Daily Reflection #5

 A True Friend

True, genuine friendships are a precious gift. I’ve been blessed with some amazing friendships throughout my years. Some have lasted a lifetime, while others were only for a season. Some have been easy, while others didn’t turn out so good. It’s a chance you take when you open your life up to someone, but I believe it’s vital to find a friend who will love you enough to point you back to Christ. A friend who will lead you to godliness and not away from it. Someone who is willing to hold you up when you can’t hold yourself. Here’s the truth…everyone you know is not a true friend. Only a few qualify for this position. Some people are just better left not knowing all of your business. We need each other, ladies.

“Choose good people to be friends with. Be discerning in your choice. Recognize your own weakness and tendency to be influenced and molded, so that the friends you choose will shape you for the good, and encourage you in wisdom and godliness” (From a study I’m doing… It’s good advice to pass on to your children, too)

Lord, help me form healthy friendships. May I see the need for this because I need others to speak truth into my life. I don’t want to be the lone ranger. I need the support of others.

Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: If one falls down, his friend can help him up! Ecc 4:9-10
