FRIEND OR FOE?

The Bible in One Year:
Luke 22:21-46
Golden Verse
Everyone must be on guard against his friend, and no one can trust his brother; for every brother is as deceitful as Jacob, and everyone slanders his friends.
(Jeremiah 9:4 – TEV)

Have you ever seen movies like Air Bud, Hachiko, Alvin the Chipmunks, or Masha and the Bear? What is the similarity between those movies? Yep! All of them tell about man makes friends with animals. Yes, some people would say that they prefer being friends with their pets than with other people because of the animals’ faithfulness. Unlike human, animals will not tell lies and deceits, or betray them. People can hurt your feeling with their bad behaviors.

Guys, please remember that our ordinary friends are human just like all of us; and human make mistakes. Therefore always be careful in making relationship, especially in forming your friendship. Because friend and foe alike, it is better to keep the space between.

Be slow to fall into friendship; but when thou art in, continue firm & constant. – Socrates
Prayer:
“Dear God, thank you for giving me good and bad friends to learn how weak we are. We need your love to keep our relationships good and strong, so please teach me how to be a good friend for them. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”
