I wrote this short humorous story , out of a few concerns that haunt me time to time. Here are a few of them: Society view people who aren’t in a romantic relation as having a character flail. Society also views unmarried people, and people who don’t have children as being irresponsible and immature.
I would not be surprised to see this kind of social judgemental behavior in none christian circles, but I see this going on in the church as well. We have to remember that mirage is a gift from God, and God does not give every one the same gifts. Some people God has given the gift of being single, so they can focus on ministering to God with a single focused heart.
We should judge a person on the merit of their conduct, not on the social station they have in life.
I myself have felt tried of this situation, and have been tempted to brag
about my exploits of my fictitious family, just so people would treat me with more respect.
