Friendship Makes The Difference

February 27, 2015
Last night we were sitting with some friends just talking or as we have started calling some of our time together, we were having a “therapy session”. I’m not really sure how people make it in life without good friends.
Real, true friends are a gift from God. We all need those people in our lives that when something bad happens, one of your first thoughts is “I need to talk to ______”. Aristotle said that friends were “a single soul dwelling in two bodies.” That’s why you need to reach out to them in your time of need, because they are a part of you. You don’t have to try and put on for them, you can just be yourself. A.A. Milne said that “It’s more fun to talk with someone who doesn’t use long, difficult words but rather, easy words like ‘What about lunch?'”.
You can just be you, because they know you and still love you. If you are having to change who you are toFriends1 have a friend they really aren’t your friend, they just like a made up person. Your best friends will not be people who like the person you pretend to be, but your best friends will be people who love who you are.

Even God has shown us the importance of friends in our life. There is a lot of the book of Proverbs that talks about your relationships with other people. Also in Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 it says “Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up” God knows that we need people to help us through our life. We will stumble, we will fall, and we will fail through our lives. But a true friend will stick beside you the whole way. A true friend will lift you up.
One of the best ways that you can develop these relationships is to just be the kind of friend you want to Friends2have. “A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.” (Proverbs 18:24) So once you develop that friendship you have to continue to be that friend. Be what you want them to be in the relationship and more times than not they will follow your lead.
Your friendship could be the answer to someones prayer.
