Not too long ago my
husband and one of his best friends had a falling out.
After telling me what had
happened, my husband told me to delete his friend's name from the cell phone
I hesitated and told
him he was just angry and not to act too
quickly. He insisted
he would attempt to do it himself if I
didn't, so I did.
I told him, "It's easy
to delete his name from the phone, but be
careful about deleting him from your life. Friends
blessings from God and even though sometimes they disappoint us, we should
realize they are just human."
Remembering back to
the friend that I almost deleted I said,
"What if God deleted
our names from the Book of Life every time we let Him down?
I wouldn't have a chance
because I know I fail to live up to His expectations everyday."
Nothing else was said
but I thought about it for a very long
so often let anger cause us to banish people from our lives for the most trivial
reasons, only to regret it, sometimes after it's too late.
Thankfully my husband and his
friend worked things out and their friendship survived.
What I learned most from the
experience was how grateful I am that I serve a loving God who doesn't delete me
just because I let Him down.
you have a friend you're thinking about deleting, remember this.
could one day be one of life's greatest blessings.
