Messy Friendships



Friendships can be messy because people are messy. Sometimes we have to remind ourselves that our friendships are part of a "package deal."

Not all friendships stand the test of time or the messy stuff! Recently, I went through something really tough with a friend I dearly love, a misunderstanding that was frustrating and hurtful. Part of me wanted to distance myself.

It was really hard to sift through everything. As I talked to God about it, I had to remind myself this person is a package deal. Part of what makes her a great friend is her passion to do things with excellence. But because she’s so task oriented, she’s less relationally sensitive. She has issues, but I have issues.

We’re both messy people. And we’ve just decided we like the package deal of this friendship. It's worth it!

Is there a friendship you need to look at a little differently today?
