Reason #14 to be single

To you know who — this (beautifully sung) Carpenters song probably reflects how you feel now:


Though on the flip side, being single isn’t sad at all because God has a special role for you whether you are married or single! You see, Paul writes in 1 Corinthians that single people have the opportunity to live with a God-centered focus that married people can not attain (woot!):

“I would like you to be free from concern. An unmarried man is concerned about the Lord’s affairsâEUR”how he can please the Lord. But a married man is concerned about the affairs of this worldâEUR”how he can please his wifeâEUR” and his interests are divided.”

1 Corinthians 7:32-34

So, without distraction, you can place your life focus on what is more important — God!
