Be Like the Savior

(This is an excerpt from the book What Girls Need to Know About Guys/What Guys Need to Know About Girls.)

Let’s give you a situation, and you make a prediction. Two women are in New York City. One is a professional model, and the other is an employee of NBC (a secretary). They both have a folder full of papers, and they are going to drop them—sending the papers flying. The question is: Do you think more people will help the model or the secretary?

This test actually happened. As you might expect, people (especially men) flocked to help the model. A man even used his cane to keep some of the papers from blowing away.

But when the secretary dropped her folder, people kept walking by. After a dozen people ignored her, a woman finally helped.

That seems wrong, doesn’t it? But for some reason, that kind of scenario happens more often than not. Here is an interesting side note: They did the same experiment with a male model and a male employee of NBC. Again many people helped the model, while the “regular” person was ignored!

Be Like the Savior

"The Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart." —1 Samuel 16:7

But we know that God does not look on the outward appearance (see 1 Samuel 16:7). So if we’re going to be like Him, we shouldn’t respect only some girls. We must honor all of them.

One young man said, “I know that I’ve fallen into the trap of respecting only girls I like or think are cute. I have had to make it a goal to go out of my way to respect any young woman—no matter what.”
