The Right Man - How to Recognize Him [10 point series]

This was shared with me. There are 10 points to this..I'll will take them a little at a time...Here's hoping you can follow this through and learn from it. Would also love any input. do you recognize the right man?

A more important question is - How do you catch the RIGHT one?
Simple: You take only the bus that's headed in the RIGHT DIRECTION

First, we must allow our Heavenly Father to do the picking.

Second, the decision for a mate must be made on a spiritual and intellectual basis before it is made on an emotional one.

"What about love? Shouldnt that be the third?", you ask.

No, and I'll tell you why.

"The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it?" Jeremiah 17:9
The heart is willful and is driven by its own agenda. It does not consider things rationally and intelligently - it just loves to love! Therefore you have to point it in the right directions: "Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life" Proverbs 4:23

Whenever you meet a man, you need to get clearance from God, check out his attributes, and then allow your heart to engage. Dating exists not for mating; it exists for collecting data. I believe that the biblical design would be friendship, courtship and then marriage

Friendship is two people working together in agreement and accountability, learning and growing together

Courtship follows the mutual agreement to commit to one another exclusively -- it is the decisive turning toward the agreed upon goal of the marriage altar. It is a period of laying a foundation and preparing your life together after marriage

But dating? Well , if you do date, use the time wisely to gather facts
