Who do you surround yourself with? Friends can either make us better ourselves or make us lose ourselves. A true friend, is one that will love you for you. They won’t care about the material things you may or may not have. The Bible teaches us that a real friend is one that “sticks closer than a brother.”
Don’t feel like you have to change who you are to have your “friends” like you. God made you how He wanted you to be. If they can’t see past material things or the worlds view on friendship , their problem isn’t you it’s deeper than that, it’s in their hearts. Be a true friend to someone today. Be their support. A shoulder to cry on. Be a friend like Jesus. He didn’t care about anyone’s “social status” He loved their hearts. It didn’t matter what political views they had, the money they had…none of it. He simply loved them. He is a true friend. Be a friend like Jesus. Love people for them, not for who you think they ought to be. Be a friend that shows Christ’s unconditional and unwavering love. I guarantee if you do that you will find more joy in your heart!
“A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.”
Proverbs 18:24 ESV
