If you are like a lot of women, then you are probably asking yourself, what are the characteristics of a godly man that I need to look for? And that are of these qualities really important? That’s exactly what I want to answer in this article.
Hey everybody, I’m Waqas. Welcome to QuotesG, where I talk about faith-based dating and relationships.
So, in today’s article, I want to go into detail on the personalities, characteristics, and qualities that you want to look for in a godly man.
Because some of these will make your life as a future wife much easier. So, let’s get right into it and start with number one.
7 Characteristics Of A Godly Man
As you can see, number one is a no brainer, but it’s worth repeating anyways. I always say the trust is the foundation of every relationship, but in order to build trust, you need honesty.
You want a man that you can truly trust in, that is honest with you and tells you from the get go what his intentions are, what his actions are, so that you can observe his speech and the way he handles things and see if those align with the person that he says that he is.
Honesty will make it so much easier for you later on to know that, hey, when he says something, he really means it and he will take care of it. So that is your number one characteristic in the godly man that you want to look out for.
An attitude of giving and generosity really shows itself in the relationship. In your future marriage, you want to be with someone that freely gives, not just to you, but also to the people around you that might be in need.
Because a God-fearing man understands that his riches are not his own, but that they are from God, and that if he gives, he’s actually attracting favor back into his live because giving blesses to receive a just as much as the recipient. And it attracts favor back into your life and into your future marriage.
3. Good Communication Skills
Whenever someone asks, what is the most important thing in a relationship? What do we all say? Communication. Everybody knows that answer, but do we all really know what good communication skills are?
Communication’s actually something that you can learn and it’s a great characteristic to have, not just for future babe, but for yourself as well. It is a great characteristic to look for in a godly man and to see if he is self-aware and if he knows how to communicate his wants and needs without losing his temper or giving you the silent treatment.
So definitely look for a man that respects you enough, to share his own opinion, even if it differs from yours with respect and with empathy.
Now I have a question for you girls. Do you know how to be a good communicator or do you do the nothing, whenever somebody asks you if something is wrong? So please let us know in the comments below. What has been your experience, and do you know how to communicate well?
I personally have a love-hate relationship with perseverance because whenever you have to persevere, let’s be honest, it’s not fun. But why would it be a good quality for a godly man to have? And the answer is more obvious than you might think.
If you are 21 years old… As a matter of fact, if you are 13 years old, you know that life will try you not once, not twice, but several times.
Challenges, setbacks, and flat out failures will happen and they will test your relationship, your love, and your faith. So you want to be with someone that knows how to persevere, that understand that God is good all the time, and that has faith.
You don’t want to be with someone that gives up at the first sign of resistance, but with someone that is patient and that trusts in God to work out things on his behalf, for you, and for your future family. Perseverance is so important.
The reason why I’m bringing up pride is because humility is the exact opposite of pride. In a healthy relationship, both people are able to lay aside their selfishness, and actually see their partner’s well-being just as important as their own.
You want to be with a man that can resist the desire to always be right and that sees the peace in the relationship as more important as his own pride. That’s the godly characteristics you need to look for in a godly man.
I don’t know about you, but there’s nothing more attractive than knowing that a man has his life together. Okay?
Being responsible is a great indicator for maturity and wisdom. A godly man should be willing to take charge and make decisions. Spirit led. But he also should be able to take responsibility for his actions and hindsight.
So observe your boyfriend when he’s under fire. Does he own it or does see repeatedly blame it on someone or something else? Because remember, small decisions now become big decisions later, and you don’t want to be with someone that can take charge because that means he can’t lead.
7. Fear of God
Last but certainly not least, the most important characteristic of a godly man is the fear of God. You see, a man can have all the mentioned qualities, but if he doesn’t that fear God, then there’s no guarantee that he is going to act accordingly.
The only, I repeat, the only thing that’s going to keep a man in charge is if he fears God and lives his life accordingly.
Knowing that God judges our behavior, even what is done in the dark, that’s what keeps us obedient and encourages us to use all these great qualities.
So, you want a man whose prime desire is to please God and not you? Well, this is it. Those are my seven characteristics to look for in a fine, godly man.
But I challenge you, don’t stop here, and actually do a word study on biblical manhood, and find out what it means to be a man and what characteristics you should really look out for because they are many, many more.
