Scripture Reading:  1 Cor. 9:27.

Memory verse for the week:    2 Cor.10:12

“For we dare not class ourselves or compare ourselves with those who commend themselves. But they, measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.” (NKJV)

Simply put, hormones are chemicals produced by the body to help one part of the body communicate with another, by sending signals to certain organs, tissues, and cells. Sexual hormones include testosterone in males; estrogen & progesterone in females.

Nice one! Thanks to my Biology teacher (Smiley tins…lolzz). The hormones mentioned above are responsible for puberty common to the teenage years. Unfortunately, these hormones have left many careless teenagers in trouble.

Bode and Tade are notable for their Romeo and Juliet type of life in school. Both are always seen in the corners of the school premises in the day time and at night. All to no avail have their teachers tried to checkmate their excesses. They went about freely without caution after the dictates of their hormonal body changes. Today, Tade is out of school after a complicated abortion, and Bode has since absconded!

There is this natural attraction between members of the opposite sex at puberty. This notwithstanding must be well handled. You shouldn’t be hanging around with that boy in the wee hours of the night, or in that dark corner. It reduces your self-resistance. Many have made themselves a victim of sexual assault due to carelessness. Secrets only happen in the secret. Be warned!

God gave Adam the Garden of Eden but required of him to manage it effectively. Genesis 2:15.  Your body is given to you to manage effectively.



  1. Iput my body under subjection, in the mighty name of Jesus.
  2. My hormones, hear the word of the Lord, you shall not destroy my destiny in the name of Jesus.
