Ever wonder about that new message on your phone, or your computer.

You have just received a friends request from, whomever.  I stop to think sometimes if we really truly understand the meaning of the term friends. We live in an era with friendships have been changed or moved into categories that sometimes make them more confusing, than algebra.


To me a friend was that person I could share just about anything with. Form the most ridiculous to the most heart warmly sadness.

Today, some define them as, what do I get from being a friend?

I remember in High School, I had some friends. And one spring evening on the way home from church, we stopped in Far Rockaway, NY in front of this McDonalds. Between the four of us standing there had just enough money to buy 1 vanilla shake. So that is what we did. We laughed, smiled had a great time. And enjoyed the that shake like none other in life. Those were my kind of friends.

The Bible tells us in the book of Proverbs:

A friend loves at all times,
and a brother is there a for times of trouble.

Now that is what a friend is to me. So as I ask you the question, ask yourself as well. Who are your real friends?
