Celibacy is one of God s greatest gifts to the world . . . and also one of the most misunderstood. . . .
It’s truly a marriage between you and Christ. It’s another way of saying ,”I’m willing to put God above a partner permanently to grow spiritually closer to Him”.
There are some though, that feel marriage is the first step for a man in becoming the man that God wants him to be, leaving behind selfish ways and fulfilling his masculine calling through a relationship with a wife.
Do you feel this mindset shames men into marrying?
1 Corinthians 7:33-34
But the married man is anxious about worldly things, how to please his wife, and his interests are divided. And the unmarried or betrothed woman is anxious about the things of the Lord, how to be holy in body and spirit. But the married woman is anxious about worldly things, how to please her husband. I say this for your own benefit, not to lay any restraint upon you, but to promote good order and to secure your undivided devotion to the Lord.
