Best Friends

Secret Sauce Strategies

In a transient society where people move often and rarely set deep roots, the value of best friends has changed and so has the definition.

What is your definition of a BEST friend?  According to the “Urban Dictionary”, Best Friends are very special people in your life. They are the first people you think about when you make plans. You will phone them up just to talk about nothing, or the most important things in your life. When you’re sad they will try their hardest to cheer you up. They give the best hugs in the world!

bffTo me, this seems like a very shallow explanation of what SHOULD be one of the most important relationships in your life.  Should “hugs” really be the determining factor a a best friend?  Just because I think of someone in the morning, doesn’t mean they are BEST for my life and future.  In fact, the reason I think of them could be due to a dysfunctional soul tie.

My definition of BEST friends are those people that empower, equip, inspire and challenge you to be your absolute BEST.  They say what you NEED to hear, not what you WANT to hear.  They love deep and forgive often.  But even greater than their closeness is their authenticity to help you fulfill God’s BEST for your life.

Make sure you surround yourself with BEST friends who encourage you to fulfill your God-given potential and never, never give up!
