Be One to Have One by Gail

as iron sharpens iron Proverbs 27:17
25 years ago, people averaged 3 close friends.

Then came facebook, twitter, and scores of online social networks.

Now people average 60 close friends, right? Wrong. Studies show we’re down to 2.

Despite these falling numbers, we can’t be healthy without close relationships… no matter how many facebook friends we have. 

But healthy friendships take time and effort, commitment and consideration:
  • answering friends’ emails and returning their phone calls
  • scheduling time with them, not just assuming it will happen
  • listening, not just talking, giving, not just taking
  • cutting back on work, sports, and TV at times
Without friendships, we stay rough and dull. 

As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another. 
Proverbs 27:17 NIV

We need close friends who will cry with us, rejoice with us, and tell us hard truths when we need to hear them.

If you’ve neglected a friendship, do something about it today!
