Do you know that Jesus loves you even more than your mother does?
He tells us “When my father and my mother forsake me, then the Lord will take care of me.” Psalm 27: 10
The Bible also tells us that a mother may toss her suckling child aside but Jesus never will. So no matter how old we are, we have a loving parent in Jesus!
10 COMMANDMENT CORNER:
Jesus says “If you love me keep my commandments” John 14:15. Because I love Jesus I will do as He asks. The 10 commandments will not save me, but they are important because they show me how to love God and people, and what sin is.
Commandment # 5
“Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.” Exodus 20:12
Honoring your parents isn’t just for children. We need to honor them throughout their lives. I remember how precious my mother was to me when she was frail and old. Her advanced age deepened my love for her. If you have elderly parents, do not neglect them. They need you now more than ever!
Sometimes we single people experience the loneliness of being alone and the feeling that our life is a waste because we are unmarried. We long for human companionship and we may not live up to our potential because we are waiting for someone else to give meaning to our lives.
Truly living is making the most of the life you have today. If you are single, it means enjoying your singleness today. There are no guarantees that tomorrow will bring a companion, and the mature person will accept and flourish in the environment they are in today.
Don't waste your life, learn to enjoy being single. Instead of sitting at home alone, get involved in community projects that help people. This will open doors for you to reach your true potential and will give fulfillment. Making others happy will make you happy.
To ease loneliness, find a social group to join and be friendly. Our friendship group is a great place to start. It has people who are adjusting to the single life and enjoying it.
Jesus is single too!

Singles, Jesus must come first in your life! Don't put finding a marriage partner or a high paying job above Jesus. Without Jesus in your marriage your relationship could be like war. Without Jesus as your job coach you risk not having the wisdom to pick the best job. Jesus knows your needs, He knows what you want. Trust Him to supply your needs by talking to Him about your desires and reading the Bible, His Word, to learn about the life Jesus wants you to live.
