CATEGORIES OF FRIENDS WITH BIBLICAL EXPLANATION

Categories of friends we do keep have a positive effect and negative effect on our lives. Making contact with the right person is the most important thing that matters in our social life, because in the time of need we run to friends for help.

Most times, we get abandoned by our friends, leaving us nothing but emptiness in our hearts. No matter what you do for some categories of friends, they still leave you without saying goodbye.

In identifying the category of friends, we must take a look at the life of Samson and Delilah. The little fake love life between Samson and Delilah, gives us a clearer path to follow in choosing our friends.

Samson’s parents had known the secret of Samson’s strength since his birth, yet they told no one (judges 13:5).

The day Delilah heard of it, she told Samson’s enemies and brought Samson down to ordinary (Judges 16:17, 18).

Three essential lessons on the life of Samson:

  • Everyone qualifies for your life, but not all the people you love qualify to know the secrets of your life!!! Because, some people cannot handle it, and others cannot wait to trade your secret for their personal gain.
  • The enemy that will destroy you, will not come with a sword but with a smile!!!
  • Learning to keep your friend’s secrets is not only about trust, but destinies are at stake.

Nothing can be more dangerous and painful than to share your secrets with your enemy thinking they are your friends.

Three categories of friends:

  • Confidants: They will talk with you no matter how hard it gets. These categories of friends, would be with you no matter how hard things get to be in the future. You need to be grateful if you have one.
  • Associates: They team up with you to achieve a common goal. Most of the time, they compete for the same prize/goals with you.

Be very careful with these category of friends, they may push you down in order to win the golden prize.

  • Comrades: They team up with you just to fight a common enemy. They will be gone once the enemy is defeated.

Therefore, you should not be worried when they leave; they were there for a season (for the time being). No matter the sacrifice you make for them, it cannot seem to be enough for them. Read More …
