3 Ways to Capture A “GOOD” Man’s Interest
Where all the good men at? How many times have you heard that statement? If I had a dollar for each time I heard it, my rent would be covered next month…ok, maybe not. Anywho, my response to that question is “What are you doing to attract a “Good” man?”
The other day I was reading the story of Rachel and Leah, literally rolling in my floor, and I was reminded that to get a “GOOD” man, you have to have “GOOD” bait (so to speak). Rachel managed to get a man to work 14 years for her! How! How the heck did she captivate Jacob so much to the point where he was willing to work for her love….for 14 years? Though we may never know the answer, if we pay close attention, there are three qualities Rachel possessed that I believe every single woman desiring a “GOOD” man should possess as well.
Gen 29:9 “While he was still talking with them, Rachel came with her father’s sheep, for she was a shepherd.”
Not many women in the Bible were shepherds, but Rachel was! Whether intentional or unintentional, Rachel did what many women weren’t, thus capturing the attention of Jacob.
What are you doing differently? Are you following the crowd or making your own path? Unfortunately when you’re doing what everyone else is doing, you blend in! No “GOOD” man desires a replica of what’s already out there, to my knowledge they desire someone that’s “one of a kind”.
Be Pleasing to the Eye
Gen 29:17 Leah had weak[a] eyes, but Rachel had a lovely figure and was beautiful.
Ladies!!!! Ladies!!! Ladies!!!! I beg of you to look like something when you leave your home, no matter where you are going! Having an older bother and several older cousins, I’ve learned that men are EXTREMELY visual! Very few “GOOD” men want women who leave the house in their bonnets and are unkept. If you want to get noticed, look like something worth looking at.
Beauty goes far beyond the outward appearance; you must beautify your heart as well! No man, “GOOD” or “BAD” wants a woman who is bitter, angry and disrespectful!
Be Chased, Don’t Chase
Gen 29:27 Finish this daughter’s bridal week; then we will give you the younger one also, in return for another seven years of work.
After working seven years, Jacob was given Leah, but he still had a desire for Rachel; Jacob worked another 7 years to get what he wanted! A “GOOD” man will do the same! Maybe not seven years, but he will go after what he wants. Not once did we see Rachel running after Jacob. She allowed him to pursue her. When a “GOOD” man wants something, you don’t have to throw yourself at him, he’ll let you know if he wants you or not by his pursuit alone.
Take it from Rachel, it pays to be different, beautiful and patient! It won her a man who was madly in love with her! There are “GOOD” men out there! Make sure your bait matches your desired catch!
