But then again which 26 year old lady is really interested in a 26 year old video game playing, cartoon watching, magic playing boyfriend?
Religion aside, if my daughter would come home with a grown up boyfriend who spends his time this way and on top of that keeps himself busy with sci-fi science, string theory and parallel universes...I think I will scratch my head a few times.
I know a man who works in the Salvation army who recently had a much younger woman take interest in him. He makes very little money, and she was trying to coax him into leaving that position and pursuing a high-paying career--earlier in his life, he had a very upper-middle-class income. He's a REALLY good, godly man who now believes in serving the Lord in what he does, but the woman would not settle for him doing what he does for a minimal income. He had an awesome response: that he would not allow his value to be held hostage by his bank account. So yeah, that woman will be single for good while longer, and she's almost 30!
Proverbs 6:26--For by way of the prostitute a man is brought to a loaf of bread.
I also recently saw this comment from a different single man that I thought was so amazing that I saved it:
Thank you, thank you, thank you! So many Christian women have based my worth on what career I have and on how much money I have. I hear so many Christian women saying "I'm looking for my Boaz," which is really just a nice Christian way of saying "I want to marry a man for his money." And they claim that there are no available men in the church today. For years, I have pleaded with God for a good career opportunity so that I can be worth something to a woman. But I've realized that my worth is in Christ, not in a career. Christian women may shun me because I don't fit their idea of "God's best," but I know I am worth a lot to Jesus. And the way I see it, if a woman doesn't want to be there with me during my failures and struggles, then she doesn't deserve to be there with me during my success.
Praise GOD that more and more men are figuring out how to shut this door through which Satan tries to rob them of knowledge of their worth in Christ!!!! Wow!
