I honestly can’t remember the last time I looked at the stat counter on my website. I stopped keeping track of numbers on any social media or any of my blogs a long time ago…not because I’m “so popular I don’t have to look at the numbers.” But because God has helped me not to focus on it at all. It doesn’t matter whether I’m talking with one person or fifty or five thousand…the stuff He inspires me to write or encourage others with is the same.
But sometimes I do wonder what lands people on my blog. When I looked at the main keyword search on almost every page, “friendship” topped the list in some way, shape or form. Isn’t that interesting?
I guess at the end of the day that’s because we all want it. God built it in us to need that connection. It’s one of the topics I speak on and celebrate…but even more specific, I’ve noticed that parents & grandparents want to teach their young’uns about how to choose good friends and be a good friend.
That’s why I think the devotional God laid out for me to write many years ago is still in the largest demand today, at least as it pertains to what I’ve written. Every time I read through it, (other than finding things I’d like to re-word or improve upon), I’m reminded of something God wants to teach me about being the kind of friend I should be…and the kind of friend I should be reminding my teens they should be.
So if you are looking for a devotional to do with your elementary-aged child this summer, consider this. It’s free, and it’s set up in such a way that you can be involved in the process of guiding them in truth and wisdom. I hope and pray it ministers to every one who reads it. You can find it & print it here:
There are “friends” who destroy each other,
but a real friend sticks closer than a brother.
Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble.
