Anyone that has ever watched the show Sex and the City know that its premise is to chronicle the four leading ladies as they search for love. Admittedly it is one of my favorite shows but there were always situations where one of the women compromised who she was to get or keep a man. All too often this is the case for women not living in a fictional T.V. show.
The scripture referenced above is found in Luke chapter 12 which talks about God’s concern and love for us. So many times we lose sight of God’s concern in our search for “Mr. Right”-which by the way doesn’t exist. There will always be something we have to compromise on – height, age – but we should never compromise so much we lose our self-respect. Being alone is not fun…trust me I know; but it’s better to be lonely than to be in a relationship that is unhealthy, demeaning, and spirit-breaking. And how sad would it be to be in a relationship and still be alone?
Take a few minutes each day to remember your worth. You should never settle for less than what you deserve.
