When is it appropriate to end a friendship?

You should let the Spirit guide you when you begin a friendship as well as when you end it.

The basis for a close friendship should always be common faith and beliefs. A friendship will thrive when both parties are on the same life path.

When the path begins to go in different directions regarding things of faith, it may be time to seek close friendship with others. Again, this is a matter between you and the Spirit inside you. Seek His guidance.

Of course, we don’t ever abandon friends unless the relationship has become detrimental to our own well-being. We never give up on friends who may be headed down a destructive path. We continue to pray for friends in faith and love. And we should always walk in forgiveness toward our friends.

Give the Spirit of God opportunity to guide you in the selection of friends. Whether they are forever friends or for-a-time friends, with the Spirit as your guide, you can know He has placed them in your life for a reason…and that reason is to give them the love of God!
