The guy who plays games is not the kind of guy worth waiting for, and he’s not the kind of guy God wants for you. Read on to see why.
Insincerity Is Not of God
Game-playing, for both guys and girls, is, in essence, insincerity. Someone who acts as if they’re into another person when they’re actually not is being deceitful, selfish and unloving. While game-playing may seem harmless, it reveals the state of the player’s heart. He doesn’t actually care about people; he only cares about what people give him.
Insincerity is not of God. God is absolutely sincere, completely trustworthy in everything He says. A man who knows God should pursue the same level of honesty in his own life. So if a guy is playing games with your heart, his heart isn’t sold out to God’s plan—and that’s a problem.
Game-Playing Is a Sign of Immaturity
Secondly, playing games in romantic relationships is a sign of immaturity. Mature, spiritually grounded men and women don’t waste time leading others on. They choose sincerity and brotherly love over the short-term thrill of attention.
If there are any three-year-olds in your life, you know what immaturity looks like: vying for attention, demanding what is wanted, unwilling to wait. All of these things characterize a player, which means his inner maturity level is little more than that of a toddler. It doesn’t matter how cute he is: He’s not worth the trouble.
