Well last week we started talking a little bit about the family and I began by talking more directly to the single people and I have a few more words for you again tonight. I hope there have been some engagements during the week since I…I don’t know, but it would be nice if there had been some. Part of the problem in the world in which we live is you have too many choices. It was a lot better when you lived in a village and there were eight girls to choose from, and that was the way it was.
You know, the illusion in our culture for those people who are single is that somewhere there’s this perfect person hanging out there and you just have to find that person. Nothing could be further from the truth. All you really want is a godly partner, all you want is somebody who loves the Lord Jesus Christ. And I’ll give you a little bit of a warning. You can find your ideal mate,you can find the one that looks and talks and acts and behaves the way you think the perfect…the perfect spouse or perspective spouse should. They may look like you would want them to look,and they may be interested in the things you would want them to be interested in. They may have a wonderful sense of humor and be intellectually interesting and all of those kinds of things.And you can marry that person and that person may feel the same way about you. And if you don’t walk in the Spirit, that marriage will have massive problems.
