I suppose therefore that this is good because of the present distress—that it is good for a man to remain as he is:1 Corinthians 7:26

A portion of the words in today’s verse are probably either a direct quote from the letter he had received (verse 7:1), or are the same basic substance of what was asked.… Read the rest
