Today a group of Christian men were publicly accused of being "drips", the implication being that they were not suitable life partners for a woman.
The term "drip" is not well defined so it is difficult for these men to defend themselves against this charge. However as they, like me, are Christians and as I am clearly a drip I thought I would add some observations to help define the term.
If you follow Jesus with all your heart you are a drip.
If you love the Word of God and seek to make it part of your life, daily desire a deeper walk with and understanding of the Word, and long for Christian maturity, you are a drip.
If you work tirelessly over the years to support your family and inlaws, you are a drip.
If you can discipline and disciple your children so they respect other people and their Maker you're a drip.
If you can live through the indescribable pain of your marriage hitting the rocks and stay faithful to your wife until it is healed you are a drip.
If you can remain on your knees when your marriage is completely broken, praying for your partner and that God will show you how to change the one thing you have that you can really change (which is you) you're a drip and a loser.
If you remain in a dead-end boring job which is massively below your capabilities, because that meets the needs of your wife and family for long term stability you're a complete drip.
If you are ever found with a tea towel in your hands your a drip. (Probably an effeminate one at that.)
And if you can do all these things you are clearly a World Class Drip. What woman would ever want you?
