Better to Be Married

Bible Reading: 1Corinthians 7:1-40

But if they do not have self-control, they should marry, since it is better to marry than to burn with desire. 1 Corinthians 7:9 CSB

For those who are married, God expects us to walk in love and not to run away from each other at night except you are fasting. Give yourself fully to make your marriage a happy home. If you are a widow or a widower and cannot control your emotions, it is better you get married to whom you like  instead of pushing temptation for yourself and others. If you are married to a non-Christian, you should not think of divorcing him or her but pray that something good will come out of the relationship. But on the other hand if the unbeliever divorce you or both of you separated, it is better both of you to be reconciled.  In some extreme circumstances a brother or sister is not bound in some cases, they may meet the marriage committee for instruction or supervision. But God has called us into peace and reconciliation. This does not negate the true concept of the Bible that is, a wife is bound to her husband as long as he lives and it is death that should separate the marriage.

Prayer Point: Lord, I pray for peace and stability in my marriage in Jesus name
