Some months back, the general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor E.A Adeboye, gave advice to the unmarried youths on the criteria for picking a wife and there were a lot of reactions, some bad, some good.
Musician turn inspirational speaker, Lynxxx has also dished out his own advice and tips to choosing a life partner although he confessed to being guilty as charged.
Here’s what he has to say;
“It’s Sooooo easy to pass up on a good thing filled with opportunity, substance, value and true essence while chasing something that glitters and isn’t Gold.
We exist in a world where the distractions and its soo easy to get carried away in the Hype, following the crowd and fitting into what “Society” predicts is cool, that we put OUR own standards away and roll with what the world has deemed acceptable.
The usual answer to Questions like.. “What do you look for in a girl or a guy” goes something like … “She must be cute / fine, have a nice body, know how to cook, has a good job etc…”
The ladies.. “He must be successful, financially stable, good looking, have a built body, 6packs, live in lekki, drive a range etc”.
All well and good but sadly, your focus is on the WRONG things! Worldly things that are not the true ingredients to a long lasting relationship. ( Guilty… My previous interviews over the years are proof)
I have learned in faith that finding Mr / Ms Right begins with someone who already knows who THEY are in Christ! Someone who has the Love and Fear of God would lead u closer to him, therefore, closer to “You” and ur destiny. They say you can’t give what you don’t have, if all I have to offer is range and 6packs, that’s what I am bringing to the relationship table… Therefore I can be a monster on the inside and treat u anyhow. But a Man or Woman with a good Spiritual Foundation is limited to the world by the fear and Love of God and the Word…
Build your relationships on the concrete foundation of a spiritual relationship with God, pray together, pray for each other and then Slay together! REMEMBER: it’s never to late to dedicate ur current relationship to God for a fresh start! You deserve something that has a future otherwise..ur in class for yet another lesson. LOOK BEYOND THE OUTSIDE! What is INSIDE is what counts! —Bless yall!”
Thats that from Lynxx. What do you think?
