Teen Tip

I want to open a new category for teens and their parents. The idea is still THINKING THRU THE BIBLE from a Reformed perspective. And, of course, it is about women of all ages embracing faith in Jesus as their Savior.

Today I heard and watched a guy on a jet ski racing around the river. He was using the jet ski to pull another boy on a board. What made me notice them was the rage and anger directed by the driver toward the other person who fell off the board. He was SO…OOO mad at him for falling!

It reminded me of how telling an incident like that can be. It is like a WARNING sign. If you were out with a guy (with a group or alone) who acted in such an outburst of anger, remember this:

“An angry man stirs up strife,
And a furious man abounds in transgression.” (Proverbs 29:22)

“A fool vents all his feelings,
But a wise man holds them back. (29:11)

Beware of getting into a serious relationship with someone like that. Don’t date them! It could mean trouble down the road!

About Carol Brandt

I earned a B.A. in History from Florida State University and M.Ed in.Higher Education from Florida Atlantic University. I taught high school social studies before “retiring” to full-time homemaking and raising two daughters. Now I love being a grandmother to four boys and a girl. I have also raised five collies.

My husband, John, was an optometrist, who worked tirelessly for his profession through private practice and as a consultant, and served on the Board of Trustees of Illinois College of Optometry for twenty years.

Ernest Reisinger was my chief mentor in this warm-hearted application of Calvinism. He gave me many books! The Founders Journal and Founders Conferences, Martyn Lloyd-Jones, and Charles Spurgeon have been other sources of Reformed thinking as well as the other warm-hearted ones listed in my book, “Warm-hearted Calvinists.”
