A Godly husband is worth waiting for. Here are 3 reasons not to settle for someone who doesn’t share your values:
1. Godly men do exist. Sure, you’re limiting the pool of potential suitors if you’ll only go out with a guy who’s sold out for God, but you can only marry one person anyway, so what’s the purpose in making the requirements too loose? Don’t be so impatient that you miss out on someone who shares your faith.
2. Godly men have the ability to understand Christ-like love. You can’t expect a man who isn’t in love with the Lord to understand the kind of love commanded in Ephesians 5:25. That’s one of the most romantic verses in the Bible—the command for a husband to love his wife in the same way that Christ Himself loved His church. The most Godly of men still fall short of the standard set by Christ, but they are able to comprehend the importance of that self-sacrificial love.
3. Godly men have the same goal in life that you do. Not saying that every Godly guy has it all together. I’m not saying that you have it all together. But if you’re seeking the Lord and living in obedience to him, and your man is, too, that’s a really good way to live. In marriage, there should be less tension because you’re able to find a way to walk in the same direction since you’re both in the process of running the race.
