Accountability and the Christian Single - Word Document [Download]Christianity Today InternationalChristianity Today / 2009 / Word Document$4.95
Contentment isn t just something that singles seek to obtain. Everybody wants to be content. Christian singles stray off course when we accept the false belief that a spouse will somehow make us complete. Neil Clark Warren says that contentment isn t connected to finding a soul mate, but rather, to tending to our soul.
Can we really find contentment without a spouse? What happens if God calls us to remain single for life can we find contentment in such a calling? What does true contentment look like for the Christian single? Does God really want his children to be content in every circumstance?
