The Bible doesn’t speak of a gift of singleness, but of a gift of celibacy. And being single doesn’t mean you have the gift of celibacy any more than being in Latin class means you have the gift of tongues.
There is no gift of singleness except in the same sense that there’s a gift of poverty or a gift of illness. The difference is this: If you are ill, you will get prayed for, usually by name, every Sunday in church, and the request will be for healing. If you are poor, you will get prayed for, usually in a general way, every Sunday in church, and the request will be for financial provision. If you are single, you might get prayed for once in a blue moon in church, always in a general way, and the request will be for you to put up and shut up…oh, I mean, for you to be pure and content.
Please think better and do better than this.
Sincerely in Christ,
Your unmarried brothers and sisters
