Make Friendship a Fine Art

Connecting friendship to Galatians 5:22 -23

I’ve writing a series that brings us to making friendship a fine art.  I have been pondering this one for a few days and it really tugged at my heart. 

I am more of a loner and would say that I’ve never been one to have a large circle of friends.  

I don’t look to fit in or follow the crowd and I'm known for spending the majority of my time with my husband. So, I didn’t really believe this was something I could honestly write about.

Then this afternoon I was pondering friendship and the people that have come and gone in my life. 

Specifically thinking of the ones that stick and why... Then I was reminded of my favorite scripture, Galatians 5:22-23

But the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control: against such things there is no law.

This scripture has been rooted in me for years and I find comfort in these words daily, especially as I write this. I’m going to leave you with that because I believe we should make life a fine art.

Consider opening the New Testament to Galatians and take a deep dive into these wise words. I re read it often and if you have missed earlier posts in this series, they begin here.  

There are just two more left to write and it looks like we'll they'll take us into the new year.
