ROADBLOCKS – BE A GOOD FRIEND (Day 4 of 7)
(Need to start at the beginning? Day 1)

Did you have any struggles yesterday?

The righteous choose their friends carefully, but the way of the wicked leads them astray. Proverbs 12:26 NIV

I asked myself several times, “How healthy is this?” “What part do I play?” and “How can I make this friendship better?”

Time was an issue. You actually have to spend time with others to build a friendship.

Distractions were also huge. I had to be intentional about setting down what I was doing to focus on others.

My biggest concern right now is an unhealthy relationship that I’ve watched develop, and I’m not sure what to do about it. I’ve changed what I do and say, but there’s not a lot of overall change and the fruit of the relationship is … questionable. I’ve reduced the amount of time I spend with them and I’m praying. It hurts my heart.

I think it’s important to note that relationships take two, and there should be a certain amount of healthy give and take. You can make your part healthy and kind. You have influence, but we all make our own choices.
