Well-meaning People - Naomi Elle

Don't listen to the well-meaning people. Just because you respect them, doesn't mean they're giving you good advice. Often, people speak out of their own experience. They have good intentions, but poor execution. So when they tell you that "you're never going to get married" or "you're too picky" or other such nonsense, ignore them. Don't be held hostage by people's opinions. The only right way to get married is to be pure while you do it. There's nothing wrong with online dating, blind dates, being introduced by friends, saying that you are interested in marriage, going to other churches, visiting new places, being outgoing, reconsidering someone that you wrote off five years ago. Just exercise wisdom and be led by the Spirit. Your future will look dramatically different than everyone else's, and that's the way it's supposed to be.
