TRUE CONNECTION REQUIRES COMMITMENT


Monday, 03rd May 2021

Proverbs 18:24 – A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.

Good relationships don’t happen by accident. They take cultivation, work, and a lot of time. That requires commitment!

The Bible says in Proverbs 18:24, “A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother”.

Did you know that your socialising can keep you from having deep relationships? You can be so busy networking, contacting, and making acquaintances that you never invest the time and energy and effort it takes to cultivate the deep, satisfying intimacy of a good friend or a good spouse.

It’s not wrong to have a lot of acquaintances, but they can keep you so busy that you don’t develop any vital, close relationships. You don’t necessarily need a lot of friends to make it in this world, but you do need a few good ones.

Focus on quality, not quantity. Your acquaintances, your hundreds of Facebook “friends” and Instagram followers aren’t necessarily going to be there when you need them. But the friends you are truly connected and committed to will be there.

Every important, close connection begins with a commitment. If you want to get beyond shallow, superficial relationships, you’ve got to be willing to stick with it.

HAVE A FRUITFUL WEEK
