Happy Thursday Saints.
Proverbs 12:26 “THE RIGHTEOUS CHOOSE THEIR FRIENDS CAREFULLY”
If you have to be someone that you’re not in order to keep someone’s friendship then they’re not a real friend.
In this day and age of social media, it’s all about keeping up appearances. Everyone is trying so hard to impress others and see how many likes they can get for their latest post.
It’s amazing how you can get thousands of “likes” and still feel lonely and isolated from others.
God created us for more. He created us to connect on a deeper level than what social media can provide.
You can have thousands of followers and still not have anyone to confide in. You can have hundreds of people comment on your posts and yet have no one available to talk to.
Social media is quick and easy. Real friendships take time and they require a lot of work. Not work to impress one another but work to build trust and confidence in one another.
If you’re going to have the kind of friends who will stick with you in your darkest and most challenging times, then make sure you are that kind of friend to others.
Be the kind of friend that you want. If you want loyal, trustworthy, faithful, and loving friends, then be that way with others. If you want friends that you can confide in and be confident that they won’t expose your vulnerabilities to others, then be like that for other people now.
Finding good friends starts with BEING a good friend first. Make sure you are an awesome one.
Have a wonderful day. God bless and lots’a love,
