What kind of friend are you?


5.29.15



Friends. Friendship. How sweet it is. It is a good thing to have good, honest friends in your life, or at least one. While we have many acquaintances, one good, honest friend is invaluable. What is your criteria for a good friend?  What are your expectations for a friendship?  The  Bible tells us that for a person to  have friends, he must first show himself friendly. Are you the kind of friend you would like to have?

How about trust, loyalty, steadfastness, honesty, forgiving, patient, kind, generous, humorous, encouraging, comforting, etc.? Then there are the interests in common that give us pleasure to do things together, to enjoy life in each other's presence.  There are many things that make up a deep and intimate friendship; things we want and need, but things we must have our self before we will attract a friend like this.

Why don't we pause today and think about this. Think about who you are and what you offer as a friend. Are you demanding and controlling? Are you fussy and manipulating? Do you require more than you are willing to give out?  Do you require all the attention? Do you do all the talking and decision making? Are you a good listener? Are you patient and kind? Do you take time to encourage and edify?



Remember, you get back what you give out.


What kind of friend are you?
