We will be in eternity with Jesus so it is less important that we satisfy our needs while on earth.
I bumped in to a single friend at the Waffle Shop today.

And my dear friend and single author Carolyn Mc Culley expresses it well when she writes this about the passage in Sex and The Supremacy of Christ: “It’s not a gift in the way we might think about it on our birthdays or at Christmas: “Do I like it? One word denotes a gift presented as an expression of honor.
A second euphemistically infers that a gift is more a matter of a debt or obligation.
Other such gifts specifically listed in the Scriptures include faith, healing, miracles, prophecy, speaking in tongues, having words of wisdom or knowledge, being a prophet, pastor, apostle, teacher or evangelist.
In the next few weeks I’m going to blog about how you can practically meet what I believe are the five deep longings in your heart, but the fact is it will be like giving a brand new baby a steak to chew on unless you first latch on to a determination to be Spirit-fueled.
You’ll have no spiritual power to chew on what I pass your way if you aren’t full of God.
