Calling All Men—The Gift of Friends

Friends are a gift from the Lord. You should cultivate friendships with other men, especially other Christian men who will encourage you in your faith and give good advice. The Bible says, “As iron sharpens iron, so a man sharpens the countenance of his friend” (Proverbs 27:17).

Are you friends with men who are a positive influence on your life, who encourage and build you up in the faith? And are you making the effort to grow spiritually so you, in turn, can be that kind of friend to others?

If you are in need of such friends, ask God to lead you to the right people. And be willing to take time to be a friend to other men who would benefit from your wisdom and experience.

Lord, help me to build replenishing friendships with other men. Whom can I look to as an example? Whom can I encourage? Thank You for my friends! Amen.
