Project: Standard — Conclusion

“Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the LORD’s purpose that prevails.” —Proverbs 19:21 (NIV) You might be confused as to why we are concluding our first ever Project, and we've only listed 10 standards, instead of 20. If you can remember (let's refresh our memory for a bit), at first we … Continue reading Project: Standard — Conclusion

Standard #10: Understanding and Patient

“Whoever is patient has great understanding, but one who is quick-tempered displays folly.” — Proverbs 14:29 (NIV) I just knew now (right at this moment, while typing this post) that patience and understanding goes hand in hand. When I first drafted the standard list I just wrote these two deliberately, without knowing there is a greater reason … Continue reading Standard #10: Understanding and Patient

Standard #9: Must Experience Difficulty Pursuing You

“Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.” — James 1:12 NIV For guys Before you frown again with me [the gentlemen], haha! You might say I am making your life difficult by listing … Continue reading Standard #9: Must Experience Difficulty Pursuing You

Standard #7: Loyal, Honest and Trustworthy

“He who pursues righteousness and loyalty Finds life, righteousness and honor.” — Proverbs 21:21 NIV Cheating is a conscious choice. Loyalty and honesty is always (well for me, haha!) associated with cheating (big no!). For me this is a deal breaker — if you have, in anyway and in any form cheated, then you might be out of my … Continue reading Standard #7: Loyal, Honest and Trustworthy

Standard #6: Good Working Etiquette

“The soul of the sluggard desireth, and hath nothing: but the soul of the diligent shall be made fat.” — Proverbs 13:4 (KJV) This is one thing greatly attracts girls to a guy — when he knows how important (and unimportant) work is. This is not about money — you’re getting my point wrong, but how and who he is with … Continue reading Standard #6: Good Working Etiquette

Standard #5: Consistent in Action, Not Missing in Action

“And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;” — Colossians 3:23 KJV FOR GUYS For me, consistency is the key. Apparently, (some — not saying all) men’s action becomes inversely proportional with time (meaning their actions deplete or decreases as time [together] goes by). Based on some books that I read (guys, … Continue reading Standard #5: Consistent in Action, Not Missing in Action

Standard #3: Must be Accepted by the Whole Family

“Honour thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise;” — Ephesians 6:2–3 (KJV) FOR GIRLS My dear girls, let your future love pursue not only you but your family as well — let him “court” them the same way he is courting you. Having the approval of your parents (including your siblings) will definitely give you … Continue reading Standard #3: Must be Accepted by the Whole Family

Standard #2: Must Value Your Purity Above All Else (For girls)

“Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.” — 1 Timothy 4:12 FOR GIRLS Oh my dear girls (and boys, I’ll have a seperate post for you), we know this is a sensitive matter. And in all honesty, talking … Continue reading Standard #2: Must Value Your Purity Above All Else (For girls)
