In a recent mass email blast, minister and filmmaker DeVon Franklin listed five issues he believes single people should consider before deciding to get married.
Franklin is responsible for the Box Office hits, “Miracles From Heaven” and “Heaven Is for Real.” In 2015, he and his wife, actress Meagan Good, released a best selling book titled, The Wait: A Powerful Practice for Finding the Love of Your Life and the Life You Love.
In their own relationship, the couple followed the biblical ordinance of intimacy by waiting until they were married to have sex and their book encouraged others to do the same. Since then, the traveling preacher has focused on offering advice to singles to help them enter into marriage with the right expectations.
“Sometimes we’re just not ready for it emotionally,” he wrote first in the email blast titled “Reasons Not To Commit.” “There’s still some work we need to do on ourselves, some personal heavy lifting that demands our focus and sacrifice for a while longer.”
