There are three types of friends in Matt’s circle who have helped him grow both spiritually and professionally: a Friend of Truth, a Friend of Knowledge, and a Friend of Encouragement. Each of these individuals has played a specific role, enabling Matt to live out his faith and career to its fullest.
The bible reinforces the importance of friends who lead us towards excellence. Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 says, “Two are better than one because they have a good return for their labor. For if wither of them falls, the one will lift up his companion. But woe to the one who falls when there is not another to lift him up.”
This week we will discuss three types of friends we need in our circle of influence that promote growth and excellence.
