God provides the home and sets the family up to be a safe haven from the hustle and bustle of the world. Home is where you are groomed and trained to face life once you are grown. Home is the safest place to be until you reach the age of maturity where you can then face the world with confidence. Sisters, I encourage you not to be in a hurry to leave the comforts of your home—no matter how bad you think the situation may be.

I strongly believe that as a young black woman, you ought to stay home until you get married. I know this sounds old fashioned, but it is the wisest thing that you can do. God has provided two protections for you as a woman—that of your parents and the other of your husband.

There are men out there who are watching women, waiting to pounce on them. You say, “Oh, I can handle these men. I can take care of myself. I can go it alone.” Many young ladies have left home thinking they can handle these men, and the other problems of life that beset young women, but they found out the hard way that they couldn’t. They have come back home crying to Mama. Some are out there still crying, too proud to admit they have messed up. So my advice to you, dear sister, is, stay home until you get married.

Despite what the world might tell you, eighteen years of age is not full maturity. At eighteen, you are just beginning to knock on the door of full maturity.
