In 1 Corinthians 7, Paul again makes clear that we should order our lives so that "we may live in a right way in undivided devotion to the Lord". (1 Corinthians 7:35)
Things of this earth, position, money or even marital status are not to divide our devotion. Paul pursued Christ single-mindedly. He believed the "world in its present form was passing away" (31), so he lived for the world to come.
I do poorly in comparison. I had a very frustrating day yesterday, exacerbated by lack of sleep. But, sadly, all of my frustrations were related to the world in its present form which is passing away.
Time to repent.
