Singleness is not some lesser condition of life to be pitied, and shame on me if I ever write about it as if it were.
The Apostle Paul lifted high the single life — a life he himself embraced. Though he didn't diminish the blessing of marriage, he also didn't mince words when he said that to be unmarried was even better (1 Corinthians 7:28). Singleness shouldn't be frowned upon or escaped; it is a marvelous gift to be utilized for the Kingdom of God.
Yet as we all know, many unmarried believers struggle to feel as optimistic as Paul did about their state. Sure, in some cases this "unbelief" about the goodness of singleness stems from sins of ingratitude or envy. There are those who idolize the prospect of marriage and allow bitterness to stir in their heart toward God for not giving it to them — and maybe even jealousy toward their fellow Christians who are married. However, there are a great number of us who don't wallow in self-pity over this call (whether temporary or long term) on our lives. Though the single life isn't without its difficulties, we trust that God will comfort and provide for us . . . just as he did for single men like Paul. more >>

Responding to a question regarding a married boss' "uncomfortable" advances in the workplace, Graham says employees must "firmly and clearly" let the employer know that their behavior is neither appropriate nor welcome.
"You should not do anything to encourage him or give him an excuse to break up his marriage. The Bible is clear: 'If sinful men entice you, do not give in to them. ... Do not set foot on their paths,' Proverbs 1:10, 15," Graham says. more >>
Commemorating the life and love he and his late wife shared while she was alive, gospel singer Marvin Sapp offered his followers practical advice on real love.
"Real love is about finding or being found by the person that will stick with you through the thick storms and the thin victories," he wrote. "Real love doesn't just take sacrifice, it is based on sacrifice. Real love is founded on the notion that sometimes you may have to give part of yourself to someone else in order for them to be able to make it through, with the understanding that this person will do the same thing for you in your toughest times. more >>
