Invest in your most important relationships.

“A man of too many friends comes to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.” Proverbs 18:24 (NASB)

You may have many acquaintances that you enjoy talking with, but when it comes to those real, genuine, we-bring-out-the-best-in-each other, and are always-there-for-eachother friendships, you will only have a few.

These days people collect friendships like they collect designer shoes. Each week, they have a new best friend. The moment something doesn’t go their way they’re on to the next friendship. But a quality and lasting relationship is not something you collect like shoes. It’s someone that God brings into your life to help you become all that He created you to be. They may not be a perfect person, but they are a perfect gift from God that you are to care for, invest quality time in and preserve.

Here’s a challenge for you…

Make a list of the five most important relationships in your life, from greatest to least. This can include your spouse, your mother, your grandmother, your sister, your bestfriend, etc. Next, look to see if whether you are investing the majority of your quality time in the relationships that you listed as most important to you.

Maybe you are spending more time with those who live near you because it’s more convenient. But in order for any relationship to thrive and become all that God intended, you must invest quality time and attention to it. In the long-run, you will be much happier if you take the time to invest in the most meaningful relationships in your life.

Prayer: Father God, thank you for Your wisdom. I receive it. Thank You for every relationship You have blessed me with. Help me never take them for granted. Help me bring out the best in the people in my life and help them bring out the best in me. Help these relationships thrive and be all that You purposed for them to be. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
