I remember one of the first times I hung out with someone who is now one of my really good friends. The first time we hung out it was honestly kind of awkward.
We didn’t have that much fun and at times, it was a struggle to think of things to talk about.
However, we didn’t give up and hung out another time. Now the rest is history and we are great friends. The key to remember in all friendships is that sometimes they take work.
Today’s Key – Friendships sometimes take work.
You might be having fun and then run into a roadblock. You might think what do I do? How do I move past this and still be friends?
Do to others as you would like them to do to you – Luke 6:31
And while sometimes there are reasons to end a relationship, many times, we just don’t invest the effort because we feel like it’s too much work. Lasting friendships do take some work, forgiveness, and grace.
So today, don’t give up on your relationships. Sometimes it takes work to find a friend you click with. Other times it takes work to stay friends with someone when you’ve hit a relationship roadblock. However, lasting relationships take work.
