The aims of Gospel mobility

Radical Christian Discipleship (John Howard Yoder's Challenge to the Church),
John Howard Yoder, Herald Press, 2012, page 40

Most people in this world never get to make a free decision about where to live and what to do for a living. Only persons of considerable education have this extreme degree of liberty. It is this kind of liberty that the shiftlessness, the footlooseness of the gospel would have us take advatange of rather than seeking to settle in and find a place where society will dictate to us the norms of our obedience. Our concern should therefore be for mobility.

Hmmm. I wonder if that is where St Paul was coming from when he advised to remain single in order to maintain maximum availability for the gospel
