Mark 1:21-28 and 1 Corinthians 7:32-35
21 And they entered into Capernaum. And entering into the synagogue promptly on the Sabbaths, he taught them.
22 And they were astonished over his doctrine. For he was teaching them as one who has authority, and not like the scribes.
23 And in their synagogue, there was a man with an unclean spirit; and he cried out,
24 saying: "What are we to you, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are: the Holy One of God."
25 And Jesus admonished him, saying, "Be silent, and depart from the man."
26 And the unclean spirit, convulsing him and crying out with a loud voice, departed from him.
27 And they were all so amazed that they inquired among themselves, saying: "What is this? And what is this new doctrine? For with authority he commands even the unclean spirits, and they obey him."
28 And his fame went out quickly, throughout the entire region of Galilee.
1 Corinthians 7:32-35
32 But I would prefer you to be without worry. Whoever is without a wife is worried about the things of the Lord, as to how he may please God.
33 But whoever is with a wife is worried about the things of the world, as to how he may please his wife. And so, he is divided.
34 And the unmarried woman and the virgin think about the things that are of the Lord, so that she may be holy in body and in spirit. But she who is married thinks about the things that are of the world, as to how she may please her husband.
35 Furthermore, I am saying this for your own benefit, not in order to cast a snare over you, but toward whatever is honest and whatever may provide you with the ability to be without hindrance, so as to worship the Lord.
