I Corinthians 7:7-9;
"For I would that all men were even as I myself. But every man
hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner, and another after
that. I say therefore to the unmarried and widows, It is good for them
if they abide even as I. But if they cannot contain, let them marry:
for it is better to marry than to burn." Now I want us to move to the

possessed not; And they that use this world, as not abusing it: for
the fashion of this world passeth away. But I would have you without
carefulness. He that is unmarried careth for the things that belong
to the Lord, how he may please the Lord: But he that is married careth
for the things that are of the world, how he may please his wife.' Now
verse thirty nine, "The wife is bound by the law as long as her husband
liveth; but if her husband be dead, she is at liberty to be married
to whom she will; only in the Lord. "
