Strength: There is nothing better than a man who exudes strength. Not the muscle-rippling kind of strength, but strength of mind, heart, and spirit. A strength that comes from a man who knows what he believes and stands firm for what’s right. A strength in recognizing right from wrong, and confessing when he has given into the latter. A strength that is confident enough to do right, choose right, and be right. In this day of compromise, women are looking for a man who is strong enough to stand his ground- holding on to his values, his beliefs, and most importantly, His God.
Compassion: You can always recognize a real man by taking a look at his heart. Does his heart move for the things that move God’s heart? Is he broken by the pain in his life? Is he moved by the sins he’s working to overcome? Is he affected when things are not as they should be in life, in situations, in relationships? A real man is one who allows his heart to be moved, and then allows his actions to follow his heart. A man who strives for healing, restoration, and resolution. A man who strives to right the wrongs around him- and the wrongs within him. We are looking for men of compassion, tenderness, and love- because therein we will always find the heart of Jesus.
Humility: What raises a man up more than any other earthly thing is his ability to humble himself. A real man doesn’t need to talk up who he is, because his life does that for him. He can put away the talk, because a man of humility is focused so much more on his walk. He is quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to become angry- because he’s put away his “rights” for the right to be selfless, loving, and full of grace. The greatest example of humility is found in the manliest man- Jesus: a man who laid down his rights, and made himself nothing in order to be an example of undying love and affection to the bride who won his heart. Real men seek to do the same.
