Serven says, “If you are currently single, then God has called you right now to be single. You must learn to be content in that and be the best single person you can be, realizing that getting married wontmake me happy.It will change you, but you will have new problems, new things you need to repent of. You should be seeking to develop friendships based on common theology, callings, and interest and pray that God would lead you into a relationship with someone who can be your best friend.

 

Start to Build your Legacy

 

In your 20s, you’ll often feel pressure to impress others in order to get ahead in the world. But, as the authors write, “What institutions think of us isn’t nearly as important as what Jesus thinks of us.” 

 

Dunham says it’s never too early to consider your legacy. “When we’re young, we tend to feel particularly invincible, largely because our culture tries to hide death and deny the fact that it’s coming. As a result, many people in their 20s live life with only a wandering sense of urgency and an occasional haunting fear of what lies beyond. Rethinking accomplishment and success in our 20s is vital to our learning to live strategically. Now – when we can still do something about it – is when we should be thinking about what our lives will mean in our deaths. Death is life’s great perspective-bringer.”

 

Adjusting your goals with your legacy in mind can keep you focused on what matters most, says Serven. “Your short-term goals need to fit into your long-term ones. You are becoming who you will be known for. What will you leave behind? Who will be glad you were here when youre gone?
