Greetings Bible Enthusiast!

1 Corinthians 7:8-9 says, that if you cannot exercise self-control, you should marry, for it is better to marry than to burn with passion. This is what is urged rather than moving in with someone because you are not sure whether you want to marry them or not. Just having sex outside of marriage is not what the Bible tells you to do.

God Bless You!

--TODAY'S NOT SO TRIVIAL TRIVIA QUESTION:

Q. What does Jesus say we should do next if a brother persists in habitual sin despite being rebuked privately?

Answer below.

------------------------------------------------------------

--DAILY BIBLE VERSE:

But if any man thinks he is behaving improperly toward his virgin, if she is past the flower of youth, and thus it must be, let him do what he wishes. He does not sin; let them marry. Nevertheless he who stands steadfast in his heart, having no necessity, but has power over his own will, and has so determined in his heart that he will keep his virgin, does well. So then he who gives her in marriage does well, but he who does not give her in marriage does better.

1 Corinthians 7:36-38

--TODAY'S BIT OF WISDOM/REFLECTION:

There is no more lovely, friendly, and charming relationship, communion, or company than a good marriage.

-Martin Luther

--FEATURED FUNNY:

An old couple was just settling in to bed one night when the phone rang.

The husband got out of bed and went into the living room to answer the phone. His wife could hear him say, "Hello?" Then he said, "Sure is." Then he hung up the receiver and went back to bed.

A minute later the phone rang again. The husband got out of bed and went into the other room and his wife could hear him say, "Hello?" and then he said, "Sure is." And again he hung up the receiver and went back to bed.

The wife asked who it was.

The man said he didn't know.

The wife then asked, "Well, what did the person say?"

He said, "It's odd, a woman just keeps saying, 'Long distance from Chicago..'"

--ANSWER TO TRIVIA QUESTION:

Q. What does Jesus say we should do next if a brother persists in habitual sin despite being rebuked privately?

A. Rebuke him in the presence of two or three Christian witnesses.

Moreover if your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault between you and him alone. If he hears you, you have gained your brother. But if he will not hear, take with you one or two more, that 'by the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.' And if he refuses to hear them, tell it to the church. But if he refuses even to hear the church, let him be to you like a heathen and a tax collector.

Matthew 18:15-17
