Singleness is a gift. Marriage is a gift. Paul writes that both of these statuses are gifts. Don’t buy into the cultural belief that you need to be married to be happy. Nor should you view marriage as a ball and chain. If you are dissatisfied with the gift God has given you, then ask God to change your view on your status. Whether you recognize it or not, you are blessed with a gift.
But God gives to some the gift of marriage, and to others the gift of singleness.
~ 1 Corinthians 7:7 [NLT]
