Morning all! Prov 18.1 says “Unfriendly people care only about themselves; they lash out at common sense.”
As Christians, we’re called to be friendly and although we all know this in theory, it’s not always our daily reality. We’re supposed to be beacons of light amongst family, friends, colleagues and strangers – even when we’re tired or it requires more effort than we care to summon. This verse reminds us that being friendly is often an act of selflessness, where we consider other people’s feelings above our own. The fast pace of everyday life means we can feel ‘too busy’ to be intentionally attentive to those we don’t perceive as our friends. Yet, making time for those we ordinarily wouldn’t is essential in reflecting Christ. Praying and reading the Bible aren’t the only characteristics that make us different from most of society. Let’s work on smiling at, speaking to and taking a genuine interest in those that come our way in the various contexts we find ourselves. Let’s be the Bible those around us read and determine to be decidedly friendly to those we could easily ignore. God will give us grace!

Sooo today marks the 6-month ‘birthday’ of TWW! Woop Woop!
