Where Are You Going?

I want you to be free from anxieties. The unmarried man is anxious about the affairs of the Lord, how to please the Lord; but the married man is anxious about the affairs of the world, how to please his wife, and his interests are divided. And the unmarried woman and the virgin are anxious about the affairs of the Lord, so that they may be holy in body and spirit; but the married woman is anxious about the affairs of the world, how to please her husband. I say this for your own benefit, not to put any restraint upon you, but to promote good order and unhindered devotion to the Lord...

...A wife is bound as long as her husband lives. But if the husband dies, she is free to marry anyone she wishes, only in the Lord. But in my judgment she is more blessed if she remains as she is. And I think that I too have the Spirit of God.

~1 Corinthians 7:32-35, 39-40

It's always this question: is someone going in or coming out? And is that a good or bad thing? Does it depend on the perspective of who is watching or who is doing? Who opened the door, and why?

Dear Paul, why did you write this, and for whom? How on earth am I to understand this?
