Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. – Matthew 6:33 (NLT)
If you have a desire to be married one day, that’s a good thing. In Genesis, we see that God created marriage and the family, so that desire is a good one. The trouble comes when we want to be married and in a relationship so much that we are unhappy being single, or we settle for a relationship that is less than God’s best for our lives.
In order to not settle for a relationship that is unhealthy, you’ve got to put a bit of thought into it. What do I mean? Well, you’ve got to spend a little time thinking about where you’re going in life.
For example, do you want a family? If so, the person you date should want that too. Do you want to make going to church a priority? If you say yes, then be sure to find a person to date that feels the same way as you do. These are just a few practical things to examine, but there are many more too.
To find a good person to date, you’ve got to know where you’re going in life. As you discover what you want in life, it will help you filter out people that are potentially unhealthy for you to date.
Finally, don’t be afraid to ask God for help. He knows more than anyone whether the person you’re thinking about dating would be a good fit for your life. So go to Him. Ask His wisdom and advice. If He tells you no, then listen to Him and obey. It’s always better to be single than to nurse a broken heart.
