Thanks for reading.  Let’s answer the following question.  Does God have one specific woman for a specific 
man or does God have one specific man for a specific woman?

Apostle Paul addresses this question in 1 Corinthians.

1 Corinthians 7:1-2  It is good for a man not to marry.  But since there is so much immorality, each man should
have his own wife and each woman her own husband.

1 Corinthians 7:8  Now to the unmarried and the widow I say:  It is good for them to stay unmarried as I am.  But
if they cannot control themselves, they should marry, for it is better to marry than to burn with pas-
sion.

1 Corinthians 7:25-28  Now about the virgins:  I have no command from the Lord, but I give you a judgement as
one who by the Lord’s mercy is trustworthy.  Because of the present crisis, I think that it is good for you to remain
as you are.  Are you married?  Do not seek a divorce.  Are you unmarried?  Do not look for a wife.  But 
if you do marry, you have not sinned;  and if the virgin marries, she has not sinned.  But those who 
marry will face many troubles in this life, and I want to spare you this.

So far, Apostle Paul is telling us to stay as we are.  If you are unmarried, stay unmarried.  But if you 
burn with passion, it is better to marry.  The person that marries is not sinning but they will face
many troubles in life.

Next week, we will go deeper into why Paul says it is better not to marry.

Thanks you so much for reading.  God bless.
