Hello! How are you doing 😊? In recent weeks, I have had discussions on and also observed people’s understanding of the concept of friendship. Having done some inward observations on my perspective of friendship, I have come to see that I am also miles away from what it should be.
A popular man once said, “You will not be great in life unless you are good at choosing, forging and keeping terrific friendship (fools perish for lack of friends or for purely chosen friends).” Who are You? A product of what your family brought you up to be in your early years and the influence your friends have on (make you to be) in your later years.
In liberal societies like the USA (United States of America), friendship is kicked aside for romantic love, in conservative culture like most societies in Africa, family has the upperhand and in socialistic societies like South Korea, your civil relationship (relationship with neighbours and organization) should be your priority but the bible talks about a friend that sticks closer than a brother (Proverbs 18:24).
A brother or one’s family can be there in days of adversities but a real friend can always be counted on, it is a relationship committed to out of passionate love.
As a believer what does true friendship mean to you? What makes it unique? How do you discover it? Let us in on your thoughts in the comments box.
To be continued, see you again🖐🏾👋🏾.
