It’s not easy. When you step off the playground, out of the classroom, and into the world of career and family, friendships are harder to define, develop, and maintain. What do healthy adult friendships look like? How can you be a better friend? And is it possible for imperfect friendships to glorify God?
These are the questions that boggled my mind and burdened my heart. And when I went to God with them, He gave me answers. He used the friendships in my life and truths from His word to teach me a lot about this complex topic of friendship. Now I’m sharing the results of those lessons with you! I pray that it will bless you as you navigate the relationships in your life.
