If You Are Single

If you are single…

Take comfort in the fact that two prominent Bible figures were single men: Jesus and Paul. Now take a deep breath and let that fact sink a little deeper.

Why is this simple fact so remarkable? Because for the first time in world history and in literature, being single became a legitimate way of life. Before these two men appeared on the scene, going to war, getting many wives and begetting many children were the ultimate symbols of manhood.

Then Jesus came. And then Paul. And these two men showed all the single people of all generations all over the world that there is no shame in being single. It’s not a sprint, folks. We will eventually get there. Just lighten up with all the obnoxious teasing. Just because we laugh doesn’t mean we enjoy it.
