In the Church, Unmarried Doesn’t Mean Alone

While singleness can be a gift that allows you to be more devoted to God’s kingdom, I’ll often hear people say, “All you really need is God anyway.” That sounds really nice and spiritual, and I’ve probably said it before without thought.

The problem is, God never says that. He said, “It’s not good that man should be alone.” He didn’t look at Adam in the Garden and say, “You’ve got me. Be content! That’s enough.” He created us—all of us—with the need for companionship.
