Friendship, By Courtney S.


 By Courtney S. 

Friendship is apart of almost everyone's childhood. Especially as we get older and feel a need for support from someone other than our family. Someone who we can "unite" with and help us see things through the eyes of Christ to help us make the right decision (Romans 15: 5-6). Friends are usually the ones who play this role.
Are your friends loyal? Are you a loyal friend? Are you the type of friend that Wendy Hinson is speaking of in the poem below?
Think about this. Are your friends "gems" in your eyes? When you are away from them do you miss them very much? Do your friends bring you joy? In 2 Timothy 1:5 Paul writes to Timothy: Recalling your tears, I long to see you, so that I may be filled with joy. Paul is telling Timothy that he feels joy when he is in his presence.
Earlier on Paul had told Timothy that he keeps him in his prayers. Do you lift your friends up in prayer, when things are going well and when they aren't. Or, do you just pray for them when they are driving you crazy and you ask God to punish them, or to make them see things from your point of view? These are the things that I would like for you to think about.
Until Next Time,
~Courtney S.~
