College was one of the best experiences of my life. I loved every minute. One of the reasons I enjoyed college so much was because I always had friends around me. It was easy to spend time with those I cared about.
Is this true for you too?
Do you sometimes find it difficult to make time for your friends?
I’ve learned that it’s important to be creative with my schedule to allow time to spend with friends, doing things like:
- quick lunches on my lunch break
- coffee after Elias has gone to bed
- a bible study every other Monday night
- play dates (the kids play and we catch up!)
It’s also important to connect with friends who live far away. Some of the ways I do that are through:
- phone calls
- letters (there’s nothing like receiving a card in the mail)
- text messages
- Facebook messages
I think sometimes we become so wrapped up in our work and and home lives that we don’t allow time for friendship.
But friendship is incredibly important.
Throughout the Bible, we see the value of friendship. Jesus did his most important work surrounded by friends.
So even when life gets busy, let’s be sure to take time for our friends. Not only will it bless our lives, but it will bless the lives of our friends as well.
How do you make time for your friends?
