What is a Godly Man?

:

What Women Want in a Godly Man
5 traits that reveal true marriage material.

I am passing the link on as I believe it is a very important message.  Please visit the magazine site. It also promises to do an article on “What Men Want in a Godly Woman” tomorrow.

The lady that shared the article on Facebook  pointed out she would like to find a man who loves her more than his Xbox.   It would be a funny statement,  if it was not so pathetically true.

This is how I responded to her.

“In this day and age men who value their Xbox less than the woman in their life are not easily found, but don’t give up; they still exist!  And may I add a man with class and a bit of chivalry is a must!”

Personally this is something else I would add to Ms. Fileta’s list.

Nothing makes me lose the respect of a man (or woman) more than one who uses foul language or talks or jokes about crass things.  As Matthew 15:18 puts it.  “But the things that come out of the mouth come from the heart, and it is those things that make a person unclean.”

The words from his mouth tells a lot about his heart.

  1. I can’t tell you how absolutely thankful I am that both of my daughters married godly men. For them, it took a lot of waiting on the Lord because so many young men out there in the world are anything but godly. The greatest thing a mother of a son can do for the success of his future marriage is raise him to be such a man.

  2. Marriage takes an awful lot of giving and compromising. I was telling someone that one day and she said, “I probably will never get married then because I don’t like to compromise.” 🙂

  3. It is a sad situation today with less people putting emphasis on love and honor. It is almost like we are meant to accept that type of behavior. I don’t know when this all became acceptable but in the end I would also like to find a husband/mate who is not completely selfish. It should be all about the other person and not ourselves–giving rather than taking. Excellent post 🙂 .
