How many friends do you have? My Facebook page says over 3000. But those aren’t really friends. I’ve never wanted fewer friendships, at least fewer REAL friendships. But that’s difficult in today’s world. And yet we were made for friendship.
The theme of friendship and relationship is all through the Bible. We read of how friendships were strengthened, and sometimes, how they were weakened. Jesus even called himself a “friend of sinners.” But for some reason, this friendship idea seems like a foreign concept in our world.
We have lots of connecting and “networking,” but are those relationships just transactions in our fast-paced society.
Drew Hunter has some insight and answers on this issue in today’s podcast.
