This is a question I have been asking myself for several weeks.
I mean if you could put a dollar amount on it?

I have had this issue facing me for the last few weeks.

I have a dear friend that owes me a substantial amount of money for work I have done for him and thru no fault of his own things have turned south for him in several random acts that I know was beyond his control. Now I love this guy dearly and we have been friends for almost 20 years. One of my best friends.

Tonight I had a conversation with him and wiped the slate clean.
I feel a ton better and I hope he does as well.

So I ask what is friendship worth?

Money is such a materialistic item. I mean yeah I would love to have a bunch of it and especially right now considering I was down to little the last few days!! lol

To put some perspective on it. The actual amount I wrote off today to help my friend was

$20,000

Yes i said twenty thousand dollars.

Yes he is still one of my best friend and I think if it had been 100k. I would have felt the same.

I hope it never comes up again and I pray it gives us both restful peace in our relationship.

Just thought I would share.


And your motivation for posting this is what???


My motivation was to say money is not worth friendship in my eyes.

You are a blessed man to have such understanding under such a circumstance..I imagine our fathers from the pioneer days would scratch their heads and shrug the money off and say "come help me chop firewood and we'll call it even"..LOL! God bless ya.
AND thanks for posting/sharing this!!

You do it to please Jesus, not yourself. When you do this, your heart is filled and your life is at peace.


It is all about focusing on eternal things over temporal things.

I cant speak for him but I would guess so that others may learn and be inspired by his generous act. If one person grows positively from hearing this then it is a win. I know I for one am touched by his kindness and it makes me look at my own life and possible actions with a more critical eye. Try finding the good in the outcome of things and the world becomes a lot less dark.

Seems a little too similar to this scripture - especially when you mention how muuuuuuuuch money is involved.

Just a little too much "look at me!"

Just saying...
