Friends

13 01 2010
Friendship is truly a gift from God.  Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 says: 
“Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up! Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.”
Ok, so I know that part about lying down together is kinda weird, but do you get the point? God gave us friends for a reason, so that we can pull each other up when we fall crashing to the ground,  to help each other in our walks with Christ, to defend each other, and to love each other. Romans 13:10 says:
“Love does no harm to its neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.”
Does the word neighbor mean just the people next door? No. The word neighbor here means EVERYBODY. This includes girls. Love the girls around you. Now, I don’t mean the romantic kind of love. I mean the sincere kind of love that shows that you care about them, that shows that you know they are special because God created them that way. If you are a Christian guy we are your sisters in Christ, please treat us that way! 
     God intended for us to have friendships. He wants us to have friendships with both genders, they are SO important. Some of my closest friendships are with guys, but they are not the same kind of close friendships that I have with girls. But thats the way it should be!
     Be a good friend, to both girls and guys. But you have to treat girls differently than your guy friends. That whole tough love thing doesn’t really work with us, sorry. Be a gentleman. It impresses us when you treat us like we are worthy to be treated differently.
