In life generally, we all seek perfection:whether in career or business or as it may apply to different individuals,but we never ask ourselves this question"What effort am i making towards such a level of perfection that i seek"?.
Whenever you come across a young lady,and you ask her what sort of a man she desires in life as a partner ,she will probably give you the following qualities :He has to be tall,dark(not too dark)like chocolate kind of,have six packs,has a good job thats pays well enough for him not to complain that i"m extravagant when i ask for cash,rides a good car,lives alone in a cute apartment(because i won"t tolerate intruders like mother/sister_inlaws),cute enough for me to flaunt in public and so on............... i mean the list is endless. Who in God"s name has seen a man with all these qualities,LADIES!!! you can"t find all of these in one person.
On the other hand , a young man will tell you ,he wants his wife to be very beautiful,have the necessary curves in the right places,not fat(some would even tell you she has to be size 8 or 10,should have a degree but won"t work because she has to stay home with the kids,very obedient,honest,well spoken,neat and tidy,be ready to take his orders,look very sexy and hot even afte five kids,very economical with his hard earned cash,cook like a five star hotel chef,and it goes on....................the list is endless!
Have we ever considered the fact that in both Men and Women,we cannot find all these qualities in one person? Their is no perfect man or woman out there",LOVE is all about loving the imperfect person perfectly", do not be decieved, no such thing as a perfect man or woman exist!
Once knew a man who got married to a woman who only knows how to boil "white rice", he knew her weakness and yet agreed to marry her because he believed that ,she would learn and become good at it someday,this happened in an african society where cooking for any man is vehemently taken as one of the criterias of choosing a wife!.For God sakes you have to know how to cook,how do you explain to your inlaws,that their son or brother will be doing Nandos,Mr Biggs or SFC for the rest of his life or gets a cook?But this man took a bold step for the love he had for her and went ahead to marry her and then engaged her in a cooking school,where she goes to daily to learn how to cook,she attended this school for a while and then got very good at cooking. Today the husband is very proud of her cooking.
Tell me, if the man had refused to marry her just because she didn"t know how to cook,would she have learnt? would she have been the type of woman he wanted her to be?
Therefore brethen ,that Man/Woman can be who you want him/her to be if only you begin to love the imperfect him/her perfectly.
"GIVE THIS A THOUGHT TODAY" for as imperfect as we are Christ loved us all perfectly!!!..................................
