The gifts of singleness

flower-heart-gift-food-happy-birthday-textile-1050892-pxhere.comWe all need to hear these truths sometimes:

  • You don’t have to be perfect to be loved.
  • Marriage isn’t a reward, and singleness isn’t failure. They are both unearned good gifts.
  • You don’t have to be ashamed or scared of sexual desire – sex is a good gift too.
  • You’re not needy for needing relationship.
  • The world needs your contribution. Seek first the Kingdom.
