This series is applicable to both singles and married couples. You are on God’s mind. God is looking out for single parents, widows and widowers as well. For instance, Ruth the Moabite, who later got married to Boaz and got into the lineage of Jesus Christ.

God has a plan for divorcees, for instance, the Samaritan woman Jesus met at the well. Despite her marital situation, Jesus created time for her and turned her into an Evangelist.

Principles do not change. We simply need to align ourselves with them. Wherever you are (martially), God has something for you in this series.

A lady who required marital counselling once came to see Pastor Godman. The lady narrated how her husband suddenly disappeared a day before their 10th wedding anniversary. The lady couldn’t even reach her husband to wish him a ‘Happy Anniversary’, as he remained incommunicado. Her husband later returned two days after the anniversary date. After listening to the lady’s ordeal, Pastor Godman (still single then) started having second thoughts about getting married.

However, someone’s experience in marriage, should not form the basis of our own expectation. The basis of our expectation should be what God has said concerning marriage.

Today’s big question to both singles and married people is: what is God’s standard for marriage?

The 7 commandments of foolishness teaching series is borne out of a desire to push people more towards wisdom principle, with the thinking that if we are aware and turn our hearts against foolishness, perhaps we can move in the direction of wisdom.

This brings us to the question, What does it take to be foolish? Proverbs 9:1-12 emphasizes the importance of wisdom in our daily living, telling us about wisdom’s invitation to everyone to eat of her food, drink of her wine, and receive life in the process.

“11Wisdom will multiply your days and add years to your life. 12If you will become wise, you will be the one to benefit. If you scorn wisdom, you will be the one to suffer.”

Let us look at some perspectives of wisdom, thereafter we will go onto discussing the first commandment of foolishness.

Proverbs chapter 4 and verse 7 says that getting wisdom is the most important thing. There is a premium placed on wisdom throughout the bible and its importance in our lives cannot be over-emphasized, considering that there is the foolish and the wise way of doing everything; there is the foolish way of handling a marriage and there is the wise way of handling it; there is the foolish way of working on an official task and there is the wise way; there is the foolish way of approaching your academics and there is the wise way… The list is endless
