He who is unmarried cares for the things of the Lord - how he may please the Lord. But he who is married cares about the things of the world - how he may please his wife. (1 Corinthians 7:32-33)

Saint Paul is absolutely right about marriage potentially being an impediment to an undivided devotion to the Lord. It is a very good case in point, but just one of many. There are other things that can diminish our service to God if we allow them to. Some may be single but "married to" their career, education, social following, hobby or vice to the point that their Christian life is relegated to the bottom of their priority list.

"Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness." Some may say that is a shopworn platitude but its utility is inexhaustible and its truthfulness unalterable. We can engage in wholesome human affairs as long as the Lord occupies first place in our hearts. Then those other things will be added to us and have fuller meaning.
