Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

nice guys...

nice guys

In my high school yearbook,
and throughout my life,
the comments most often associated with me,
were nice, friendly, and smart
(this last because I was
in the high/accelerated section).

Now those are always very "nice" comments...
can think of some I would not
want attached to my profile.
But, a part of me, always wanted to be
thought of as exciting,
very fun to be with,
or makes me laugh.

Now you have heard the expression...
"Nice guys finish last".
Well, I am an example of a "nice" guy
that finished a winner... with a wonderful family.
Still we nice guys have had
more than our fair share of rejection...
it appeared that most of the cute
(and even intelligent girls) as an example,
were looking for excitement...
you know from the "bad boys"
who paid them lots of attention,
made them laugh,
and were really fun to be with.

Oh, the girls were almost always friendly
with the nice guy and may even
spend some time with them...
at least until something or someone
more exciting turned up.
What is important however,
is not your sex appeal,
or even your friend appeal,
but your relationship
with your Heavenly Father.

He loves and wants to
spend time with all of us.
Spend time with Him...
and not just a hello (how are doing?) either...
real quality time and a lot of it.
"Any" relationship requires a degree
of trust and commitment.
And this relationship is not based on
who we are, but on who God is.
