I'm confuse on how "the world react" to "being a friend" or "being true friend". Most people are friendly with strangers specially if the person is completely handsome or sexy in other words physically attractive. Would you consider that as a friend?
I learned from attending the Bible study, someone said "you must know your friend first, to be a friend", in short know the person first... hmmm I thought "sounds like in the world today I can only have few friends" since I can sense right away if the person has a good or bad motives, and I can feel in terms of knowing the good or bad aura in a person. Never do I want to act like judgemental, but even if I give a certain person "the benefit of the doubt" still ends up "my senses are right".
In my interactions these days, if I sense something negative in the person's aura, I tend to be aloof, as the saying goes "prevention is better than cure", but if that person talk to me in a nice way, of course I will answer nicely. Still seldom will you see me to be the first one to drop a chat. Unlike before, I'm friendly, I don't care much even if I sense the negative side of the person in short "I had so many friends but who secretly hates me"... Is it
"Discouragement, Jealous, or envy"? the tool Satan use to those kind of people around me?
I can never say but all I know "hurt" is what I felt. Anyway, "those days" the past are completely healed and gone.
I watched the DVD movie Clique, there was this line of question "Would you have: a.) lots of friends who secretly hates you. Or b.) A friendless looser?
One thing I absolutely learned from experience "being friendless" or "with very few friends" doesn't mean you're "being a looser", all we need is to have a good relationship with our Lord God and everything will follow in "a good way" and not the other way around. Thoughts, thinking, and what we entertain in our brain are very important as we can never keep anything from God and it will show through the words we use, specially in expressions, "The tag line", as much as possible I don't use any, still I slip my tongue once in awhile but, am aware it is slowly dying in my habits.
Imagine being with people who secretly hates you, waiting for your every little mistake that they can emphasize and create a "tag line" to talk about and make fun with, in short "Blasphemy", the world wants it so bad that entertainment news never runs out of fans.
