On Finding Friends

I went out to find a friend

but could not find one there;

I went out to be a friend

and friends were everywhere.

Dale Carnegie in How to Win Friends & Influence People:

“You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people, than you can in two years by trying to get other people interested in you.”

The path to great relationships is to love others in obedience to God. To focus on the needs of others & not your own.

“A friend loves at all times…” Proverbs 17:17
