Any living thing that seeks to grow and thrive requires SUN, WATER, NOURISHMENT and LOVE. Oddly enough, the same is true for human beings as well as relationships.
Friendship is a living, growing and thriving thing. It must be cultivated, managed, disciplined and loved in order to run its natural course. Most importantly, friendship must grow.
Respect, leadership and stewardship (responsible care for things you are responsible for) create, cultivate and sustain life and friendship. Friendship is the foundation of ALL other human interactions.
Properly managing friends shows God you are capable of having more.
Have a great day!
