Coke ad for Young Couples

6 01 2014

In our “hook-up” culture of sex without responsibility, getting pregnant is seen as a mistake, often used with the adjective “unwanted”.  “Safe sex” is seen as an option for birth control because babies…well…get in the way of life. On the other hand, bringing a child into the world is an eternal gift from God Almighty. No baby is an accident and no pregnancy should be taken lightly. If someone is not mature enough to bring a life into this world, then they are not ready for sex. Period. On top of those words, God’s Word requires the maturity and commitment of marriage before becoming intimate. “Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled; but fornicators and adulterers God will judge.”  Hebrews 13:4 

There is a good reason for such restrictions: parenting is not for wimps. I have raised three children and counted it a joy nearly every moment. Sure, it was difficult at times, but I always considered it as one of life’s greatest blessings. Now my children are in their 30’s and I have 5 grandchildren.

This Coke commercial is only one minute long, but nails home the responsibilities and joys of parenting. It’s funny yet very real.
