As a single lady, I’ve been reflecting on this principle for some time now: Do I honor the marriage relationship, even in my singleness? Does my behavior in any way challenge or provoke people away from their covenant relationship? Do I allow people to talk about their spouse negatively and side with them just to make them comfortable? Does my behavior give a married person an incentive to be tempted? Do I allow any connections to be made that are improper, thereby threatening another’s relationship with their spouse? Why all the questions? I want to be married someday; therefore, I’m in training. I recognize there is importance in what seeds I’m sowing NOW. I must NOW learn to honor the marriage covenant even though I do not have one of my own. Even being in any sort of helping role must come under submission.
