FRIENDSHIP: THE REASONS FRIENDSHIPS FLOUNDER. { DAY 12 }

Read- Luke 10:38-42 "But Martha was distracted with much serving. And she went up to him and said, “Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her then to help me.” {Luke 10:40 ESV} It can be like pouring cold water on a glowing fire. It totally extinguishes the burning embers of warmth. That's how our words can woefully change our intimacy with others. We see friendships falter or drift, while we are left wondering why.....not even recognizing it is because of us. When I read about Mary and Martha, I see several tendencies that come all too naturally to some of us. With the best of intentions, we can come across too harshly in relationships, causing spirits to wilt beneath the weight of our words. Each sentence can inflict a precision cut, as our tongue becomes our unintended weapon. As we look closer at the scene, Martha is busy hosting Jesus and His disciples, which is very admirable. She has opened her home to them, exercising hospitality. Her intent is to bless others. What happens though is a different story.....

FRIENDSHIP: THE THIEF WE INVITE IN { DAY 6 }

Loss has a way of draining all that's positive out of life, tempting us with an unbalanced viewpoint. When we are living with disappointment from unmet expectations, the "good" we have can be overshadowed by the loss we are living with. What we have becomes invisible and undervalued, compared to what we want.

ESTHER: CELEBRATING FOR ALL IT’S WORTH. { DAY 12 }

Relief. Just the word conjures up powerful memories for many of us where God has come to our rescue as we thought we could not make it one more day, one more moment. "Relief" usually coincides with a tidal wave of emotion.
