY.
  • 00:08:07.010 --> 00:08:08.120
  • DON'T BE SELFISH.
  • 00:08:08.120 --> 00:08:10.000
  • ADDRESS YOUR PARENTS
  • 00:08:10.000 --> 00:08:10.270
  • WITH RESPECT.
  • 00:08:10.270 --> 00:08:12.120
  • IT'S AMAZING HOW TEENAGERS
  • 00:08:12.120 --> 00:08:13.250
  • BECOME EXPERTS IN STATISTICS.
  • 00:08:14.160 --> 00:08:17.160
  • ANYTIME YOU TELL THEM NO,
  • 00:08:17.160 --> 00:08:19.040
  • THEIR FIRST RESPONSE IS,
  • 00:08:19.040 --> 00:08:20.250
  • "EVERYONE ELSE IS ALLOWED TO."
  • 00:08:20.250 --> 00:08:23.230
  • AND IT'S USUALLY BASED ON
  • 00:08:23.230 --> 00:08:24.170
  • A SURVEY OF ONE.
  • 00:08:24.280 --> 00:08:27.280
  • MARK TWAIN --
  • 00:08:27.280 --> 00:08:28.200
  • I LOVE THIS QUOTE.
  • 00:08:28.200 --> 00:08:29.170
  • MARK TWAIN SAID:
  • 00:08:29.170 --> 00:08:30.160
  • "WHEN I WAS 14,
  • 00:08:30.160 --> 00:08:31.260
  • MY FATHER WAS SO IGNORANT,
  • 00:08:31.260 --> 00:08:33.110
  • I COULD HARDLY BEAR HIM.
  • 00:08:33.110 --> 00:08:35.040
  • BUT BY THE TIME I WAS 21,
  • 00:08:35.040 --> 00:08:37.030
  • I WAS AMAZED TO SEE
  • 00:08:37.030 --> 00:08:38.100
  • HOW MUCH HE HAD LEARNED
  • 00:08:38.100 --> 00:08:39.230
  • OVER THE SEVEN YEARS."
  • 00:08:39.230 --> 00:08:42.140
  • IT'S SELDOM DAWNS ON TEENAGERS,
  • 00:08:42.140 --> 00:08:44.290
  • SOMEDAY WHEN THEY GROW UP,
  • 00:08:44.290 --> 00:08:47.250
  • THEY WILL KNOW AS LITTLE
  • 00:08:47.250 --> 00:08:48.280
  • AS THEIR PARENTS KNOW.
  • 00:08:48.280 --> 00:08:51.210
  • JESUS WAS THE ONLY TEENAGER
  • 00:08:51.210 --> 00:08:54.080
  • WHO KNEW MORE THAN
  • 00:08:54.080 --> 00:08:55.200
  • HIS PARENTS KNEW, AND YET,
  • 00:08:55.200 --> 00:08:57.160
  • HE SUBMITTED TO HIS PARENTS,
  • 00:08:57.160 --> 00:08:59.270
  • AND THE BIBLE SAID:
  • 00:08:59.270 --> 00:09:01.100
  • "HE WAS OBEDIENT UNTO THEM."
  • 00:09:02.270 --> 00:09:05.270
  • THE BEST REASON
  • 00:09:05.270 --> 00:09:06.200
  • FOR HONORING OUR PARENTS
  • 00:09:06.200 --> 00:09:08.200
  • IS BECAUSE GOD TELLS US
  • 00:09:08.200 --> 00:09:10.030
  • TO DO IT.
  • 00:09:10.030 --> 00:09:11.090
  • HONORING YOUR PARENTS,
  • 00:09:11.090 --> 00:09:12.080
  • NOT ONLY IMPACTS THEM,
  • 00:09:12.080 --> 00:09:14.030
  • IT IMPACTS YOU.
  • 00:09:14.030 --> 00:09:17.020
  • IT IS THE RECIPE FOR BLESSING
  • 00:09:17.020 --> 00:09:19.080
  • AND PROSPERITY AND LONG LIFE,
  • 00:09:19.080 --> 00:09:21.120
  • ACCORDING TO THE SCRIPTURE.
  • 00:09:21.120 --> 00:09:23.160
  • AND WHEN YOU DON'T HONOR THEM,
  • 00:09:23.160 --> 00:09:24.260
  • GOD WILL NOT HONOR YOU.
  • 00:09:24.260 --> 00:09:27.030
  • CHILDREN HAVE A DUTY
  • 00:09:27.030 --> 00:09:28.060
  • TO HONOR THEIR PARENTS,
  • 00:09:28.060 --> 00:09:29.130
  • AND PARENTS HAVE A DUTY
  • 00:09:29.130 --> 00:09:30.250
  • TO BE HONORABLE.
  • 00:09:30.250 --> 00:09:33.250
  • PARENTS MUST LIVE
  • 00:09:33.250 --> 00:09:34.240
  • A LIFE WORTHY OF HONOR.
  • 00:09:35.030 --> 00:09:38.030
  • THERE WAS SOME CHILDREN
  • 00:09:38.030 --> 00:09:39.120
  • WHO WERE SCREAMING
  • 00:09:39.120 --> 00:09:40.250
  • AND SHOUTING IN THEIR BEDROOM,
  • 00:09:40.250 --> 00:09:42.090
  • AND THE MOTHER WENT BACK
  • 00:09:42.090 --> 00:09:43.080
  • AND OPENED THE DOOR, AND SAID,
  • 00:09:43.080 --> 00:09:45.260
  • "WHY ARE YOU
  • 00:09:45.260 --> 00:09:46.150
  • CHILDREN SCREAMING?"
  • 00:09:46.150 --> 00:09:48.000
  • AND THEY SAID,
  • 00:09:48.000 --> 00:09:48.210
  • "WE'RE NOT SCREAMING, MOM.
  • 00:09:48.210 --> 00:09:50.050
  • WE'RE PLAYING DADDY AND MOMMY."
  • 00:09:52.170 --> 00:09:55.170
  • ONE OF THE BEST WAYS
  • 00:09:55.170 --> 00:09:56.160
  • TO CORRECT CHILDREN
  • 00:09:56.160 --> 00:09:58.020
  • IS TO CORRECT THE EXAMPLE
  • 00:09:58.020 --> 00:09:59.130
  • THAT YOU'RE SETTING FOR THEM.
  • 00:09:59.130 --> 00:10:02.090
  • HERE'S A SIMPLE TEST:
  • 00:10:02.090 --> 00:10:05.080
  • HOW'S YOUR LANGUAGE
  • 00:10:05.080 --> 00:10:06.010
  • AROUND YOUR CHILDREN?
  • 00:10:06.010 --> 00:10:08.080
  • HOW'S YOUR BEHAVIOR
  • 00:10:08.080 --> 00:10:09.100
  • AROUND YOUR CHILDREN?
  • 00:10:09.100 --> 00:10:11.150
  • HOW DO YOU MATCH UP
  • 00:10:11.150 --> 00:10:12.190
  • TO YOUR OWN RULES?
  • 00:10:12.190 --> 00:10:15.110
  • WHO IS OUR ROLE MODEL
  • 00:10:15.110 --> 00:10:16.120
  • FOR PARENTING?
  • 00:10:16.120 --> 00:10:17.100
  • OUR ROLE MODEL
  • 00:10:17.100 --> 00:10:18.070
  • IS OUR HEAVENLY FATHER, GOD.
  • 00:10:18.070 --> 00:10:20.280
  • HOW DOES GOD TREAT HIS CHILDREN?
  • 00:10:20.280 --> 00:10:23.180
  • WELL, THE BIBLE SAID:
  • 00:10:23.180 --> 00:10:24.050
  • "GOD IS CLOSE TO ALL
  • 00:10:24.050 --> 00:10:25.140
  • WHO CALL ON HIM,
  • 00:10:25.140 --> 00:10:26.190
  • FOR HE HEARS THEM."
  • 00:10:26.190 --> 00:10:28.170
  • GOD LISTENS TO US,
  • 00:10:28.170 --> 00:10:30.210
  • AND WE ARE TO LISTEN
  • 00:10:30.210 --> 00:10:31.210
  • TO OUR CHILDREN.
  • 00:10:31.210 --> 00:10:33.080
  • ONE TEENAGER SAID,
  • 00:10:33.080 --> 00:10:34.220
  • "HOME IS THE PLACE
  • 00:10:34.220 --> 00:10:35.220
  • WHERE YOU CAN SAY ANYTHING
  • 00:10:35.220 --> 00:10:36.250
  • YOU WANT TO, BECAUSE
  • 00:10:36.250 --> 00:10:37.290
  • NOBODY'S LISTENING ANYHOW."
  • 00:10:37.290 --> 00:10:40.250
  • LISTEN TO YOUR CHILDREN.
  • 00:10:40.250 --> 00:10:42.290
  • LISTEN TO WHAT THEY SAY.
  • 00:10:42.290 --> 00:10:45.040
  • SECONDLY, GOD UNDERSTANDS US.
  • 00:10:45.130 --> 00:10:48.130
  • THE BIBLE SAID THAT HOMES
  • 00:10:48.130 --> 00:10:49.170
  • ARE BUILT ON A FOUNDATION
  • 00:10:49.170 --> 00:10:50.250
  • OF WISDOM AND UNDERSTANDING
  • 00:10:50.290 --> 00:10:53.290
  • OF ONE ANOTHER.
  • 00:10:53.290 --> 00:10:55.150
  • THE PROOF WE UNDERSTAND
  • 00:10:55.150 --> 00:10:56.170
  • OUR CHILDREN
  • 00:10:56.170 --> 00:10:57.170
  • IS THAT WE'RE PATIENT WITH THEM.
  • 00:10:57.170 --> 00:10:59.280
  • ONE EXASPERATED FATHER SAID
  • 00:10:59.280 --> 00:11:01.260
  • TO HIS SON IN AGGRAVATION,
  • 00:11:02.020 --> 00:11:05.020
  • "WINSTON CHURCHILL,
  • 00:11:05.020 --> 00:11:06.080
  • WHEN HE WAS YOUR AGE,
  • 00:11:06.080 --> 00:11:08.180
  • WORKED A HARD, FULL-TIME JOB
  • 00:11:08.180 --> 00:11:11.140
  • ALL DAY, AND STUDIED HIS WORK --
  • 00:11:11.140 --> 00:11:13.260
  • HIS BOOKS AT NIGHT."
  • 00:11:13.260 --> 00:11:16.020
  • AND THE TEENAGE SON
  • 00:11:16.020 --> 00:11:16.260
  • SNAPPED BACK, "YES,
  • 00:11:16.260 --> 00:11:18.160
  • AND WHEN HE WAS YOUR AGE,
  • 00:11:18.160 --> 00:11:20.040
  • HE WAS PRIME MINISTER
  • 00:11:20.040 --> 00:11:21.020
  • OF ENGLAND, SO."
  • 00:11:21.170 --> 00:11:24.170
  • TWO OF THE BEST THINGS
  • 00:11:24.170 --> 00:11:25.170
  • THAT WE CAN GIVE OUR CHILDREN
  • 00:11:25.170 --> 00:11:27.150
  • ARE ROOTS AND WINGS.
  • 00:11:27.150 --> 00:11:30.080
  • GIVE 'EM ROOTS,
  • 00:11:30.080 --> 00:11:31.080
  • THAT THEY'RE FOUNDED
  • 00:11:31.080 --> 00:11:32.110
  • AND CONNECTED
  • 00:11:32.110 --> 00:11:33.230
  • AND THEY ARE ROOTS
  • 00:11:33.230 --> 00:11:34.240
  • TO GOD'S HOUSE,
  • 00:11:34.240 --> 00:11:36.050
  • AND ROOTS TO CHRISTIAN HERITAGE,
  • 00:11:36.050 --> 00:11:38.000
  • AND TAKE 'EM TO CHURCH,
  • 00:11:38.000 --> 00:11:40.030
  • AND DOING WHAT YOU'RE
  • 00:11:40.030 --> 00:11:40.230
  • DOING HERE TODAY.
  • 00:11:40.230 --> 00:11:42.100
  • THERE IS NO PRICE TAG
  • 00:11:42.100 --> 00:11:43.120
  • YOU CAN PUT ON IT.
  • 00:11:43.120 --> 00:11:44.170
  • IT MAY NOT SEEM LIKE IT'S IN --
  • 00:11:44.170 --> 00:11:45.290
  • IT'S EVEN MATTERING,
  • 00:11:45.290 --> 00:11:47.130
  • BUT IT MATTERS
  • 00:11:47.130 --> 00:11:48.270
  • WHEN YOU TAKE YOUR FAMILY
  • 00:11:48.270 --> 00:11:51.210
  • TO CHURCH, SUNDAY AFTER SUNDAY
  • 00:11:51.210 --> 00:11:53.160
  • AFTER SUNDAY.
  • 00:11:53.160 --> 00:11:54.160
  • IT IS A PRIORITY,
  • 00:11:54.160 --> 00:11:55.220
  • IT'S NOT A HIT, SKIP,
  • 00:11:55.220 --> 00:11:56.290
  • AND MISS THING.
  • 00:11:56.290 --> 00:11:57.170
  • IT'S HUGE, YOU ARE SHAPING
  • 00:11:57.170 --> 00:11:59.190
  • THEIR LIFE FOR A GENERATION.
  • 00:11:59.190 --> 00:12:01.170
  • YOU'RE GIVING THEM ROOTS,
  • 00:12:01.170 --> 00:12:03.010
  • AND THEN GIVE THEM WINGS,
  • 00:12:03.010 --> 00:12:04.140
  • AND LET THEM DREAM,
  • 00:12:04.140 --> 00:12:05.250
  • AND LET THEM FLY,
  • 00:12:05.250 --> 00:12:07.060
  • AND LET THEM DO AMAZING THINGS.
  • 00:12:07.060 --> 00:12:09.070
  • GRACE SAYS WE ARE LOVED
  • 00:12:09.070 --> 00:12:11.170
  • AND WE ARE ACCEPTED,
  • 00:12:11.170 --> 00:12:12.280
  • EVEN WHEN WE FAIL.
  • 00:12:12.280 --> 00:12:15.050
  • GIVE YOUR CHILDREN GRACE.
  • 00:12:15.050 --> 00:12:17.230
  • LOVE THEM AND ACCEPT THEM,
  • 00:12:17.230 --> 00:12:19.100
  • EVEN WHEN THEY FAIL.
  • 00:12:19.120 --> 00:12:22.120
  • ONE MAN SAID HIS MOM
  • 00:12:22.120 --> 00:12:23.120
  • WAS A TRAVEL AGENT
  • 00:12:23.120 --> 00:12:24.230
  • FOR GUILT TRIPS.
  • 00:12:25.000 --> 00:12:28.000
  • ADMIT IT WHEN YOU GOT IT WRONG,
  • 00:12:28.000 --> 00:12:30.070
  • IF YOU'RE A PARENT.
  • 00:12:30.070 --> 00:12:31.110
  • ADMIT IT WHEN YOU HAVE
  • 00:12:31.110 --> 00:12:34.070
  • DONE SOMETHING
  • 00:12:34.070 --> 00:12:35.100
  • AND IT'S NOT CORRECT.
  • 00:12:35.100 --> 00:12:36.260
  • ADMIT IT, KEEP YOUR PROMISES.
  • 00:12:36.260 --> 00:12:39.110
  • IT'S TOUGH,
  • 00:12:39.110 --> 00:12:40.010
  • BUT KEEP YOUR PROMISES.
  • 00:12:40.010 --> 00:12:41.100
  • IF YOU'LL SAY YOU'LL DO IT,
  • 00:12:41.100 --> 00:12:42.160
  • DO IT.
  • 00:12:42.160 --> 00:12:43.060
  • IF YOU SAY YOU WON'T DO IT,
  • 00:12:43.060 --> 00:12:44.080
  • THEN DON'T DO IT.
  • 00:12:44.080 --> 00:12:45.090
  • EVEN IF IT'S DIFFICULT,
  • 00:12:45.090 --> 00:12:47.110
  • KEEP YOUR PROMISES.
  • 00:12:47.110 --> 00:12:49.200
  • GOD LOVES US
  • 00:12:49.200 --> 00:12:51.020
  • AND HOW DOES GOD LOVE THE --
  • 00:12:51.020 --> 00:12:52.150
  • EXPRESS THAT LOVE TO US?
  • 00:12:52.150 --> 00:12:53.280
  • THROUGH AFFECTION,
  • 00:12:53.280 --> 00:12:55.020
  • THROUGH AFFIRMATION,
  • 00:12:55.020 --> 00:12:56.180
  • THROUGH ATTENTION.
  • 00:12:56.180 --> 00:12:57.250
  • AFFECTION IS HOW WE ARE
  • 00:12:57.250 --> 00:12:59.270
  • TO LOVE OUR CHILDREN.
  • 00:12:59.270 --> 00:13:01.170
  • AFFECTION MEANS
  • 00:13:01.170 --> 00:13:02.070
  • TOUCH, HUG, KISS.
  • 00:13:02.070 --> 00:13:05.010
  • TOUCH, HUG, KISS.
  • 00:13:05.010 --> 00:13:06.030
  • DO YOU TOUCH, DO YOU HUG,
  • 00:13:06.030 --> 00:13:07.120
  • DO YOU KISS?
  • 00:13:07.120 --> 00:13:09.040
  • AFFIRMATION IS PRAISE.
  • 00:13:09.040 --> 00:13:10.270
  • DO YOU SPEAK WELL?
  • 00:13:10.270 --> 00:13:12.040
  • DO YOU COMPLIMENT?
  • 00:13:12.040 --> 00:13:13.080
  • DO YOU SAY, "I'M PROUD?"
  • 00:13:13.080 --> 00:13:14.170
  • DO YOU SAY, "YOU'RE GREAT?"
  • 00:13:14.170 --> 00:13:16.000
  • DO YOU SAY, "YOU'RE INCREDIBLE.
  • 00:13:16.000 --> 00:13:17.160
  • I APPRECIATE YOU?"
  • 00:13:17.160 --> 00:13:18.210
  • SPEAK THAT WAY TO YOUR CHILDREN.
  • 00:13:18.280 --> 00:13:21.280
  • AND THEN, ATTENTION.
  • 00:13:21.280 --> 00:13:22.290
  • LISTEN WITH YOUR EYES.
  • 00:13:22.290 --> 00:13:24.170
  • LISTEN WITH YOUR EARS.
  • 00:13:24.170 --> 00:13:26.050
  • GIVE THEM YOUR ATTENTION.
  • 00:13:26.170 --> 00:13:29.170
  • GOD, FOURTHLY,
  • 00:13:29.170 --> 00:13:30.260
  • DISCIPLINES HIS CHILDREN,
  • 00:13:30.260 --> 00:13:32.160
  • AND IF WE'RE GOING TO BE
  • 00:13:32.160 --> 00:13:33.090
  • GOOD PARENTS, WE HAVE
  • 00:13:33.090 --> 00:13:34.130
  • TO DISCIPLINE OUR CHILDREN.
  • 00:13:34.130 --> 00:13:36.070
  • THE BIBLE SAID THAT THE --
  • 00:13:36.070 --> 00:13:37.060
  • IN HEBREWS:
  • 00:13:37.060 --> 00:13:38.180
  • "WHOM THE LORD LOVES,
  • 00:13:38.180 --> 00:13:40.010
  • HE DISCIPLINES."
  • 00:13:40.010 --> 00:13:41.280
  • IN OTHER WORDS, IF YOU,
  • 00:13:42.100 --> 00:13:45.100
  • AS A PARENT,
  • 00:13:45.100 --> 00:13:46.160
  • DO NOT DISCIPLINE YOUR CHILDREN,
  • 00:13:46.160 --> 00:13:48.140
  • YOU DO NOT LOVE YOUR CHILDREN.
  • 00:13:48.140 --> 00:13:50.130
  • YOU'RE WANTING TO BE
  • 00:13:50.130 --> 00:13:51.000
  • THEIR BUDDY,
  • 00:13:51.000 --> 00:13:51.170
  • YOU'RE WANTING TO BE
  • 00:13:51.170 --> 00:13:52.230
  • THEIR FRIEND,
  • 00:13:52.230 --> 00:13:55.040
  • AND WHAT THEY REALLY NEED
  • 00:13:55.040 --> 00:13:56.120
  • IS A PARENT
  • 00:13:56.120 --> 00:13:57.040
  • WHO WILL DISCIPLINE THEM,
  • 00:13:57.040 --> 00:13:58.280
  • SO THAT THEY WILL BE ALL
  • 00:13:58.280 --> 00:14:00.250
  • THAT GOD KNOWS THEY CAN BE,
  • 00:14:00.250 --> 00:14:02.260
  • AND DISCIPLINE IS IMPORTANT.
  • 00:14:02.260 --> 00:14:04.160
  • IT'S A SIGN OF LOVE
  • 00:14:04.160 --> 00:14:05.180
  • TO GIVE DISCIPLINE.
  • 00:14:05.180 --> 00:14:07.170
  • THERE ARE TOO MANY PARENTS
  • 00:14:07.170 --> 00:14:08.220
  • WHO TIE UP THEIR DOG AT NIGHT
  • 00:14:08.220 --> 00:14:10.190
  • AND LET THEIR KIDS RUN LOOSE.
  • 00:14:10.240 --> 00:14:13.240
  • SOME FAMILIES CAN TRACE
  • 00:14:13.240 --> 00:14:14.290
  • THEIR ROOTS AND ANCESTORS
  • 00:14:14.290 --> 00:14:16.070
  • FOR 300 YEARS,
  • 00:14:16.070 --> 00:14:17.160
  • BUT THEY CAN'T TELL YOU
  • 00:14:17.160 --> 00:14:18.130
  • WHERE THEIR TEENAGER
  • 00:14:18.130 --> 00:14:19.100
  • WAS LAST NIGHT.
  • 00:14:19.100 --> 00:14:21.120
  • IT IS OUR JOB AS PARENTS
  • 00:14:21.120 --> 00:14:23.240
  • TO DISCIPLINE OUR CHILDREN,
  • 00:14:23.240 --> 00:14:25.170
  • NOT LET 'EM RUN WILD
  • 00:14:25.170 --> 00:14:27.100
  • AND GO WHEREVER THEY WANT TO GO,
  • 00:14:27.100 --> 00:14:28.260
  • WITH WHOEVER THEY WANT TO GO,
  • 00:14:28.260 --> 00:14:30.200
  • AND REPORT NOTHING TO NOBODY.
  • 00:14:30.200 --> 00:14:33.070
  • IT IS YOUR JOB AS A PARENT
  • 00:14:33.070 --> 00:14:35.070
  • TO BE ALL INTO THAT.
  • 00:14:35.100 --> 00:14:38.100
  • THE BIBLE SAID
  • 00:14:38.100 --> 00:14:39.090
  • IF YOU REFUSE DISCIPLINE
  • 00:14:39.090 --> 00:14:40.090
  • TO YOUR CHILDREN, IT PROVES
  • 00:14:40.090 --> 00:14:42.270
  • THAT YOU DON'T LOVE THEM.
  • 00:14:43.010 --> 00:14:46.010
  • DON'T LAY DOWN
  • 00:14:46.010 --> 00:14:46.270
  • ANY RULES AS A PARENT
  • 00:14:46.270 --> 00:14:48.150
  • YOU'RE NOT PREPARED TO ENFORCE.
  • 00:14:49.150 --> 00:14:52.150
  • NOW, THERE ARE THREE THINGS
  • 00:14:52.150 --> 00:14:53.100
  • THAT WE'RE TO GIVE OUR CHILDREN.
  • 00:14:53.100 --> 00:14:55.010
  • NUMBER ONE,
  • 00:14:55.010 --> 00:14:55.190
  • WE'RE TO GIVE 'EM LIFE.
  • 00:14:55.190 --> 00:14:57.030
  • NUMBER TWO, WE'RE TO GIVE 'EM
  • 00:14:57.030 --> 00:14:58.040
  • LOVE, AND NUMBER THREE,
  • 00:14:58.040 --> 00:14:59.100
  • WE'RE TO GIVE 'EM LAUGHTER.
  • 00:14:59.100 --> 00:15:01.110
  • AND SO MANY PARENTS
  • 00:15:01.110 --> 00:15:02.160
  • NEED TO CHILL OUT.
  • 00:15:02.160 --> 00:15:04.040
  • SO MANY PARENTS NEED TO HAVE
  • 00:15:04.040 --> 00:15:05.180
  • FUN AGAIN IN THEIR FAMILY.
  • 00:15:05.180 --> 00:15:08.120
  • THREE RULES THAT
  • 00:15:08.120 --> 00:15:09.030
  • SHOULD BE IN EVERY HOME.
  • 00:15:09.030 --> 00:15:11.050
  • NUMBER ONE, BE FAIR.
  • 00:15:11.050 --> 00:15:13.020
  • NUMBER TWO, BE FIRM.
  • 00:15:13.020 --> 00:15:15.010
  • NUMBER THREE, BE FUN.
  • 00:15:15.010 --> 00:15:17.190
  • EVERYBODY SAY THAT WITH ME,
  • 00:15:17.190 --> 00:15:18.230
  • "BE FAIR, BE FIRM, BE FUN."
  • 00:15:19.050 --> 00:15:22.050
  • SAY IT AGAIN, "BE FAIR,
  • 00:15:22.050 --> 00:15:24.180
  • BE FIRM, AND BE FUN."
  • 00:15:24.180 --> 00:15:27.020
  • YOU WANT A HAPPY MARRIAGE,
  • 00:15:27.020 --> 00:15:28.190
  • YOU WANT A HAPPY FAMILY,
  • 00:15:28.190 --> 00:15:29.200
  • YOU WANT A HAPPY --
  • 00:15:29.200 --> 00:15:30.160
  • SOMETIMES, YOU CAN'T BE
  • 00:15:30.160 --> 00:15:32.080
  • THEIR LITTLE BUDDY-BUDDY.
  • 00:15:32.080 --> 00:15:33.160
  • THERE ARE TIMES
  • 00:15:33.160 --> 00:15:34.060
  • WHEN I KNOW WHEN I SAY NO,
  • 00:15:34.060 --> 00:15:36.140
  • THAT I'M GOING TO HAVE
  • 00:15:36.140 --> 00:15:37.140
  • AN ATMOSPHERE IN MY HOME
  • 00:15:37.140 --> 00:15:39.240
  • FOR THE NEXT FEW DAYS,
  • 00:15:39.240 --> 00:15:40.240
  • IT'S GOING TO BE AN ISSUE.
  • 00:15:40.240 --> 00:15:42.110
  • THAT'S PART OF
  • 00:15:42.110 --> 00:15:43.050
  • WHAT A PARENT DOES.
  • 00:15:43.050 --> 00:15:44.280
  • THEY DON'T UNDERSTAND IT NOW,
  • 00:15:44.280 --> 00:15:46.170
  • BUT ONE DAY,
  • 00:15:46.170 --> 00:15:47.010
  • THEY'LL BE THE PARENT,
  • 00:15:47.010 --> 00:15:48.090
  • AND YOU'RE TRAINING THEM
  • 00:15:48.090 --> 00:15:49.080
  • HOW TO RAISE THEIR CHILDREN.
  • 00:15:49.080 --> 00:15:50.250
  • AND EVERYBODY THINKS,
  • 00:15:50.250 --> 00:15:51.230
  • WHEN I'M A PARENT,
  • 00:15:51.230 --> 00:15:52.250
  • I'LL LET 'EM DO WHATEVER.
  • 00:15:52.250 --> 00:15:54.170
  • OKAY.
  • 00:15:55.150 --> 00:15:58.150
  • YOU HAVE BRAIN DAMAGE
  • 00:15:58.150 --> 00:15:59.220
  • UNTIL YOU'RE 21, BY THE WAY.
  • 00:15:59.220 --> 00:16:01.160
  • YOUR BRAIN IS STILL GROWING,
  • 00:16:01.160 --> 00:16:03.030
  • THAT'S A MEDICAL FACT,
  • 00:16:03.030 --> 00:16:04.180
  • AND YOU DON'T EVEN HAVE
  • 00:16:04.180 --> 00:16:05.130
  • ALL YOUR BRAINS,
  • 00:16:05.130 --> 00:16:07.170
  • UNTIL YOU'RE 21.
  • 00:16:07.170 --> 00:16:09.090
  • HOW ABOUT THAT?
  • 00:16:09.090 --> 00:16:11.060
  • TELL SOMEBODY, "BE FAIR,
  • 00:16:11.060 --> 00:16:12.090
  • BE FIRM, BE FUN."
  • 00:16:12.290 --> 00:16:15.290
  • EVEN IF MY FATHER AND MY MOTHER
  • 00:16:15.290 --> 00:16:17.170
  • ABANDONED ME,
  • 00:16:17.170 --> 00:16:18.070
  • GOD WILL HOLD ME CLOSE,
  • 00:16:18.070 --> 00:16:19.170
  • THE SCRIPTURE SAID IN PSALMS.
  • 00:16:20.120 --> 00:16:23.120
  • IF YOU'VE BEEN ABANDONED,
  • 00:16:23.120 --> 00:16:24.140
  • GOD SAYS, "I WANT
  • 00:16:24.140 --> 00:16:25.150
  • TO HOLD YOU CLOSE."
  • 00:16:25.150 --> 00:16:27.100
  • JESUS SAID,
  • 00:16:27.100 --> 00:16:28.060
  • "I'LL NEVER ABANDON YOU.
  • 00:16:28.060 --> 00:16:29.280
  • I'LL NEVER LEAVE YOU.
  • 00:16:29.280 --> 00:16:31.050
  • I'LL NEVER FORSAKE YOU."
  • 00:16:31.050 --> 00:16:33.170
  • UNRESOLVED RESENTMENT
  • 00:16:33.170 --> 00:16:36.050
  • IS WHAT DESTROYS FAMILIES,
  • 00:16:36.050 --> 00:16:37.260
  • MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE.
  • 00:16:37.260 --> 00:16:40.160
  • WE MUST LEARN TO FORGIVE.
  • 00:16:40.160 --> 00:16:42.070
  • ONE DEFINITION OF FORGIVE MEANS,
  • 00:16:42.070 --> 00:16:44.120
  • "TO GIVE UP ANGER
  • 00:16:44.120 --> 00:16:46.010
  • AND NEED FOR REVENGE."
  • 00:16:46.010 --> 00:16:48.050
  • "TO GIVE UP ANGER
  • 00:16:48.050 --> 00:16:50.160
  • AND NEED FOR REVENGE."
  • 00:16:50.160 --> 00:16:52.120
  • IF YOU STILL HAVE ANGER
  • 00:16:52.120 --> 00:16:55.050
  • AND A NEED FOR REVENGE,
  • 00:16:55.050 --> 00:16:56.290
  • YOU HAVE NOT FORGIVEN.
  • 00:16:56.290 --> 00:16:59.190
  • ANOTHER TRANSLATION
  • 00:16:59.190 --> 00:17:01.060
  • OF THE WORD FORGIVE MEANS,
  • 00:17:01.060 --> 00:17:02.130
  • "TO SHOW MERCY AND GRACE."
  • 00:17:03.030 --> 00:17:06.030
  • TO GIVE UP ANGER
  • 00:17:06.030 --> 00:17:07.180
  • AND NEED FOR REVENGE,
  • 00:17:07.180 --> 00:17:09.080
  • TO SHOW MERCY AND GRACE.
  • 00:17:09.080 --> 00:17:11.050
  • THE BOOK OF ROMANS
  • 00:17:11.050 --> 00:17:11.220
  • PUTS IT THIS WAY:
  • 00:17:11.220 --> 00:17:13.110
  • "DO YOUR PART TO LIVE IN PEACE
  • 00:17:13.110 --> 00:17:15.200
  • WITH EVERYONE
  • 00:17:15.200 --> 00:17:16.260
  • AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE."
  • 00:17:17.080 --> 00:17:20.080
  • FORGIVE YOUR PARENTS.
  • 00:17:20.080 --> 00:17:21.150
  • RECEIVE FORGIVENESS FROM GOD.
  • 00:17:21.150 --> 00:17:23.180
  • FORGIVE YOURSELF.
  • 00:17:23.180 --> 00:17:25.040
  • IF YOU DON'T FORGIVE
  • 00:17:25.040 --> 00:17:26.100
  • YOUR PARENTS,
  • 00:17:26.100 --> 00:17:28.070
  • YOU BREAK THE BRIDGE
  • 00:17:28.070 --> 00:17:29.290
  • OVER WHICH YOU MUST PASS
  • 00:17:29.290 --> 00:17:31.140
  • TO FORGIVENESS WITH GOD.
  • 00:17:33.020 --> 00:17:36.020
  • GOD LOVES EACH OF US AS
  • 00:17:36.020 --> 00:17:38.150
  • IF THERE WAS ONLY ONE OF US.
  • 00:17:40.090 --> 00:17:43.090
  • AND IN THE STORY
  • 00:17:43.090 --> 00:17:43.260
  • OF THE PRODIGAL SON,
  • 00:17:43.260 --> 00:17:45.020
  • THE SON WAS LOST,
  • 00:17:45.020 --> 00:17:46.040
  • AND HE WENT AWAY,
  • 00:17:46.040 --> 00:17:47.120
  • AND HE TOOK ALL THAT HE HAD.
  • 00:17:47.120 --> 00:17:50.080
  • AND NOTICE THE KEY TO
  • 00:17:50.080 --> 00:17:51.060
  • THAT STORY, HE HAD TO RETURN
  • 00:17:51.060 --> 00:17:53.170
  • TO BE RESTORED.
  • 00:17:53.280 --> 00:17:56.280
  • AND WE CAN ONLY RESTORE
  • 00:17:56.280 --> 00:17:59.040
  • THOSE WHO RETURN,
  • 00:17:59.040 --> 00:18:00.240
  • AND THERE ARE TWO KINDS
  • 00:18:00.240 --> 00:18:01.180
  • OF PEOPLE THAT ARE IN THIS ROOM
  • 00:18:01.180 --> 00:18:03.060
  • AND ARE LISTENING TO ME,
  • 00:18:03.060 --> 00:18:04.070
  • THOSE WHO WERE PRODIGALS,
  • 00:18:04.070 --> 00:18:05.290
  • THOSE WHO WERE RUNNING
  • 00:18:05.290 --> 00:18:06.170
  • FROM THE FATHER,
  • 00:18:06.170 --> 00:18:07.090
  • THOSE WHO WERE RUNNING FROM GOD,
  • 00:18:07.090 --> 00:18:08.230
  • THOSE WHO MAY HAVE RUN
  • 00:18:08.230 --> 00:18:09.260
  • FROM YOUR OWN PARENTS AND HOME,
  • 00:18:09.260 --> 00:18:12.040
  • AND YOU'RE OUT,
  • 00:18:12.040 --> 00:18:12.250
  • DOING YOUR OWN THING.
  • 00:18:12.250 --> 00:18:14.180
  • THERE'S THE PRODIGALS,
  • 00:18:14.180 --> 00:18:15.200
  • AND THERE'S THOSE OF US
  • 00:18:15.200 --> 00:18:16.230
  • WHO WERE PRODIGALS.
  • 00:18:16.230 --> 00:18:18.150
  • THAT'S THE ONLY TWO KINDS
  • 00:18:18.150 --> 00:18:19.100
  • OF PEOPLE THERE ARE.
  • 00:18:19.100 --> 00:18:21.250
  • AND, YOU KNOW, I THOUGHT
  • 00:18:21.250 --> 00:18:23.140
  • ABOUT THE SCRIPTURE,
  • 00:18:23.140 --> 00:18:25.010
  • AND HOW THE ENEMY WANTS
  • 00:18:25.010 --> 00:18:26.020
  • TO DIVIDE OUR FAMILIES,
  • 00:18:26.020 --> 00:18:28.150
  • AND I WANT YOU TO LISTEN
  • 00:18:28.150 --> 00:18:29.260
  • TO THIS SCRIPTURE
  • 00:18:29.260 --> 00:18:30.160
  • IN ECCLESIASTES 4:9.
  • 00:18:32.130 --> 00:18:35.130
  • IT SAYS: "TWO ARE BETTER
  • 00:18:35.130 --> 00:18:36.120
  • THAN ONE, BECAUSE THEY HAVE
  • 00:18:36.120 --> 00:18:38.050
  • GOOD REWARD FOR THEIR LABOR.
  • 00:18:38.050 --> 00:18:40.070
  • FOR IF THEY FALL,
  • 00:18:40.070 --> 00:18:41.230
  • ONE WILL LIFT UP HIS COMPANION,
  • 00:18:41.230 --> 00:18:44.000
  • BUT WOE UNTO HIM
  • 00:18:44.000 --> 00:18:45.230
  • WHO IS ALONE WHEN HE FALLS.
  • 00:18:45.230 --> 00:18:48.050
  • FOR HE HAS NO ONE
  • 00:18:48.050 --> 00:18:49.260
  • TO HELP HIM UP."
  • 00:18:49.260 --> 00:18:52.060
  • AND THEN, THERE'S ONE OTHER
  • 00:18:52.060 --> 00:18:53.060
  • QUICK SCRIPTURE I WANT
  • 00:18:53.060 --> 00:18:54.090
  • TO GIVE YOU BEFORE I GIVE YOU
  • 00:18:54.090 --> 00:18:55.190
  • AN ILLUSTRATION,
  • 00:18:55.190 --> 00:18:56.190
  • AND WE PRAY OVER OUR FAMILIES.
  • 00:18:56.190 --> 00:18:58.040
  • AND IT'S OUT OF
  • 00:18:58.040 --> 00:18:58.250
  • THE BOOK OF HEBREWS,
  • 00:18:58.250 --> 00:18:59.210
  • WHERE IT SAYS:
  • 00:18:59.210 --> 00:19:01.060
  • "DO NOT FORSAKE THE ASSEMBLING
  • 00:19:01.060 --> 00:19:04.020
  • OF YOURSELVES TOGETHER.
  • 00:19:04.020 --> 00:19:06.280
  • FOR SUCH IS THE MANNER OF SOME."
  • 00:19:07.290 --> 00:19:10.290
  • BUT LISTEN TO THIS:
  • 00:19:10.290 --> 00:19:12.140
  • "BUT SO MUCH MORE
  • 00:19:12.140 --> 00:19:13.130
  • YOU SHOULD ASSEMBLE TOGETHER,
  • 00:19:13.130 --> 00:19:15.070
  • AS YOU SEE THE DAY APPROACHING."
  • 00:19:15.070 --> 00:19:17.280
  • NOW, LOOK UP HERE AT ME.
  • 00:19:17.280 --> 00:19:19.160
  • HE SAID, "THE MORE YOU SEE EVIL
  • 00:19:19.160 --> 00:19:22.120
  • AND YOU SEE THE COMING
  • 00:19:22.120 --> 00:19:23.150
  • OF THE LORD AND YOU SEE
  • 00:19:23.150 --> 00:19:25.140
  • TROUBLE IN THE WORLD
  • 00:19:25.140 --> 00:19:27.080
  • AND TROUBLE IN FAMILIES, IS --
  • 00:19:27.080 --> 00:19:29.240
  • DON'T FAIL TO ASSEMBLE."
  • 00:19:29.240 --> 00:19:32.190
  • WE'RE BETTER TOGETHER.
  • 00:19:32.200 --> 00:19:35.200
  • THE ENEMY DOES NOT WANT US
  • 00:19:35.200 --> 00:19:37.040
  • TO GET TOGETHER.
  • 00:19:37.040 --> 00:19:38.210
  • THE MORE STUFF GOING ON
  • 00:19:38.210 --> 00:19:39.260
  • OUT THERE, COME IN,
  • 00:19:39.260 --> 00:19:41.150
  • AND GET TOGETHER.
  • 00:19:41.150 --> 00:19:42.100
  • WITH YOUR FAMILY
  • 00:19:42.100 --> 00:19:43.180
  • AND WITH YOUR CHURCH.
  • 00:19:43.180 --> 00:19:46.100
  • HE DIDN'T SAY, "DO IT LESS."
  • 00:19:46.100 --> 00:19:47.280
  • PEOPLE ARE GOING TO CHURCH --
  • 00:19:47.280 --> 00:19:49.220
  • IT'S A FACT, THEY'RE GOING
  • 00:19:49.220 --> 00:19:51.020
  • TO CHURCH LESS NOW
  • 00:19:51.020 --> 00:19:52.180
  • THAN THEY'VE EVER
  • 00:19:52.180 --> 00:19:53.060
  • GONE IN HISTORY.
  • 00:19:53.140 --> 00:19:56.140
  • THEY'RE NOT DOING IT MORE,
  • 00:19:56.140 --> 00:19:58.030
  • THEY'RE DOING IT LESS,
  • 00:19:58.030 --> 00:19:59.090
  • AND THE ENEMY IS
  • 00:19:59.090 --> 00:20:00.090
  • BEATING OUR BRAINS OUT
  • 00:20:00.090 --> 00:20:01.200
  • AND DESTROYING OUR FAMILIES.
  • 00:20:01.200 --> 00:20:04.050
  • HE SAID, "WHEN IT GETS BAD
  • 00:20:04.050 --> 00:20:05.140
  • OUT THERE AND YOU SEE
  • 00:20:05.140 --> 00:20:06.110
  • THE STUFF HAPPENING OUT THERE,
  • 00:20:06.110 --> 00:20:08.090
  • ASSEMBLE TOGETHER."
  • 00:20:08.190 --> 00:20:11.190
  • I READ IN THE ATLANTA
  • 00:20:11.190 --> 00:20:12.160
  • CONSTITUTION, ANDY STANLEY WROTE
  • 00:20:12.160 --> 00:20:14.220
  • A GREAT BOOK,
  • 00:20:14.220 --> 00:20:15.170
  • AND HE SHARED VERY OPENLY
  • 00:20:15.170 --> 00:20:16.290
  • ABOUT HOW HE AND HIS FATHER,
  • 00:20:16.290 --> 00:20:18.200
  • DR. CHARLES STANLEY,
  • 00:20:18.200 --> 00:20:19.230
  • WHO IS AN AMAZING MINISTER,
  • 00:20:19.230 --> 00:20:21.120
  • BOTH OF THOSE GUYS
  • 00:20:21.120 --> 00:20:22.080
  • ARE AMAZING MINISTERS,
  • 00:20:22.080 --> 00:20:23.090
  • AND YET, THE ENEMY GOT IN,
  • 00:20:23.090 --> 00:20:25.000
  • AND DIVIDED THEIR HOME
  • 00:20:25.000 --> 00:20:26.130
  • AND DIVIDED FATHER AGAINST SON
  • 00:20:26.130 --> 00:20:28.070
  • THROUGH A TERRIBLE SITUATION,
  • 00:20:28.070 --> 00:20:31.000
  • AND THE DIVORCE THAT HAPPENED,
  • 00:20:31.000 --> 00:20:32.150
  • AND ANDY AND HIS FATHER
  • 00:20:32.150 --> 00:20:34.250
  • WERE JUST REALLY --
  • 00:20:34.250 --> 00:20:36.090
  • THEY WERE SHATTERED
  • 00:20:36.090 --> 00:20:37.240
  • IN THEIR RELATIONSHIP,
  • 00:20:37.240 --> 00:20:38.230
  • BUT HE SAID HIS FATHER
  • 00:20:38.230 --> 00:20:39.250
  • DID SOMETHING
  • 00:20:39.250 --> 00:20:40.180
  • THAT WAS BRILLIANT.
  • 00:20:40.180 --> 00:20:42.020
  • HE SAID HIS FATHER WOULD
  • 00:20:42.020 --> 00:20:43.140
  • CALL HIM EVERY WEEK,
  • 00:20:43.140 --> 00:20:45.140
  • AND HE SAID, "SOMETIMES,
  • 00:20:45.140 --> 00:20:46.120
  • WE WERE SO MAD AT EACH OTHER,
  • 00:20:46.120 --> 00:20:47.270
  • WE COULDN'T EVEN SPEAK."
  • 00:20:47.270 --> 00:20:49.080
  • HE SAID, "SOMETIMES,
  • 00:20:49.080 --> 00:20:50.050
  • WE WERE SO UPSET
  • 00:20:50.050 --> 00:20:51.150
  • WITH ONE ANOTHER,
  • 00:20:51.150 --> 00:20:52.110
  • I DIDN'T WANT TO BE AROUND HIM."
  • 00:20:52.110 --> 00:20:53.160
  • BUT HE SAID, "MY FATHER
  • 00:20:53.160 --> 00:20:54.210
  • HAD A MEXICAN RESTAURANT
  • 00:20:54.210 --> 00:20:56.140
  • THAT HE WOULD MAKE ME
  • 00:20:56.140 --> 00:20:57.100
  • MEET HIM AT FOR LUNCH,
  • 00:20:57.100 --> 00:20:59.050
  • ONCE A WEEK."
  • 00:20:59.050 --> 00:21:00.180
  • AND HE SAID, "THERE WERE TIMES
  • 00:21:00.180 --> 00:21:01.240
  • WHEN WE WENT IN,
  • 00:21:01.240 --> 00:21:02.100
  • AND WE WERE DIPPING CHIPS
  • 00:21:02.100 --> 00:21:03.120
  • IN HOT SAUCE,
  • 00:21:03.120 --> 00:21:04.120
  • AND WE COULDN'T HARDLY
  • 00:21:04.120 --> 00:21:05.090
  • STAND EACH OTHER.
  • 00:21:05.090 --> 00:21:06.020
  • BUT EVERY WEEK, AFTER WEEK,
  • 00:21:06.020 --> 00:21:08.230
  • AFTER WEEK, AFTER WEEK,
  • 00:21:08.230 --> 00:21:10.100
  • WE KEPT COMING TOGETHER."
  • 00:21:10.100 --> 00:21:11.290
  • THE COLDER IT GETS,
  • 00:21:11.290 --> 00:21:13.000
  • THE MORE YOU GET TOGETHER.
  • 00:21:13.000 --> 00:21:14.110
  • THE ENEMY SAYS,
  • 00:21:14.110 --> 00:21:15.180
  • "THE COLDER IT GETS,
  • 00:21:15.180 --> 00:21:16.200
  • JUST GO YOUR SEPARATE WAYS,
  • 00:21:16.200 --> 00:21:18.040
  • AND LET THE COLD KILL YOU."
  • 00:21:18.040 --> 00:21:20.140
  • BUT THE WAY
  • 00:21:20.140 --> 00:21:20.250
  • YOU HOLD IT TOGETHER,
  • 00:21:20.250 --> 00:21:21.090
  • I DON'T CARE WHAT'S HAPPENING
  • 00:21:21.090 --> 00:21:22.170
  • IN YOUR FAMILY,
  • 00:21:22.170 --> 00:21:23.140
  • DON'T YOU LET THE ENEMY
  • 00:21:23.140 --> 00:21:24.210
  • DIVIDE YOU
  • 00:21:24.210 --> 00:21:25.170
  • FROM YOUR OWN FLESH AND BLOOD.
  • 00:21:25.170 --> 00:21:27.200
  • I'M GOING TO BE IN YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:21:27.200 --> 00:21:29.050
  • I'M GOING TO LOVE YOU,
  • 00:21:29.050 --> 00:21:30.280
  • I'M GOING TO CALL YOU,
  • 00:21:30.280 --> 00:21:32.120
  • I'M GOING TO --
  • 00:21:32.120 --> 00:21:33.050
  • I'M GETTING IN YOUR --
  • 00:21:33.050 --> 00:21:34.250
  • I'M COMING BACK,
  • 00:21:34.250 --> 00:21:35.170
  • AND SOMETIMES, WE DON'T EVEN
  • 00:21:35.170 --> 00:21:37.130
  • LIKE TO BE AROUND EACH OTHER,
  • 00:21:37.130 --> 00:21:38.230
  • BUT WE'RE GOING TO BE
  • 00:21:38.230 --> 00:21:39.150
  • AROUND EACH OTHER,
  • 00:21:39.150 --> 00:21:40.100
  • 'CAUSE WE'RE A FAMILY.
  • 00:21:40.100 --> 00:21:42.020
  • AND WHAT'S AMAZING
  • 00:21:42.020 --> 00:21:43.040
  • IS THEY KEPT DOING THAT,
  • 00:21:43.040 --> 00:21:44.010
  • AND LITTLE BY LITTLE,
  • 00:21:44.010 --> 00:21:45.040
  • THE WALLS STARTED FALLING.
  • 00:21:45.040 --> 00:21:46.150
  • AND LITTLE BY LITTLE,
  • 00:21:46.150 --> 00:21:47.100
  • THEY STARTED REACHING OUT,
  • 00:21:47.100 --> 00:21:48.120
  • AND LITTLE BY LITTLE,
  • 00:21:48.120 --> 00:21:49.100
  • NOW, THEY'RE TOTALLY HEALED
