What should you look for in a guy? (part 2)

by Jeremy Walden

Do you wish you had the power that God does to see past a manís looks (or a picture and bio) and into his heart? You may not have all-knowing power, but you can get a good glimpse into a manís heart. You can tell a manís heart and character by noticing three things: his relational qualities, his moral actions, and his spiritual convictions. Notice how these are described in the verses below:

1 Peter 3:7-9

7 Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect as the weaker partner and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder your prayers. 8 Finally, all of you, live in harmony with one another; be sympathetic, love as brothers, be compassionate and humble. 9 Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult, but with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing.

1 Timothy 3:8-9
8 Deacons, likewise, are to be men worthy of respect, sincere, not indulging in much wine, and not pursuing dishonest gain. 9 They must keep hold of the deep truths of the faith with a clear conscience.

Here are a few questions that can help you look for the right kind of guy:

Relational Qualities
Is he considerate and respectful?
Is he sympathetic and compassionate?
Is he humble?

Moral Actions
How does he respond when someone hurts him?
Does he drink too much?
Does he make his money honestly?

Spiritual Convictions
How is his prayer life?
Does he believe in the basics of the Christianity?
Does his faith influence his whole life?

Donít sit and wait for a perfect man. There isnít one. But, there are men who live imperfectly for God everyday. Set your standards high, but be realistic too.
