I've been thinking a lot about friendships lately, especially during Bible study this past week. The focus was on friendships.
The question I asked myself is:
Who are my friends, my true friends?
What about all of the good folks who accept friend requests on Facebook? I've seen some people with over 600 Facebook friends! 600?!?! When I look through the number of people who are my "friends" on my personal Facebook account, I think: they are great acquaintances, people I worship with, childhood friends, classmates, strong women of faith. But just a few of them would I say are personal, close-knit, tried and true, through thick and thin, pick me up when I'm low, friends.
Why is that? I think there are so many people we come in contact with in our lives, but very few are true friends. This verse shed light for me:
But there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother."
