You Need A Man???

You Need A Man???

A teenage girl said to me, “I need a man.”
“Need a man?” I responded. “Well, what type of man do you need?”
Her reply was typical, “Tall, dark and handsome! Oh yeah, and no kids.”
I asked, “Are those your only qualifications?”
She said, “Of course not, he needs to have money.”
Flabbergasted, I questioned, “Is that all?”
Her reply was just as shocking. “No, he has to have his own money, a car and dress nice.”
Reaching my limit of tolerance to this superficial take on finding love, my response was simple:
“I can tell you what kind of man you need…
One that trusts in God despite hardship
One that will love you more than himself
One that educates you and not berates you
One that won’t use or abuse you
One that you can grow with, not apart from
One that can make you smile when you frown
One that needs you just the same
One that apologizes when he’s to blame
One that comforts you when you’re sad
One that does something romantic just because you are feeling bad
One that motivates you to be a better person
One that uplifts you when things worsen
One that compliments your shortcomings with achievement
One that your Father would call Son in agreement
One that would sacrifice his happiness for yours
One that provides til sweat bleeds from his pores
One that encourages you when you fail
One that each kiss feels like a fairy tale.”
Remember, the way one looks today can easily change tomorrow.
