Andy Stanley did a four part series on called The New Rules for LOVE, SEX, AND DATING. It was very interesting, and I felt the need to take notes in an effort to retain the information. You can check out the series HERE . Below are some notes from the fourth part of the series.
Notes from Part Four of the series:
Are you becoming the person that the person you are looking for, is looking for?
When you fall in love you will believe anything
When it comes to marriage commitment is overrated
If you commit to something you can’t do it is irrelevant
If you promise you can’t fulfill because you are unable or unprepared it’s worthless
If you are not careful you are going to think that your ability to commit while override your lack of preparation, or you will allow the person you have fallen in love with to convince you that their track record is irrelevant, the patterns of their life are irrelevant, the path they have chosen for their life is irrelevant
The paths people choose trump the commitments they make
The past is the best indicator of where a person is headed and where they will probably end up
A lack of preparation cannot be trumped by a promise
The past is a better indicator than the promise
Become someone who can keep their commitments
Address your unresolved childhood issues
Ladies; Do you know how a fisherman determines how to bait his hook? It depends on what he’s fishing for. If you fish with your body, you are gonna attract body snatchers.
If you catch him with your body, you are going to have to keep him with your body. And nobody can do that.
You are a WHOLE person who needs to be looking for a WHOLE person. So when you meet a person with HOLES, just be their friend. Stop dating everyone.
