Just beside them was a bulky looking man on a weighing scale trying to check his weight. The young lad in his curiosity, peeped to see what the man weighed.
To the boy's amazement, the man weighed way below expectation, judging from his bulky look! Asking his mum what she thought about his observation, the woman responded; weight is not determined by the outward appearance, but by the bones and other inner contents.
A while ago, I overheard young unmarried girls discuss among themselves, they say "let the guy be rich first, every other thing that follows, we'll manage!"
In the 21st century, our maidens tend to picture a real man to be one broad shouldered, tall, 'athletic looking', dark skin, rich oil boy. but they sure need to chang their perspective. Because truth be told, the Uniqueness of a Man is hidden in his values and not in his outward appearance. The quality of a man's decision and his disciplinary level all lie underneath his value system.
The truth is, the development of every man is shaped by his childhood experiences. MANHOOD IS ROOTED IN CHILDHOOD!
While courting him, don't get too carried away by his financial abundance that you focus on eating Chinese and forget to discuss your values. Baby girl, trust me, MONEY CAN NOT FIX EVERYTHING! Money can buy you material possessions, but not peace of mind!
Don't get me wrong, looking good is good business any day any time, and money is also very important! But that can't be all there is to a man!
Do you know his habits? Are theystuff you can cope with? How does he manage money? Is he miserly or extravagant? Any one of both isn't fine! Does he have self control over women? These traits are oftentimes not seen in the outward appearance, they are hidden in the inner man. There are too many "Little children living in big bodies!"
Jesus, the most powerful man that ever lived was the Lion and the Lamb! His lamb nature was used to strengthen and encourage the weak, while His Lion nature was used to put the enemy and his cohorts on the run! A real man is a protector and not a destroyer. Jesus' strength was not revealed on weak people.
Ladies, any man that desires too much authority over you that his authority deprives you of being you, that's too much power for any man to get!
There is a difference between Loyalty and Slavery!
