Do your friends support you? Do they help you reach your goals? Are they inspiring or positive? Or do they hold you back, keep you in your comfort zone? Or even worse zap your energy? These might be some valuable questions to ponder while moving forward this New Year. I have heard it said, “You are the sum of your five closest friends.” The benefit of having good friends is immeasurable. Friends make a major difference to your quality of life. Today think about ways you can begin pursuing friendships that honor God, inspire you to greatness, and encourage you and your family.
Proverbs 18:24 There are “friends” who destroy each other, but a real friend sticks closer than a brother.
