I'm a bad friend.
I'm not good at visiting, calling and remembering birthdays and special days. I get too caught up in my own world and my never-ending to-do list. However, I'm very forgiving towards my friends if I feel neglected because I know how life is.
I think a true friendship is when you can pick up where you left off at anytime knowing you are always there for each other when hard times come. My friends know I will pray for them; and, I know that if I'm going through a struggle I can ask them for prayer as well.
What's really great is if you can attend a church where you've made friends. My church friends are so easy to keep up with because I see them 2-3 times a week. If something happens to them, we have an email prayer chain where immediately every one knows the trial we are going through and can pray right then.
I know there is no substitute for encounters in the flesh: but, in today's world, we are just an email, text, phone call or facebook post away from our friends. I want to make more of an effort to keep in touch.
