Question Box Friday on a Monday

Why did God give us sexual urges at such a young age?

This was a great question we got from a student. Thom gave a pretty insightful answer. He said that he thought God gave us sexual urges at a young age as a way for us to train ourselves in the self-mastery we all need in order to direct our desires towards what is good. For example, by practicing self-control over our sexual desires before marriage, we will be better equipped and empowered to practice that same self-control within marriage and therefore remain faith to our spouse.
