“A man of too many friends comes to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.” (Pr 18:23)
Your Instagram followers are your audience, not your friends. Some of them might be both, but they probably aren’t all both. Friends stick close long after the highlight reel fades.
If your sense of self-worth is dependent upon your audience – it will ruin you. Alone in a crowd is still alone. Real friends are those who encourage your faith, stand by you when you fall, and are unafraid to push you to be better. Jesus is your friend. Spend more time with Him and His people and you will be stronger for it.
“No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you.” (John 15:15)
