Being just friends with the opposite gender does not happen on accident. We have to fight for our friendships and guard them. We are all aware that like magnets men and women are attracted to each other. My belief is that we were designed that way. However, until we are ready to be "Friends for Life" (If you know what I mean) we should at all costs avoid premature intimacy. But how do we do this? Be accepting the limits of guy-girl friendships.
"Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord." Romans 12:10-11
What is our relationship to each other? We are brothers and sisters in Christ. We should treat each other with honor and respect. Whats the secret to our Zeal and devotion? Service - side by side for God's glory. Being guided by this choice of attitude, being just friends can be just plain awesome!
