For the Love of Friendship

February is the month of love. This month I am will write about love—the love of friendships. Scripture highly encourages us to commit to one another in friendship. Why? Because we were made for community.

In the beginning of the book of Genesis God created the various components of our worlds. After each creation He said, “It is good.” However, Genesis 2:18 reads, The Lord God said, “It is not good for man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.” Then, He created Eve for Adam wouldn’t be alone. Well, we know how that turned out. But, I digress . . .

It’s not good for anyone to be alone. Hence, we need friends. For myself, my family can’t meet my emotional needs as well as a girlfriend. Sometimes, I just need a friend to listen to might rants and raving—over a self-induced pity party.

I would love to hear about your friendship. As I blog, chime in on what you have discovered, in the arena of friendships.
