Friendship

A Friend of God

David Wilkerson (1931-2011)

Consider the way God himself described his relationship with Abraham: “Abraham my friend” (Isaiah 41:8, NKJV). Likewise, the New Testament tells us, “Abraham believed God…and he was called the friend of God” (James 2:23).

Making Relationships Good and Godly

Rachel Chimits

“Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.” —Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy

I dislike this opening line in one of my otherwise favorite books. In reality, dysfunctional human dynamics are far less unique and easier to acquire than happy, healthy ones.

All you need is sin and selfishness. Et voilà, a pain-riddled relationship.
