Boring. Prudish. Stale.
If you think that’s what it would be like to hang out with a Christian, you’d be wrong. Of course you might find a Christian that is all those things but most are not.
I recently met with a Christian friend who rides a motorcycle, laughs hardily, talks loudly and gives great advice. He was anything but boring. (He even pulled out his iPad 2 and let my son play Angry Birds so we could talk.)
So what’s the big deal? What does a Christian have that someone else doesn’t?
This Christian friend had very valuable advice for me. His perspective was not of “the world.” What I mean is that his advice and counsel was based on something more than just achieving success in this world. It was based on Godly principles.
The Bible is full of people giving helpful advice and perspective to others – Godly people with a Godly perspective. Moses’ father-in-law had some good advice about “team management” during the exodus. Paul confronted Peter when he stopped hanging out with certain people because of what he thought others might think.
Different people will give you different perspectives. Some are about money and that’s the perspective they bring. Others are about getting what they want out of this world.
But a Christian brings a Godly perspective on life with a different “end game.” You’ll find that a Christian friend can make all the difference at just the right time.
