GET IN – The Need For Friends

Posted: August 28, 2012 in God's man

Ecclisiastes 4: 9-10 says,  Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: 10If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up! NIV

Isolation is a dilemma facing many men today. Unfortunately, it occurs in the lives of men inside and outside of the church. These men have become so isolated that they have no close friends to turn to when life gets tough.  Today men are turning to liquor, drugs and pornography at an alarming rate to combat their pain and loneliness.

Isolation is not what was originally intended for us, we weren’t created to be alone. Overcoming isolation takes hard work and fighting it is a battle that we must win in order to raise our effectiveness as God’s men.

Check out the book Being God’s Man by Pursuing Friendships, it is our suggested resource for this quarter.
