Cultural Quote #310: The Myth Of The Ideal Partner

I see this one mostly with guys looking for perfect girls. Girls within the church are really [?] in a bad way. They’re told that they need to be this perfect, pure person, and then all the guys look for that perfect, pure girl to fill themselves and validate themselves. If I can win this amazing pure girl, this must mean I am a true strong man. And that is not the case. A man should go to a woman to offer his strength not to find his strength. He needs to go and find his strength from God, not from the woman that is this perfect person that’s going to fulfill him the rest of his life. It’s not realistic. Just because someone has sinned in certain ways in their past doesn’t mean they can’t be a great spouse.
