The Importance of Christian Friends!
Written by Christi Given | September 22, 2011
A great way to keep your mind on track and renewed is to surround yourself with Christian friends who are going to encourage you, pray with you and lift your spirits when you need it!
“As iron sharpens iron, so does a man (woman) sharpen another.”-Proverbs 27:17
But let’s say you haven’t been able to create a circle of Christian friends. Ask God to bring you even one friend who can walk with you and believe in you and He will. But you need to make yourself open to new friendship…you never know where or when you’ll encounter the friend who will change your life!
Of course, this isn’t to say you can’t have non-Christian friends. But it is wise to use discernment with those you hang around. It will be great in the future too, because as you grow and you develop quality friendships, you can help encourage those friends who need encouragement, too!
“Do not be misled: Bad Company corrupts good character.”-1 Corinthians 15: 33
Have you ever made a friend in an unusual circumstance? How did you find your best friend?
