When I start to date someone, it’s not just for the company or to have someone to text all the time. If you’re like me, you date with a purpose to see if you could potentially end up with that person for the rest of your life! I’ve recently studied some verses in the Bible that can make the perfect checklist for what a Godly boyfriend should be like!
One of my absolute favorite verses provides the perfect list to follow on how both you and your boyfriend should act in a relationship! 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 says, “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.” This verse sets up a complete checklist of what you need to look for in a relationship. It tells you as straight as it can which qualities and characteristics are in a Godly man. That being said, we as girls need to uphold these qualities for our boyfriends, too! Another important characteristic we need to pay close attention to is the confidence you and your boyfriend have in each other. The Bible calls for having full confidence in one another and lacking nothing in value. I urge you to practice all of these things in your future relationships!
I hope this checklist helps you judge who your next boyfriend needs to be!
