Translated by G.

 

Too many singles think their happiness  depend on  being married. Unconsciously, they believe that happiness comes from someone or something or married status. But it is a big lie.
Someone  said it some time ago: "I'm getting married to be happy. "

But it’s well known that marriage  is not the source of happiness. So, once in marriage they start to think at one point: "I found someone else outside marriage that makes me happy. I'll divorce and marry her because with this person, I will be happier. "But then again it is a seduction, a big lie that will lead certainly to disappointment.
The Bible nowhere says that we must be married to be happy.
The secret of happiness is in being in Jesus Christ and walking according to God's principles. True happiness lies in the fact we live in accordance with God's plan for our lives.
“Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, does not end in the way of sinners, nor sits in the company of mockers, But his delight is in the law of the Lord and he meditate day and night! He is like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. (Psalm 1: 1-3)â€
To look for happiness and inner satisfaction elsewhere than in God is called idolatry.
Do not make an idol of marriage. Being married is not a necessary condition for happiness. However, anyone who has satisfied his/her heart in God and his/her delight  is in Him is a candidate to live a happy marriage.
Be blessed!

Note of the translator:  A lot of people are married and unhappy in their marriage… marriage is really hard work. Of course marriage is a blessing and a gift but it’s important to realise that hapiness doesn’t come from marriage.

But if you marry, you have not sinned; and if a virgin marries, she has not sinned. Yet such will have trouble in this life, and I am trying to spare you ( 1 corinthians 7 verse 28)

32 I would like you to be free from concern. An unmarried man is concerned about the Lord’s affairs—how he can please the Lord. 33 But a married man is concerned about the affairs of this world—how he can please his wife— 34 and his interests are divided. An unmarried woman or virgin is concerned about the Lord’s affairs: Her aim is to be devoted to the Lord in both body and spirit. But a married woman is concerned about the affairs of this world—how she can please her husband. 35 I am saying this for your own good, not to restrict you, but that you may live in a right way in undivided devotion to the Lord. ( 1 corinthians 7 verse 32-35)
