I am Christ’s and:
Will attract Godly friends
Let’s look at what the Bible says about friendship?
The man of too many friends will be broken in pieces and come to ruin, but there is a true, loving friend who is reliable and sticks closer than a brother.
Two are better than one because they have a more satisfying return for their labor.
No one has greater love, or stronger commitment, than to lay down his life for his friends.
As iron sharpens and influences another through discussion.
1 Thessalonians 5:11
Therefore encourage and comfort one another and build up one another, just as you are doing.
To summarize, according to the above verses a godly friend is someone who:
Friends can make or break your child and we, as parents, must teach our children from a young age to seek out Godly friends with above mentioned characteristics.
Why do we need Godly friends?
We lift up our children to You and ask that You would bring Godly friends and role models into their lives. Give them the wisdom they need to choose friends who will uplift them and never compromise their walk with You in order to gain acceptance. Give us as parents wisdom to guide our children in the selection of their friends. Let us instill in them Your word by reading, praying and worshiping together every day. May each of their friendships always glorify You.
