Is sufficient for our every need
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”
Looking to the opening books of the New Testament, we find the life and ministry of Christ on Earth recounted from four distinct perspectives. Each of these four Gospels presents Christ in a specific role in His relationship with us.
Matthew shows us Christ the King, Mark shows Christ the Servant, Luke shows us Christ the Son of Man, and the Apostle John portrays Christ as the Son of God.
If you want a friend, be a friend. There is never a guarantee. However, if you do not put anything into a friendship, it’s certain the friendship will never grow.
Keep in mind that friendships take time. The Bible says “a man of too many friends will soon come to ruin,” Proverbs 18:24. Why is this? Because too much time maintaining too many friends doesn’t allow you the time you need to work your job, spend time with your family, do your school and life work, and take care of your business. If a person has 10 or 20 friends to spend time with every week or even month, they will eventually neglect their family or careers.
The key is balance. Invest in people with your time and life, and some of it will come back to you from others. Sometimes it won’t. This is why you have to be realistic in building your network of friends and relationships.
