1 Corinthians 7:39-40
39 A woman is bound to her husband as long as he lives. But if her husband dies, she is free to marry anyone she wishes, but he must belong to the Lord. 40 In my judgment, she is happier if she stays as she is—and I think that I too have the Spirit of God.
Marriage may be approved by God, but it is a man-made institution. Death makes marriage void and the whole dilemma of single vs. married starts over again.
What kind of things need to die in your life for you to be free to serve God?
O God, may you continue to fill me up with your love. Amen.
