In good friendships, status disappears. It doesn’t matter where you come from or what you do – or don’t do – for a living. You simply connect. Jesus told his disciples that their relationships should be based on service, not status. When we enter into a relationship with a servant attitude, we’ve taken the first step toward establishing a great friendship.
1. Evaluate your friendships. Are most based on “What’s in it for me?” or are you leaning toward “We would do anything for each other?”
2. For you, what does a servant-based relationship look like? Think of some examples.
Challenge: Consider your best friend. How can you show appreciation for their friendship by serving them? As you put your idea into action, tell them how much you value their friendship.
