There Is Something Worse Than Being Single

We had a great time at North Greenville this past week.  The students were such a blessing to the whole Agnew clan and the boys already miss all of our friends!

Coming home Wednesday after 4 chapels and many side conversations, I thought of a few things I wish I would have said.  Dealing with issues of dating and marriage, I talked with the students concerning how to find that person and what you do once you found them.

Many students would comment that they just can’t find someone to even start the possible partnership with.  That reminded me of something I forgot to share with the students and might be a good reminder to you today.

There is something worse than being single.

You could be married to someone who doesn’t love Jesus.

That is a much worse situation.  Too often people settle for less than God’s best in an attempt to elevate past their single status.  They attach themselves to a spouse “that’ll do.”  They get married praying for the day they will fully surrender to Jesus.  More often that not, it never happens.

If you are single, I am sure loneliness can rob you of much joy, but don’t let it cause more pain by making a bad decision.

 I want you to be free from anxieties. The unmarried man is anxious about the things of the Lord, how to please the Lord. -1 Cor. 7:32
