When was the last time you pointed a friend to Jesus? How often do you do that? Is encouragement and edification on the top of your list when you get together with your friends? Or is it just a big he said/she said gabfest? I remember feeling so discouraged for the umpteenth time after getting together with friends years ago. It was just a lot of empty discussion. I tried to point them to Jesus, but it never ‘stuck’. I would return home with a void that screamed to be filled with wholesome talk and Godly inspiration. Why is it so difficult to find friends who cheer you on in your faith? I don’t know the answer to that.
However, I do know that I can continue to be proactive in nurturing and cultivating such an environment. That’s what I plan to do (are you with me?). That’s the reason for this week’s feature. I love Timberley’s post, The Danger of Girl Talk. She doesn’t simply explain why gossip is wrong. She offers a practical way to change it. Head on over to her post and read it. Be sure to leave her an encouraging comment!
