Ten Things Every Single Person Should Do- Part Two


Scripture: 1 Corinthians 7:1-40


So far, we’ve learned three things that a single person ought to do. We will pick up where we left off on the fourth today.

4- Exercise Your Body and Your Mind:

This is not for the benefit of the parents, but rather for longevity, your ability to sleep at night, etc. Read, read, read—anything but Telemundo, Zeeworld, movies, home videos, or cartoons. Read your Bible, listen to the news, and so on. You take these steps to protect yourself from being broken by life.

5- Avoid People Who Seeks to Control and Silence Your Personality:

I’ve noticed that the majority of single people are susceptible to this. It doesn’t matter if they cite the Bible; resist being duped by anything. By manipulating you, they simply rule over your entire life. The bible refers to this as “WITCH-CRAFT.” By that, you have to consume their diet, travel in their footsteps, and so forth.

6- Respect Marriage:

Avoid being overly direct when you are aware of someone’s marriage. Even though you may like the person despite the fact that they are married, proceed with caution. So that you won’t have to experience what you sow when you get married, you must respect marriage while you are still single. Respecting a marriage requires some downtime, there are certain boundaries you must not cross, and you shouldn’t worship a marriage.

Most single worship it by seeking for “Mr. & Mrs. Right” because they don’t exist. What we have is Mr. & Mrs. almost right or close to right and if you have any such, you had better go with that one else.

7- Live and Budget Within Your Means:

Debt may influence your decisions, particularly during wedding planning. Before I got married more than 11 years ago, I found this to be very true. You need to be aware that there is a distinction between getting married and getting married. Many singles become overexcited and preoccupied with planning their weddings, forgetting that they will be getting married after the wedding. After the wedding, my friends, reality sets in.

Most people spend all their life savings during weddings and live in debt in marriage. The truth is that, if you live within your budget and means, you don’t have to make decisions based on your excesses.

8- Set a Guard on Your Heart:

 Proverbs 4:23 says we should guard our heart with all diligence because from out of it flows the issues of life. This scripture implies that whatever we allow to enter our hearts, if not examined and evaluated properly, will undoubtedly be expressed in our lives and our actions – in positive or negative ways.

God’s peace will keep your heart on high alert. Stop letting every compliment cause your heart to race. You swoon over everyone’s smiles and open your heart to them. I’ve heard single people say things like, “This brother or sister loves me because he or she smiled with me.” You approach a brother who is pleading with you not to hurt him, saying, “Please don’t hurt me; I have a weak heart.” I’ll give you their responses now. I intend to harm you.

The church always teaches people to guard their body, but they don’t teach them how to guard their heart- Proverbs 4:23.

9- Manage Your Sexual Appetite:

A behavior that is investigated is sexual appetite. Although our appetites for food are different, we still have them. Some people find it extremely difficult to adhere to this rule because they cannot go an entire day without eating. Some people become ravenous for food (sex) the moment they smell it and must have it no matter what.

How many of you who are reading this know what you like to eat? Your ability to control your appetite will keep you out of trouble. It takes time and effort to manage. Each person has a unique set of allergies, and they must take all necessary precautions to manage them.

10- Try Not to Make Decision that Complicates your Life:

The fact that some people have “AIDS” certainly makes their lives more difficult. Now that I’m talking about falling in love in a relationship, I beg you to leave anything that is making you unhappy. Stop putting yourself in stressful situations and work to overcome your addiction. Jesus is at your service. JUST SPEAK TO HIOM WHEREVER YOU ARE RIGHT NOW!

We now know 10 things singles ought to do before getting married. This subject has undoubtedly been very helpful and interesting. If yes! Visit, share, and like our blog, then invite your friends and family to join us via our Facebook group and page and other social media platforms.
