The Quality In Friends
Posted: Sunday, August 30
2 Corinthians 4:1-12
Verse of the day:
Whoever loves a pure heart and gracious speech will have the king as a friend. (Proverbs 22:11)
Whit is entertaining. Bravery is impressive. Brilliance is daunting. Passion is engaging. Quirkiness is refreshing. Determination is productive, and patience can be wonderfully relieving.
Think of every friend that holds influence in your life. All of our friendships are formed from the observation of an admirable quality. (i.e. You find her career ambition inspiring, OR you find his humor entertaining.) These admirable qualities define our friendships. I would argue that we are all ‘unromantically’ attracted to our friends. Like files to a bug light, we see a quality that we desire, and we move closer.
