In this day and age there are many women that are willing to accept whatever a man is handing out and so often times what the man is handing out is nothing much.
So how can a single Christian woman know what to look for in a man?
The key is the Bible. Even though the Bible is old it is never outdated and there are so many lessons to be learned from the Bible including what to look for in a man.
Let’s take a look at these 3 Biblical Couples. I’m sure we can all learn a thing or two from them.
Boaz and Ruth
Boaz saw Ruth in the field working hard, and that is what attracted him to her. Even though he was attracted to her, he did not expect anything from her. Instead he helped her out.
He gave her food to take home because he knew she was poor.
He invited her into his home to rest because he knew she had worked hard all day and was hungry.
He had his workers look after her in the field because he wanted her to be safe while she worked.
Even when Ruth came to Boaz in the middle of the night, as her mother in law has directed her to do, he told her to leave before the sun came up so that no one would think badly of her.
What we can learn from Boaz:
A man will not only be attracted to your outward appearance but he will be attracted to what you have to offer, such as your hard work.
A man that is interested in you will show his interest in you. You will not have to wonder what he is thinking or how he feels about you because he will show it. He will want to provide for you and keep you safe.
And like Boaz, he will not try to have sex with you to take advantage of you. Instead he will want to make it official. Make you his wife.
