Family Talk: A song for teens

Parents, are you tired of pop songs that play on the radio that talk about nothing but sex and how hot girls are, or, more precisely, how big their booties are?

I heard this song on Positively Pinoy. I was happy to discover that you can download the app and also listen from their website HERE.

Heart of Gold - Perkins Twins

By the way, I was happy to see that their background in the video is the building of Christ's Commission Fellowship (CCF) along C-5. Do check out their site HERE.

The reason I bring up CCF is because I recently came across this video from them:

If you don't have time to watch the video, what particularly struck me about the talk was that Pastor Bong said there is no such thing as "teens." As soon as they hit 13, they're already young adults and they're already looking around for their possible marriage partner.

You may or may not agree with him, but it's a truth that the headache that comes with puberty is that teens do start searching for boyfriends or girlfriends. Regardless if their intention is marriage or just fooling around, it might be a good idea to sit down and talk with them regarding what they should look for in a partner.

I think the song "Heart of Gold" by the Perkins Twins is a good reminder of what teens should look for in others and what they should seek to aspire to for themselves. We all want to have a heart of gold.

And if the person you're in a relationship with DOES NOT have a heart of gold, maybe you should also love yourself enough to realize what your true worth is. Under God's eyes, you are very much loved. Does he or she love you that a heavenly Father would want for you?
