Deal breakers in Dating

I posed a question today on Twitter: “For a ‘Christian’ single what should be the top two deal-breakers?” and got plenty of responses. Which leads me to a list I found and had saved for at least five years. My deal breakers in dating was was hidden in one of my journals and thought it would be a great list for you to print and save for your own personal records!

1. Clear-cut vision (Prov. 29:18; Hab. 2:2-3)

2. Teachable spirit (Prov. 3:11-12; Prov. 1:5-7)

3. Under authority (Rom. 13:1-5; Luke 7:6-10)

4. Leader (Eph. 5:22-23; Prov. 31:23)

5. Same beliefs (Amos 3:3) – this one’s circled REALLY big!!!!

6. Clear Conscience (Ecc. 11:9; Rom. 13:5; 1 Tim. 3:8-9; 1 Pet. 3:15-17)

7. Sense of Humor (Prov. 17:22)

8. Good with Children (Ps. 127:3-5; Matt. 18:2-6)

9. Financially Free (Rom. 13:7-8)

10. Prayer Warrior (Jam. 5:16)

Happy Bible verse hunting.

Incidentally, what’s on your list and why?

    Great list. To this I would only add (sorry don’t have a Bible with me):
    1) Integrity (maybe goes with #6)
    2) Purity [in context of course]

    3) AND most important, must be an incredible Scrabble player…just kidding:)
