There’s a verse in the Bible that has never been more relevant to me as a 42-year-old unmarried man than John 4:27. If any of you out there are also an adult who didn’t get married in your 20s or 30s, and you have young nieces or nephews, this verse probably applies to you, too.
…and they were amazed he was talking to a woman.John 4:27
Every vacation when I’m with family and I so much as say, “How much is this?” to a woman working at any store anywhere, it’s as if they just saw a unicorn, heard a dog meow, or someone farted and it smells like cotton candy.
Yep, that’s my life as an uncle of young kids. Granted, sometimes I’m amazed when I talk to a woman but that’s neither here nor there. The point is that even taken extremely out of context (this verse is when Jesus talked to a Samaritan woman), there has never been a verse more accurate to how my nieces and nephews think of me and my dating life.
Gosh, just wait till they discover Proverbs 21:9!
