This is For The Guys Again, Sorry Ladies

Do you remember a movie entitled, "I'm Gonna Get You Sucka" starring and directed by Keenan Ivory Wayans? If not, you should see it. Though released over 20 years ago (1988), it was one of the first African American films that had me laughing so hard I couldn't hardly breathe. At least with home viewing you can stop the DVD finish processing the scene, get up from rolling on the floor laughing, and start it again.

Anyway, in the movie there was this one scene when Keenan's character met the woman of his dreams. She seemed to have fit all of his criteria and she was just as interested in him as he was in her. Not showing any signs of restraint they took it to another level and was going to have sex. She decided to be completely honest with him right then and show that all he saw that he was attracted to came off when she went to bed. When she was finished discarding all of her man-made parts, she began to hobble after him and his affection for her that he once had was as phoney as all of her beautiful, desireable parts.

I was wondering this morning, when would a woman be completely honest with a righteous man of God. Should she answer the door for her date without makeup or should she wait until she is absolutely sure the desire you have for her isn't superficial? Should she tell you after you have divulged some things about yourself that she that used to be a prostitute before she came into the knowledge of the truth. Would your affection change for  her then? What if she did tell you something that troubled you on the inside to continue the relationship? Would you take off and run without explanation or bow out gracefully knowing she has a heart too?

Though it would not be the ideal situation because no matter what the age, I am sure a man would like to be considered as the only one and she would never have anyone else on her mind but you; however, my question would be, knowing that a righteous man's steps are ordered of the Lord (Psalms 37:23 KJV) and that the Holy Spirit leads us into all truth showing us things to come (John 16:13 KJV) and that the Lord would not have a man unequally yoked (2 Corinthians 6:14 KJV) - I would have to think, what do you look like to God in order for Him to match you up with someone like her (1 Corinthians 13-11 AMP)?
