It wasn’t until I had a husband.
And then a son.That I realized how powerful the role of friendship plays in a man’s life.
It sounds funny now, but I thought only girls needed friends. I knew that one first-hand.What I didn’t know was that that guys needed them too. In fact, friendship can be a critical component in a young man’s life.
So what does friendship look like for him? In many ways, much the same as it does for her. As it does for me.
Here are some qualities that go into building strong, solid friendships for him:
While there are plenty of verses in the Bible cautioning us about the harm of falling into bad company, the reverse is also true. There is significant blessing in choosing godly, sharpening friends as well. As parents, we want to help our sons see the value of forming strong, solid friendships.
How do you see the role of friendship in your son’s life? What else would you add to this list?
In His grace, by
