Contentment is a rare virtue. Some people are unhappy because they are not married and seek a change. Other people who are married are unhappy with their spouse and seek a change. Today’s devotional, another joke, points to the fact that our happiness has to be in God. God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
I Corinthians 7:24-28 (ESV)
24 So, brothers, in whatever condition each was called, there let him remain with God. 25 Now concerning the betrothed, I have no command from the Lord, but I give my judgment as one who by the Lord’s mercy is trustworthy. 26 I think that in view of the present distress it is good for a person to remain as he is. 27 Are you bound to a wife? Do not seek to be free. Are you free from a wife? Do not seek a wife. 28 But if you do marry, you have not sinned, and if a betrothed woman marries, she has not sinned. Yet those who marry will have worldly troubles, and I would spare you that.
