BE CAREFUL WHO YOU CALL A FRIEND

True friends randomly stop by your house on a Friday night to visit with you. Not all friends do that, but I'm blessed to have such wonderful friends that do. As I get older, I realize that we don't really have friends but rather associates. There only a few people in life that truly care about you. I never had a lot of friends anyways, but there are individuals that I really thought were my friends and turned out they were not. I think that's why it really hurts when people cut you off because I don't just let anyone into my life. Many times I try to figure out what I did wrong, but many times I didn't do anything wrong.

What is a friend? A friend is someone who is there for you in the good times and the bad times. A friend keeps it real with you and tells you when you are wrong. If you are doing all the giving in the relationship, then you do not have a friend. I try to be a very friendly person and I pretty much get along with anyone. However, I can no longer can afford to invest in relationships that really have no meaning.  Surround yourself with people that will invest in you just as much as you invest in them. Take a look at the individuals that you call friends and really analyze the relationship. You choose who gets to be a part of your life.  Choose your friends wisely.

Proverbs 17;17

A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.

Proverbs 18;24

A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly; and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.


I would love to hear your thoughts!!!!
