Ladies, Here Are 4 Perfectly Acceptable Times To Lower Your Standards To Get A Boyfriend

It's time to talk about something that everyone knows but doesn't want to readily admit: The dating scene today is a total nightmare.

I've heard it all from close friends, peers, and strangers alike: finding someone to call your boo in this day and age is horrific at best. No one wants to put in the effort or even be the one to talk first. Everyone you meet seems to be only after one thing. As time goes by, you lose hope and wonder if chivalry, kindness, and common sense have gone out the window.

Uninformed and ignorant people will tell you that you should lower your standards so you can get a boyfriend. I'm writing this article to tell you that I agree with this statement! Here are four absolutely perfect times to lower your standards when you're single and looking.

Never. Like never EVER.

There is no man in the world worth lowering your standards for. Dick is abundant and of low value.

There are none.

Any guy that says you should lower your standards is someone you really shouldn't take seriously and is likely attempting to make themselves feel better about the fact that they can't get a girlfriend.

Not even a little bit.

There are guys out there who will move mountains for you, buy you nice things, and make YOU their first priority. They will treat you like a queen, support you in everything you do, and much MUCH more. Lowering your standards will make you feel like you'll accept any garbage from anyone (when obviously, that just isn't so!)

None at all.

Read #1. Read it again.

Genuinely amazing men are definitely out there and you don't need to lower your standards to find them; you'll only end up finding more garbage than you anticipated, anyway!

The bottom line: Ladies, you may get discouraged trying to find a partner, but don't give up! Know your worth, and add tax.

Is God Reckless?

Exploring the controversy behind the popular worship song "Reckless Love"

Is God Reckless?

First things first I do not agree with people getting so caught up in the specific theology of a song that they forget who they are singing the song to. I normally don't pay attention to negative things that people say about worship music, but the things that people were saying caught my attention. For example, that the song was not biblical and should not be sung in churches. Worship was created to glorify God, and not to argue over what kind of theology the artist used to write the song. I was not made aware of the controversy surrounding the popular song "Reckless Love" by Cory Asbury until about a week ago, but now that I am aware this is what I have concluded.The controversy surrounding the song is how the term reckless is used to describe God's love. This is the statement that Cory Asbury released after many people questioned his theology regarding his lyrics. I think that by trying to clarify what the song was saying he added to the confusion behind the controversy.This is what he had to say,
"Many have asked me for clarity on the phrase, "reckless love". Many have wondered why I'd use a "negative" word to describe God. I've taken some time to write out my thoughts here. I hope it brings answers to your questions. But more than that, I hope it brings you into an encounter with the wildness of His love.When I use the phrase, "the reckless love of God", I'm not saying that God Himself is reckless. I am, however, saying that the way He loves, is in many regards, quite so. What I mean is this: He is utterly unconcerned with the consequences of His actions with regards to His own safety, comfort, and well-being. His love isn't crafty or slick. It's not cunning or shrewd. In fact, all things considered, it's quite childlike, and might I even suggest, sometimes downright ridiculous. His love bankrupted heaven for you. His love doesn't consider Himself first. His love isn't selfish or self-serving. He doesn't wonder what He'll gain or lose by putting Himself out there. He simply gives Himself away on the off-chance that one of us might look back at Him and offer ourselves in return.His love leaves the ninety-nine to find the one every time."
Some people are arguing that song is biblical because it makes reference to the scripture from Matthew 28:12-14 and Luke 15. Both of these scriptures talk about the parable of the lost sheep and the shepherd. The shepherd symbolizes God and the lost sheep are people that do not have a relationship with God. On the other hand some people are arguing that using the term reckless, referring to God's character is heretical and not biblical. I found two articles that discuss the controversy about the song.The first article is called, "Reckless Love" By Cory Asbury - "Song Meaning, Review, and Worship Leading Tips." The writer of the article, Jake Gosselin argues that people are "Making a mountain out of a molehill" and that the argument is foolish. The second article, "God's Love is not Reckless, Contrary to What You Might Sing" by author Andrew Gabriel argues that using the term reckless is irresponsible and that you cannot separate Gods character traits from God himself. For example, saying that God's love is reckless could also be argued that God himself is reckless. Reckless is typically not a word that someone would use to describe God and his love for us. The term reckless is defined as (of a person or their actions) without thinking or caring about the consequences of an action. However, Cory Asbury is not talking about a person, he is talking about God's passionate and relentless pursuit of the lost. While I would not have chosen the word reckless, I understand what he was trying to communicate through the song. Down below I have linked two articles that might be helpful if you are interested in reading more about the controversy.
