FOCUSED ON GOD After a strong teaching about staying married and not getting divorced, Jesus’ apprentices suggested maybe it is better to not get married. Jesus responded mentioning people who are unable to have marriage relations, concluding with “SOME MEN HAVE GIVEN UP MARRIAGE BECAUSE OF THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN” [Mt 19:12 NC]. Then suggesting it is a personal choice. Although God may guide a person to stay unmarried to focus on serving Him, Jesus does not suggest that is the only way we can be focused on serving God.
