I always complain that I don’t have any friends in my area. The truth would is I don’t have any friends in the area I live. But I definitely have deep friendships. Five that I can count on. They listen to me, are there for me, know my deepest darkest secrets, and always put a smile on my face. Did you know One in 10 people do not have a close friend and even more feel unloved. Researchers at Harvard have even concluded Having no friends could be as deadly as smoking. We need relationships. God created Adam and Eve so Adam wouldn’t be lonely. But we don’t need the shallow service on conversations. We need someone to sit us down and ask how we are and really mean it. One day I will hopefully do a post on friendships in the Bible. But for now really try to get to know people. Listen to what they have to say. Care about them. Love people well.
