What I'm Waiting For.

One of my friends posted this on his Facebook wall and I saw it and totally stole it from him~

WHAT I THINK IT MEANS TO BE A MAN INSPIRED FROM PROVERBS 22:1-2 AND OTHER VERSES FROM THE BOOK

A MAN SHOULD FIRST AND FOREMOST PUT THE LORD FIRST IN HIS LIFE. A MAN SHOULD HAVE A CERTAIN WAY THAT HE CARRIES HIMSELF; A WAY THAT NOT ONLY INVOKES STRENGTH AND CONFIDENCE, BUT OF NOBILITY AND PURPOSE. HE MUST BE DRIVEN AND MOTIVATED IN A WAY THAT INSPIRES OTHERS.

SHOULD HE INDEED BE MARRIED, HE MUST UPHOLD ALL OBLIGATIONS TO HIS WIFE IN A MANNER THAT GLORIFIES THE LORD GOD. HE SHOULD LOVE HER ONLY SECOND TO HIS CREATOR, BUT WITH AN ADMIRATION THAT IS EVERLASTING. HIS CHILDREN SHALL BE SHOWN LOVE IN AN UNPRECEDENTED WAY; BUT YET CAREFUL THAT THEY DO NOT BECOME SELFISH OR UNJUST.

IN ALL WAYS A MAN SHOULD STAND FOR WHAT HE KNOWS IS RIGHTFUL AND BE ABLE TO DISCERN WHAT IS JUST. A MAN SHOULD NEVER CUT DOWN ANOTHER, BUT INSTEAD BE LIKE A ROOT THAT HOLDS THE OTHER UP. HE MUST BRING HONOR AND DIGNITY TO HIS NAME AND FAMILY.

HE MUST NEVER SACRIFICE WHO HE IS FOR THE ACCEPTANCE OF OTHERS NOR JUDGE THEM FOR THEIR IGNORANCES IN THOSE MATTERS. HE BELIEVES IN HIMSELF AND STANDS BY THE PROMISE OF GOD'S WORD. HE WILL LEAD HIS FAMILY IN THE WAYS THAT THE LORD HAS SET. HE MUST NEVER LOSE FAITH, BUT KNOW THAT THE LORD IS IN CONTROL AND THE KEEPER OF ALL THINGS.

This is why I'm waiting..because I know the "Proverbs 22 Man" is out there waiting for me.
