Meditation: 1 Corinthians – This is not the first time that Paul pleads for people to not get married. He seems specifically concerned that marriage is a thing of this world and could prevent the participants from remaining wholly focused on the Lord. I don’t know about Paul, but I know people whose marriages have drawn them closer to God, and their relationship with God has strengthened their marriage.
