Proverbs 17:17: "A friends loves at all times.."
Over the past few months I have began some new friendships with some awesome Godly woman from my church.
I love my time with Derrick. He is without a doubt my BEST FRIEND. (See a post about friendship with our husbands HERE) However, I also have come to realize just how important it is to have Godly friendships with other people, especially other women.
So what is a Godly friendship?
Proverbs 17:17 tells us that a Godly friend loves at all times and in
27:6 we see that a godly friend will be faithful to tell you the truth -
even if it hurts.
It's important to have these Godly relationships so that you have someone who will pray for you, who will give you Godly council when needed, and who will love you for you, at all times, no matter what.
What can you do to be a Godly friend?
1. Make sure they know that they are important to you and God. (Write them a note, send a text, spend quality time with them, etc.)
2. Take time to listen to your friends.
3. Encourage them to be better women, wives and mothers.
4. Pray for them..everyday!!
So, are you this Godly friend? Are you seeking to develop these Godly friendships?
** Also, wives, remember that it's important for your husband to have these Godly friendships as well. Encourage him to have close friends that are holy and helpful to him.
