Friendship

It\'s Complicated: A Series on Relationships

Making friends always seemed easier earlier in life. But what happens post-college? It just seems so much more complicated. It's the reason John Mulaney said, "The greatest miracle Jesus ever performed was having 12 close friends in his 30s." Too often we allow the responsibilities and seriousness of life to distract us from prioritizing friendship. But friendship is an incredible gift that God has given humanity to navigate this life. And only friendship can shape us into who God intended us to be.

This is especially true after the last year and a half we’re still all recovering from! But the truth is every relationship in your life is a gift from God, given to you to make you (and others) more like him: to desire him more deeply, to fix your mind on him with greater tenacity, and to pursue godliness with your whole heart. In fact, they’re so important that when God surveyed his creation, he said everything was good, except the fact that humanity was alone.
