This is where most people are in our lives…
We work with them…
They are our neighbors…
We like the same teams…
We have the same political opinions…
We even go to church with them.
You’re cordial. You’re polite. You can hold a conversation. You can work together towards a goal…but you definitely aren’t friends.
You don’t enjoy being together.
You don’t have any loyalty towards one another.
You don’t particularly care what they think about you.
You don’t hate them.
You don’t work against one another.
You don’t have any ill will towards them, nor do they to you.
These are the people that we need to learn to disagree with without becoming enemies.
I pray you have at least a few good friends.
I hope you have even fewer enemies.
But, most people you know will be neither.
Proverbs 12:26 (NKJV)
The righteous should choose his friends carefully,
For the way of the wicked leads them astray.
