Are Christian friendships important to our walk with Christ?
Friends are very important and everyone needs a few good friends. Bad friends or too many friends can hinder a person's service to the Lord. Remember, all Christians have a best friend who sticks closer than a brother. And He can help us more than all our friends put together. That special friend is our Savior, Jesus Christ.
A true friend helps one be a better servant of the Lord. That is why one needs to take care in choosing friends. Choose wise friends who are sold out to the Lord. Remember, "He who walks with the wise will be wise, but a friend of fools suffers evil" (Proverbs 13:20).
