I have a friend who ALWAYS sees the best in people . Like, how does this even happen, always choosing to see and speak of the rights and not the wrong.
Oh, this attribute was instrumental to my steadfastness in Christ as far back as 2005. Little wonder I found myself always by her side in fellowship back then and I have chosen to deliberately walk through life with her as my covenant sister.
Indeed, friendships and association are instrumental to our salvation walk and work. It is important that we choose carefully those we call friends. In the past I used to have trouble choosing friends especially because I couldn’t be bothered but I guess I’m now deliberate (more like I assess my friendships/associations and clearly define the union in order to manage expectations). That being said, Its not enough to have friends whom we draw from always, balance is key, we should also have friends who can draw from our well too…. Who will mention your name when writing their Salvation story?
So Morolade, while you unknowingly invested in me, I could very well look back now and say I am trying my possible best to also invest in people (I can bet she won’t get to see this post till after a week so shock me😂).
Christ in us, the hope of glory!
