My very good friend Richard Montez posted this and I wanted to share it as I felt it was a great piece! Richard is founder of Cornerstone Arts that produces Christian theatrical shows worldwide!
1. Faithful – Love you unconditionally. If you get in trouble, they’re there for you. If you have 2-3 in your lifetime, you are a blessed person. Without them, you’ll never be who God has called you to be. They’re lifelong friends, forever.
2. Friendly – They are not into you. They are into what you are for. As long as you are for what they are for, they will walk with you and work with you. This is important to know. If they meet someone else who will help to further their agenda, they will leave you and join them, because they were never for you. Careful, because when you’re broken, you want to confide in them, but remember they’re not for you, but what you are for. As soon as you fall in love with them, they’ll break your heart because they will leave you for someone else. They’re temporary friends, there for a season.
3. Fleeting – These are people who are not for you, nor are they for what you are for. They are simply against what you are against. They’ll team up with you to help fight the greater enemy. Don’t be confused by their association. They’re only with you until the victory is accomplished. They’re like scaffolding. They come into your life for a purpose, and when the purpose is complete, the scaffolding is removed.
Don’t be upset when the Friendly or Fleeting leave you, because they will. They were never really with you in the first place. So be careful then, who you share your dreams with.
God is always faithful. Thank the Lord for the people who are always for you, your Faithful friends.
