Times are so different now than when my husband and I were young. In the early years of our marriage, my husband and I spent a good deal of time with other young couples who were military as we were. Those were “the good old days” as we like to call them. Those friends enjoyed a lot of the same activities as we did (games, food, and fun) and had similar values, who we trusted enough to share some of our marital challenges. The guys would get to themselves and talk as did the ladies. We soon discovered we had some of the same issues which really helped us because we saw the situation as not so challenging because someone else was experiencing it as well.
It’s good to fellowship (spend time with others) as not to be alone or possibly become isolated in your relationship with one another. But! Be very sure that those friends are true friends before you share too much!
Our Christian walk needs that same kind of fellowship and care. We all need friends at one time or another, so be a friend!
Proverbs 8:24. “A man that hath friends must show himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother”.
