Having moved multiple times, I can say I love the process of throwing stuff out and organizing priorities. I am not a collector and love to get rid of clutter. If it’s stored in a box and hasn’t been used, bah bye!!!!!!! (And garage sales only delay the purging). There is just something crazy fun about simplifying your life.
I am definitely much like that with my friendships. I’d rather have four quarters than 100 pennies. I’d rather know where someone stands and experience their loyalty than deal with a slippery slick what-can-I-get-from-you flake. You need to know who your friends really are. Don’t kid yourself, pretenders and chameleons are everywhere.
I whole heartily believe Proverbs 18:24: One who has unreliable friends soon comes to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.
My profile is trust. If I trust you, I’d die for you. That is why I love God so much. He isn’t fuel by pride and jealousy, isn’t a manipulator or a gossip. He is the same each time, standing with arms wide open, committed to you regardless the time or cost.
True friends cry when you leave. Fake ones leave when you cry.
“Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence. True friendship is a plant of slow growth, and must undergo and withstand the shocks of adversity before it is entitled to the appellation.” – President George Washington
Many hailed Jesus when he came into the city. But….look closely at who was there at the cross when He bled for mankind.
