The last few months have redefined epic adventure in my dictionary. From travel hacking Italy with a colleague to a surprise engagement trip in the mountains of North Carolina, I’ve been overwhelmed with God’s blessings and the people He’s placed in my life.
However, there’s a difference between amazing people and iron-sharpening people. I’m grateful mine qualify as both, but as we’re choosing friends to do life with, we should consider some important questions.
Do they point you to Christ?
There are plenty of people in this world who model ingenuity, bravery, kindness, and adventure. From the world’s standpoint, they personify the ideal. These charismatic people attract a crowd, and although they can be generous and inspirational, they’re missing the main thing.
Without a personal relationship with God, a person with everything the world has to offer has nothing of lasting worth.
Do the people in your tribe encourage you to have a closer walk with God? Do they keep you accountable and ask you to do the same for them? Beyond that, do they pray for you and with you (James 5:16)?
We need to surround ourselves with Spirit-filled friends who strengthen our faith and won’t let us settle for status quo.
