The Number One Question You Should Ask Yourself About the Guy You Really Like

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Is he respectful?  Is he considerate?  Is he romantic and wooing?  Does he give you space when you need it?

Sure, these are all great points and questions that you should be able to answer “yes” to, but what is more important than all of those?

As a follower of Christ, my utmost goal in life is to live according to His Word and to glorify God with all I do, say and think.  This does not mean I always achieve that goal.  It’s a day to day process of giving up myself, and giving it all over to Him.  This includes anything related to boyfriends, dating, potential-future-husband-material, etc.

We all desire a man who will treat us the way we deserve to be treated.  A man who treats us the best.
Who is the only One who has already done this?
So He should be your highest standard.

Am I the one saying this?  Not exactly.

There are many passages in Scripture in which God says for us to be holy as He is holy (Leviticus 11:44, Leviticus 20:7, 1 Peter 1:16).  And if you are called to be holy, and you desire to marry a man who loves the LORD as you do, then the holiness standard should be something you expect from the man you really like.

So what if he’s a neat Christian guy?  Don’t marry him.  Avoid him like the plague, as Matt Chandler says.  What you’re looking for is a man who is directionally headed towards godliness.  He’s gonna have weaknesses, and flaws, and he’s gonna fail.  A ton.  Because he’s human.  As are you.  But if he has a desire to grow into a more Christ-like follower, then that is the kind of man you want.  You’re not looking for a perfect man.  You’re looking for a man who knows his weaknesses, knows he needs the LORD, and is truly striving to follow Him and be like Him.
And what better man than that to commit to marry and spend the rest of your life with, striving for more of Christ together?

What is the number one question you should ask yourself about the guy you really like?  It’s this:

Does he love the LORD our God with all his heart, soul, mind and strength – and is he endeavoring to live his life for His glory alone in all that he does, says and thinks?

Without that mindset, ladies, a relationship with him won’t last long.  Why?  Because without God at the center, anything and everything will fail.  And if you can’t say “yes” to that question about the guy you really like, then say goodbye to him and move on.  If you’re looking for a man who will treat you the best, he won’t be it.

      An interesting perspective. Though trying to relate to that perspective, it seems as if hormonal impulse (as vague as that is) suggests that most men (myself included at times) and women have their priorities on the somewhat broken side.

      As you probably know, you wouldn’t necessarily appreciate what most men would say relative to the context of your title’s suggestion regarding consideration.

      The questioning, as stupid as it may seem would be something stupid like “Do I prefer tits or ass?”. Of course, the inherent exclusion of the more obvious factor is a cunning stunt, if you know what I mean.
