Often singleness, both in our culture and in the church, is portrayed as a sub-par life. Christianity was the first religion to uphold singleness as not only a viable way of life but an honourable one as well, and it didn’t do this at the expense of marriage. How? God is good. Whatever your circumstance in life you can be sure of that eternal and wonderful truth – God is good. He is always working for the good of those that trust in Jesus. This may be, and frequently is, hard to see in the moment. But living a life of faith in Jesus means that you trust that God knows what is best for you. Idolise marriage – whether single or married – and you will be discontent. Only Jesus truly satisfies. Find contentment is Jesus.
