What to look for in a Mate!!



As young ladies we go through the idea of the perfect man to marry. As Christians it states in 2 Cor.6:14"Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?" We are to marry other Christians. I got the following tips from Sarah Mally's book Before you meet Prince Charming on what to look for in a godly mate:)

*Does he have assurance of eternal life?
*Does he faithfully share the gospel with others?
*Is he always truthful?
*Is he committed to never being divorced?
*Does he honor his parents?
*Has he applied diligence in spiritual disciplines such as bible reading,prayer and giving?
*Does he make all decisions based upon the word of God?
*Would you be excited to have him as the father of your children?
*Is he diligent in his work and wise in his use of money?
*Is God calling you in the same direction in the ministry?
*Does he ask forgiveness when he is wrong?
*Is he humble and willing to be a servant?
*Is he kind,thoughtful and gracious?
*Is he generous with others?
*Does he respond to criticism in a Christlike way?
*Is he willing to stand alone?
*Do you see spiritual fruit in his life?
