Friendship


In order to attract good friends, you have to be a good friend. And I think you learn to be a good friend as soon as you are old enough to maintain and sustain lasting relationships. In the Bible, we are told to model the fruit of the spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness & self control. I think being a good friend requires a similar formula.

You don't become a good friend by accident. And it's impossible to sustain good friendships accidentally. A friendship is a living/breathing entity that must be loved, nurtured and fed. The friendship recipe is a blend of different ingredients all rolled into one. Sometimes one quality will outweigh another, but in the end, they're all there, and they're all important. 

Like Spongebob and Patrick, some friendships may appear odd to the external world, but when you delve into the core of why the friendship thrives, there is usually a good stock or base that gels everything together. In friendship, if you don't have a strong base, the friendship won't taste right. In fact, it could be toxic and make you sick.

If I were writing a recipe for friendship, the following are the key ingredients that I would stir in: compassion, commitment, forgiveness, honesty, humor, love, loyalty, patience, respect, trust and a dash or two of fun & wit to spice things up! No one wants to be friends with someone who's boring! So if you're struggling to make friends or maintain lasting friendship bonds, find out which of these ingredients is missing and add it to your friendship gumbo pot!
