Married or Single

Christians in Corinth were surrounded by sexual temptation so marriage was advised if a person could not control themselves (v. 9). Paul explains in 1 Corinthians 7:1-24 that he was single and considered it a gift but conceded that each person has their own gift from God.

This passage explains that both husband and wife have a responsibility to meet the needs of each other. At the same time, married couples do not necessarily lack self-control and sex should not be the main aspect of marriage.

Always remember that either single or married, God thinks you are AWESOME! You can use the skills you have, be happy with who you are, and let Him work out the rest.

This day with You Lord, we are thankful for the knowledge given through Your Word. We realize that life will throw us some curve balls but You’ve provided us with a way to make adjustments along the journey called life. We need help and we ask for good people to be around us so we can live in peace, contentment, and always use our gifts for Your glory. Amen.


About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
