Is he a woodsman? A hipster? A nerd? Good for him.
Is he a businessman? A blue-collar worker? A DJ? As long as he's a hard worker.
Has he been to Yale? To Moody? To a tech school? The question is, does he pursue knowledge and wisdom?
Is he clean-cut? Does he have tattoos? Does he wear skinny jeans... or carpenters? As long as he's reconciled his appearance with the Lord.
Does he listen to hymns? To jazz? To heavy metal? I'm cool with that if he's able to worship God through them.
Don't get me wrong, I don't expect perfection. No one is perfect. If I were to come across a perfect man, he wouldn't want me, because I'm not perfect! But the man who loves God and strives to model after him, it will motivate him to love others before himself. But that means I, yes me, should be striving for the same thing. I must love God before I love any man; love God more than I love anyone. And not try to "work the system" by taking things into my own hands.
So, girls, let me give you that list, again:
- Love God with all of your heart, soul, mind, and strength
- Love others as yourself
- Do Justice
- Love Kindness
- Walk Humbly with God
