Classy Woman – Considerations Before Marriage

As somebody who has traveled to over 50 countries throughout the world and dated countless women, it is worth noting that all women are not classy.

Over the years experience has taught me that looks are not everything, although most women will spend a good portion of their life attending to and complaining about their appearance. The classy woman however transcends her outward appearance and cultivates the woman within.

The best way to test a woman’s character is to watch how she handles money and people. The frivolous woman will spend carelessly and not consider where the money is coming from, neither how hard it was to earn. The lofty and egotistically self-absorbed woman will treat people of low estate poorly, considering them merely servants to attend to her every beck and call. Such behavior smacks of pride and arrogance, which a woman who merely lives for herself manifests often.

In regard to finances of all the women I have dated, one in particular proved exceptional in her ability to surprise me in her financial dealings. She was visiting friends in New York, during which we spent a few days skiing at Lake Placid. I made and cared for all of the arrangements, but to my surprise before she said her goodbyes she gave me an envelope full of hundred dollar bills to cover her share of the trip.

Such is a genuine woman of class and nobility. Sadly such a mentality is long gone and hard to find in North American and Western women who feel for some strange reason because of their looks and charm they are entitled to take advantage of men.  

The few women who act otherwise will always stand head and shoulders above the rest regardless of their looks. My wife has endured many hardships our first two years of marriage, as I by no means am a money man. Nevertheless we have lived well and traveled to many wonderful parts of the world – Australia, Fiji, Holland, France, Monaco, Puerto Rico, Aruba, St. Thomas, Curacao, and St. Martin.

Yet in our day to day lives both of us have struggled as entrepreneurial business owners. That being said financial struggles necessitate that we share a car. I’m always thankful and appreciative whenever my wife takes the initiative to put gas in it. Such is unthinkable for many women who merely use hubby’s credit card. Thank God I’m not saddled to such a woman.

My beloved wife is thrifty and sells items around the house we don’t use on Craigslist to help us out financially. She clips and saves coupons to save money when we grocery shop. Plus she’s paying her own way back to Canada to be in her friend’s wedding. Our first year of marriage she willingly shared a mobile phone with me to save money.

Guys you want to see your woman under pressure before you marry her. While dating I often took women overseas, out of their comfort zone, to see how they would react. Women and men put on a false face when they are dating to show their very best. Only over time as people let down their guard, does their true self appear and show itself.

Listen to the words of choice, the way people express themself, and their feelings. Are they positive or negative? Encouraging or destroying? Uplifting or draining? Do they bad mouth and belittle people? All of these are red flags to warn you of who you are dealing with.

Little things are everything. The devil is hidden in the details. If you date a woman who is all about herself and never offers to pay her way, watch out. Sometimes when my wife wants to go out, she pays for us.

Remember before marriage men want a cute face and nice figure. After marriage, men want a responsible woman who will help pay the bills.

Life is not all about her hair, dress, and shoes. She may think otherwise and if you allow it, you my friend are not wise and in store for a long arduous ride.  

Do yourself a favor men. If she’s high maintenance while you are dating her, move on while you can before you take her hand in marriage and have to endure a life of misery.

Romance without finance is foolishness and to think you can change someone is fatally presumptuous.

Evangelism Explosion – Acquire the Fire to Win Souls, Make Disciples, Impact Nations, Birth Revival

Soul winning and evangelism training with worldwide evangelist Paul F. Davis who has won souls across the globe touching over 50 countries and 6 continents.

Equip and empower your church to seek and save the lost. Unprecedented church growth, harvest of souls, and revival now!

Jesus said, “I will make you fishers of men” (Mark 1:17).

Fishing happens usually one of two ways: with a hook and a net.

I liken the net approach to fishing nations, going into all the world to “seek and save the lost” (see Luke 19:10). Yet the evangelist Philip was also skillful in one-on-one evangelism. Being led by the Spirit of God to leave a great revival full of multitudes of people to whom he was preaching in the city of Samaria, Philip was taken by God to Gaza on the backside of the desert to speak to an Ethiopian of great authority (see Acts 8).

The divine appointment orchestrated by God was beautifully arranged, because when Philip arrived and showed up the Ethiopian was already reading the prophet Isaiah from the Bible (see Acts 8:26-29). Philip immediately asked him, “Do you understand what you are reading?” (v. 30)

Interestingly, Philip’s evangelistic approach began in the form of a question. Jesus was often no different in His approach. The Lord asked His disciple Peter, “Who do men say that I am? Who do you say that I am?” (see Matthew 16:13,15).

Here are some good soul winning and evangelism questions to use to open hearts in route to salvation when you converse with people on a daily basis.

– Have you discovered the grace of God?

– Have you ever felt burdened and weighed down by sin?

– Have you ever felt guilt and shame, but didn’t know what to do about it?

– Do you know how to be reconciled to your heavenly Father and experience the blessings of heaven?

– Have you experienced the embrace of our loving God?

– Do you know the fullness of life available to you in Jesus Christ?

– Have you experienced the joy of newness of life?

– Do you know the Prince of peace who quiets all stress and strife in your life?

– Do you have any questions about God or things I can pray for you concerning?

– What is the best thing and the worst thing you have ever heard about God?

– Have you ever known religion and religious people to misrepresent the heart of God?

– How do you and your family feel about God?

Church Growth Consultant – Transition, Transcend, and Transform Your Church

Church growth is an interesting topic because there are two ways one can evaluate growth. Growth can be quantified by numbers in how many people attend the church services. Alternatively, growth can be measured by spiritual growth and godly character evident in a believer’s life. Thus church growth is measurable inwardly and outwardly.

The American Pastor usually wants growth to occur numerically in terms of how many people attend his church. Righteousness, holiness, and repentance are rarely preached in the pulpits of America. Such are essentials to facilitate spiritual growth and maturity.

The truth and irony to some however is that without inward spiritual growth, outward exponential growth in terms of people will not occur. This is based simply on the fact that people attract people. Everybody knows and influences somebody.

To what extent we influence others is determined by our own ability to passionately respond to God and humanity. Secondly, our grasp of truth and spiritual concepts paves the way for having meaningful spiritual dialogue. Thirdly, our own level of personal happiness and fulfillment will be either contagious attracting people to us or when we are sadly lacking serve to repel people away from us.

These are intangible things that cannot be taught, but that must be caught through relational and spiritual interaction. Unfortunately, the American church is far more cerebral than it is spiritual. We want to study everything to the nth degree and create a formula to follow. Sadly we are more creative in the drafting of our rigid methodological formulas than we are in our living expression among our peers who we desire to influence.

My travels to over 50 countries and 6 continents, working across denominational lines in an interdenominational capacity, have shown me that passion is paramount and crucial. Again something that cannot be taught, but that must be caught. Passion and love cannot be adequately explained, they must be experienced. The experience is unforgettable and very impressionable.

Thus it is the divine experience that precedes exponential growth. Such a divine experience can occur either directly with the Creator Himself, or indirectly with His people who are deeply connected to heaven. The drawing power of the Holy Spirit flows both ways and produces remarkably in and through whosoever will.

This is what the world needs – an experience with their Creator and with people who know Him intimately in divine relationship.

Paul Davis is a worldwide minister, peacemaker, mediator, and life purpose coach (relational & professional).

Paul is the author of several books including Breakthrough for a Broken Heart; Adultery: 101 Reasons Not to Cheat; Are You Ready for True Love; Stop Lusting & Start Living; Waves of God; Supernatural Fire; Poems that Propel the Planet; and God vs. Religion.

Making Bricks for Pharoah

Oh, no my wonderful Lord

We’re making bricks for Pharoah

Jehovah-jireh don’t delay to show

Your mighty power so all may know

That you provide for your people abundantly

Once again come forth and open the Red Sea

Provide miraculously and pay taxes supernaturally

Open the mouths of fish to cough up cash happily

As in times past as you did for the apostle Peter

Don’t let financial constraints silence and deter

Your people from seeking first the kingdom of God

Show yourself strong so greedy creditors will applaud

Let debt cancellation and cash flow magnificently

Let financial acumen and skill break forth intuitively

Within your people’s hearts and minds spiritually

Creative ideas to solve all our monetary problems

Divine appointments, alignment, and relationships

So we can rejoice, stay afloat, and not be a sinking ship

El Shaddai the nourishing one Father to whom we come

Help us because of our endless toil life is no more fun

Grievously vexed by our employers we cry for liberation

We need far more than the power of the resurrection

We also need wisdom, wealth, prosperity, and satisfaction

Alleviation from this gruesome plight of financial despair

Arise for your namesake oh God and show us you care

Before stress and strain prematurely grays our lovely hair

Or makes it fall out entirely as we worry and agonize daily

No more do we wish to make bricks for an oppressive Pharoah

Arise dear Lord so with the Great Commission we can boldly go

And preach the Good News of Christ throughout the entire earth

Telling all souls the glories of your name and about the new birth.
