Being Devoted to the Lord

1 Corinthians 7:32-35 ESV / 328 help !l votes
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.
