I am not the world’s best-ever friend… I forget to text, sometimes take to long to email back, and occasionally even forget birthdays (if I have forgotten yours, my sincerest apologies!)
But I love my friends.
I truly believe friendship is a gift, and a godly friend will be worth their weight in gold. Having someone that you can trust, turn to, and love is such a blessing.
I think sometimes we neglect our friends ( I know I do) and take them for granted ( I have!). We think they will always be there for us, and guard them jealously while not taking time for them…
Today, just a little reminder to be a friend! Maybe you could pick one thing to do for someone, and do it once a week for the next few weeks…
Text a friend
Something encouraging, maybe just a reminder how special they are to you!
Surprise them with a gift
It doesn’t have to be big or expensive 🙂
Take them out to eat or for snacks
who would turn down a coffee date?
Pick a chapter from the Bible to study together
Handwrite a card
(I know it isn’t 2003, but a handwritten card is welcome anytime 😉 )
Pray for them
Ask for prayer requests, or just let them know you are remembering them in prayer
