The Gift: Singleness and Marriage Oftentimes, it feels like marriage is an expectation society has for each of us—as if marriage will make our lives complete. What happens when marriage doesn’t come quickly for us? When we are still single in our 30s and 40s? When everyone is getting married except for us? We become discouraged when we have to keep checking the box “single” under marital status. But the Bible tells us to not focus on our marital status but to focus on God and what He has called us to do. Join us this week as we learn how to embrace and use the gift of singleness to focus on an important mission.
