What qualities do godly men think a godly woman should possess? Well, I asked around, and a few guys shared what they considered must-have qualities of a godly woman.
To be clear, it’s not our purpose to try to live up to a man’s expectations, but rather to be the woman God has called us to be alone, and hopefully become a blessing should the right one come our way. Be encouraged to know that there are godly men out there whose priorities in a woman are her innermost qualities for long-term good!
The top three qualities:
- Patience. A lot of the guys expressed that it’s important to them that a woman have patience—with him and his mistakes, and with others around them, as well as having trust in God’s timing. A couple of the guys even expressed the importance of a woman having patience with herself and her own struggles (Awww!).
- Wisdom. When I asked the guys to expound on what they meant about wisdom, they shared that it’s important that a woman seek God for direction and respond to life through the Word of God.
- Puts God first. It’s important to God-following men that a woman’s relationship is also rooted in God first, because the rest of her relationships will reflect from that heart! They want to be sure that as a couple, you’re both pursuing growing in Him.
Some other qualities they listed:
- Joyful/Sense of humor
Here’s what a few of them had to say were their three must-haves:
