King Jehoshaphat is a young man who loved and served the Lord. He was a spiritual leader. Then came marriage! He married a woman who did not know God. His marriage ruined his life, and the lives of many other people also.
2 Chronicles 17:3 Single and Serving God
The LORD was with Jehoshaphat because he followed the example of his father David's earlier days and did not seek the Baals…
2 Chronicles 18:1 Marriage and Life's Goals Lost
Now Jehoshaphat had great riches and honor; and he allied himself by marriage with Ahab.
Jehoshaphat's father-in-law Ahab was an evil man with an evil wife and an evil daughter, Athaliah. Maybe she was cute. I don't know. I know the family wanted them to get married.
Does God have His hand on you to be a leader? If you want to succeed, close your eyes to any girl who does not now love the Lord and now work for the Lord! Be friends with girls who are working for God now. Chose the person you marry. Do not let a girl choose you. Do not let your family choose the person you marry. Don't play games.
If you are friends with a girl with whom you cannot discuss the Bible, she is not a person to date or marry. If you are friends with a girl with whom you cannot (or do not) pray together, she is not a person to date or marry. If you are friends with a girl with whom you cannot or do not discuss your heart for serving God, she is not a person to date or marry. If you have never asked her how and why she knows she is saved, she is not a girl for you to date or marry. Your first serious conversations with a girl should be about her relationship with God. Her answer should determine the future of the relationship.
If you are single and serious about loving and serving God for the rest of your life, begin building relationships that will help you keep your heart for God into marriage and through old age.
For me to live is Christ.
