Friend of Friends

                                   > Is Kindred in spirit
                                   > are emotions & attachment that grow in time    
                                        as both know each other intellectually
The choice of a friend is very crucial to every individual being. Character is of utmost necessity.
                                     > some of us just want acceptance...
                                         people don't want to be told what's wrong
                                         and how bad the attitude is or his association 
                                     > some of us just want belongingness.
                                         nevermind the kind of trade or work
                                         where they engaged in,  even if it's
                                         not right.

                                      > some love to hear praise,
                                          recognition, flattery and only those
                                          that the ears want to hear.

                                      > some of us just want some 'shock
                                         absorber and trouble shooters'. People
                                         are remembered as friends if there are
                                         problems or want to ask some favors 
                                         like debts, borrow stuffs etc.

                                     >  but some are truly persuaded
                                         that corrections, rebukes and loving favor
                                         are ingredients in friendship.  Each desire the
                                         best life and right attitude for his/her friend.
                         Intimacy  is developed if masks are removed and honesty
                         defines the friendship.  Material possession is not an element
                         in real friendship.  Things in common or being in 'one ship"
                         make friends stronger. Togetherness, communication,
                         understanding, respect, helpfulness, and correct motive
                         make a happier  and true lasting friendship.

               The Lord Himself spoke and taught about choosing our friends and companions.
                   Proverb 13:20 "He who walks with wise men will be wise, but the companion 
                                                              of fools will suffer harm.
                   Proverb 17:17 "A friend loves at all times and a brother is born for adversity."
                   Proverb 27:6a "Faithful are the wounds of a friend..."
                   James 4:4 "Do you not know that friendship with the world is hostility toward 
                  Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of
                                                  God. (world here is the sinful system)

                  Jesus Christ is the Real Friend Who knows exactly what we need.  We can tell
                  Him all our mind and can pour our feelings anytime.  We can be truly His friend
                                      if we keep His commandments.  He Is The Friend of friends!

I heartily dedicate this blog to my young friends Diana and Medeleine who are celebrating their birthday today.  Their friendship is truly a blessing to me.  I pray to God that she will be a good architect and she becomes a good
                                                                   business manager.  They are both godly!
Remembering also a super mom ofw, ms gha. I pray to God that your 2 daughters will finish their school... hB :D
