Being Single. Part-Three.

Right Attitude.

The Apostle Paul was very wise in this subject, some people find his letters in the New Testament of the bible difficult to understand or they feel he is being contradictory.

This is not so and far from the truth, what he is saying to us is ‘I would like you to be single, as I am, but if you fall in love do the right thing and get married. But if you choose not to get married that is fine to as long as the other side is not hurt.

Basically don’t be single or get married with a selfish heart, attitude. Do not allow sin to enter your choice.

1 Corinthians 7:32,  35-36,  Psalm 55:22.

Mary. Part-Four.

In Luke 2:48-51 we learn of Jesus being left behind in Jerusalem and his parents returning to seek him. Today when a child goes missing is causes great distress and worry to the parents. They went up to Jerusalem so that Jesus could have his Bar-mitzvah, his time to enter adulthood had come. He was found in the Temple courts talking and discussing the scriptures with the teachers of the law (Torah). These are perhaps the latter secret followers, like Nicodemus (John 3:1-16), Joseph of Arimathea (Matthew 27:57-60) and Gamaliel (Acts 5:33-41) who were present that day.

But Mary had to go through a series of worries before the events of the cross.
