We love friendship. And we have had a ton of different friendships over the years. Just thinking about all of the many places in the world we have had the opportunity to cultivate friendships at different times throughout our marriage blows my mind! It’s like no matter where we have been, and no matter for how long, God provided real friendships – deep friendships. But it was up to us to make the choice to invest in those relationships and what they were like. With every one of them, it took time – to spend together and get to know. And there seemed always to be a moment of hard that challenged us and gave us the opportunity to press on in love in those friendships. There were also mistakes made on our part – things we could have done better to love our friends. To make things easier. Just like in marriage, when you are in close proximity to another sometimes there is friction. So we just wanted to touch on today the experiences we have had with friends and their importance.

It gives opportunity to utilize your unique gifts and talents together. And most importantly, it allows you to follow Jesus’ example and model servant leadership in the way He perfectly lived it out.
