Photo Friday: Friends Like Sisters



Normally when women get together, their competitive nature kicks in and many ugly things start surfacing. They start sizing each other up and bringing each other down. I'm grateful for all my friends like sisters in this picture. Our love for each other is genuine and is reflected in our actions towards one another. When we are together, I am certain I am surrounded by light, because I'm not among people who gossip and are malicious. Light and darkness don't mix. Who have you been mixing with?

Beautiful Mrs Monti, imagine been mixing with people that they dont even build you up wake......time is flying while you will be sleeping.....that's what i told myself...that my God must put people that i will learn from them, who will build me up and for sure its what he will do when we ask him.

Thank you so much for the message

This is so refreshing to hear. Since the beginning of last year I have been saying I needed to surround myself with different people. I am happy to have come to the church because before that I was looking but in all the wrong places. I feel like I have an opportunity to do this now.

Hi Mrs Moti,

This is so beautiful, not only the picture but what you said. Life will be so much easy if women would be "light", edifying each other. Thank you for refreshing my mind and reminding me what is the true essence of Christ!

Lots of Love.x

I think this is wonderfull to get together with friends who are in the same Faith with you the more we get together the more we get to know each other better and most importantly we grow spiritually . Clara Swartbooi

Hi mrs moti.
So true the friends that God gives you are so amazing, no other friends can compare to them, there's a complete difference between the friends of the world and the friends of God, that was one of my biggest obstacles when it comes to converting, letting go of the friends of the world, but the more I grew spiritually the more I felt drifted away from them, me and them wasn't able to mix anymore, what they believe in go against what I believe in.

Its amazing how people can change other by only discussing a certain topic especially friends of the world, it is better when a person choose friends that you are in the same faith with and understand each other that really solves a lot of problems.

I agree Mrs Moti. Because of this we have to be careful of who we are surrounding ourselves with. And I'm making sure that I am always checking this, even with my friends in the church. But it's nice to be around people that bring out the best in you, and where positivity is.

Hello Mrs Moti from the picture itself I can already tell that you simply get along very well with your friend like sisters and it's so beautiful to see. Nowadays we see the complete opposite different people apparently claiming to be your "friends" are the same ones who are there gossiping about you comparing themselves to you. And it's supposedly seen to be absolutely normal by psychologists they even try to tell us that it's healthy. It's so sad that many actually given in to this however here in this picture is a clear example that it doesn't have to be that way. You all look very beautiful in this picture thanks for being great examples.

This was one of my biggest fears leaving my old friends and thinking that I would never receive others better then them, but when I finally plucked up the courage to get rid of them and trust in God I ended up gaining more then just friends but beautiful sisters from God.

Before I used to be surrounded by a different kind of people that had nothing to do with me at the present time. I started to choose what kind of people I want to relate with, as a result I don't have too many friends but those who are around me I can trust.

This article is so much to the point! I went on a trip with some friends and all they could do was critique about my size (because I was smaller in frame than they were). I felt really puzzled because I felt like if you were truly my friend you wouldnt be critiquing me. Thank goodness I am part of UCKG because I dont have to concern myself with being judged.

Hi Mrs Moti

Thank you for sharing and we should always build our friendships with people who are in the same faith with us so that we may bring glory and honour to our Lord Jesus Christ.
