1 Corinthians 7:32-35
1Co 7:32 But I want you to be free from unnecessary worry. One who is unmarried worries about the things of the Lord, how he may accommodate the Lord;
1Co 7:33 but one who is married worries about the things of the world, how he may accommodate his wife,
1Co 7:34 and he is distracted. And the woman who is unmarried, and the virgin, worries about the things of the Lord, so that she may be holy both in body and spirit; but one who is married worries about the things of the world, how she may accommodate her husband.
1Co 7:35 And I am saying this for your own benefit; not to put a noose around your neck, but to help you make right choices, and to assure undistracted devotion to the Lord.
Human minds are extraordinary things. We can actually choose the things that we think about. We can choose our focus. That is what Paul is getting at here. In Corinth, some of the church members were getting far too carried away with the things of the world, even worrying about who they might marry, or how they might take care of their fiancés. Paul had taught them that it was best not to concentrate their worry engines on such things. For those so gifted, they can be devoted to the Lord without distraction.
LORD, train us to focus our worry engines on you and your kingdom.
