If there is only one truth about being single that I wish everyone could grasp, it is this:
Your worth is not measured by your marital status.
We live in a couple’s world. From the time we are little until the time we die, we are flooded with the message that if you are not one half of a couple then you are worth less or incomplete.
When singles are portrayed in television shows, they are portrayed as adult “children” who are spoiled and expect mom to wait on them hand and foot or they are portrayed as the perpetual partier.
Very rarely are singles portrayed as responsible, dependable, and worthwhile. All of that is supposed come only after marriage.
Because of this message many people think that they have to put their dreams on hold and that they aren’t worth anything unless they are part of a relationship.
But get this: You are not your marital status.
That “status” is just a part of who you are, and it is a status that can change.
Jesus didn’t say that He came so that only the married people may have life and have it more abundantly.
He came so that everyone can have an abundant life.
He didn’t come just to save the married people. He came to save everyone.
It doesn’t matter what your marital status is. That is not where your worth is found.
So don’t live like it is. Pursue your dreams. Buy that house. Travel. Live your life. Love your life.
Now it’s your turn…
