Are You Economically Attractive?
Could finances be holding you back from marriage? Are you economically attractive?
A study in the journal of Marriage and Family suggests that declining marriage rates could be due to a shortage of economically attractive partners.
Evidently, there’s a shortage of marriageable men – those with good incomes and stable jobs.
40% of never-married adults who would like to marry in the future say they haven’t because they’re just not financially stable.
Three-fourths of millennials are in debt. Credit card debt is the highest debt form for young Americans. Young or old, we must start living within our means.
Children of God are made managers of what He gives. God carries the heaviest responsibilities of ownership, control and provision. But, our job is summed up in this verse: It is required in stewards that one be found faithful. (1 Corinthians 4:2)
Thankfully, the Bible gives us sound financial advice. We just need to learn and apply it!
As we discover areas in which we’ve not been faithful, whether through ignorance, disbelief or rebellion, we need to remember that part of being faithful means returning.
Our loving Father longs for our return. He wants us to put Him first in our life: to love Him with all our heart, soul, mind and strength. (Luke 10:27)
So examine your finances then examine your heart. Despite any mistakes you’ve made, God still loves you. But, you need to acknowledge your unfaithfulness and seek restoration.
It’s a major step in becoming economically attractive.
