Now don’t be worried or angry with yourselves because you sold me here. God sent me here ahead of you to save people’s lives.”

1 Corinthians 07:32-35

I want you to be free from anxieties. The unmarried man is anxious about the things of the Lord, how to please the Lord. But the married man is anxious about worldly things, how to please his wife, and his interests are divided. And the unmarried or betrothed woman is anxious about the things of the Lord, how to be holy in body and spirit. But the married woman is anxious about worldly things, how to please her husband. I say this for your own benefit, not to lay any restraint upon you, but to promote good order and to secure your undivided devotion to the Lord.

1 Corinthians 7:32-35 (ESV)

Seek wisdom regarding your earthly responsibilities, be careful not to worry or be overly consumed with things of the world. Fewer interests in the world will allow you to place more of your attention on pleasing and worshiping God.
