As the yellow gold is tried in fire, so the faith of friendship mush be seen in adversity.
When I think back on those people that have had the most impact on me, the ones that come to mind first are those who have stood by me through thick and thin; the ones, who know the real me…and love me anyway.
When adversity comes, they don’t tuck tail and run. They suit up and fight alongside. They don’t know what fair weather is because they stand with me despite the inconvenience and messiness of life.
Whether they’re friends or family, husbands or wives, brothers or sisters, mothers or fathers, we all need friendships like this to survive the fires of adversity. And it’s only through trials by fire that our “metal” is strengthened, and our capabilities, faith and courage are tested.
Who stands by you during the fires of adversity?
