“The older I get the more selective I am of who is in my Tribe. I would rather have four quarters than a hundred pennies!”
The power of the word “tribe” means of the same stock, overall group. Some take this to have a racists overtone, but this doesn’t apply to color for Christians. Our “tribe” is made of all colors who have the same creator and more selectively each member has the same intrinsic value in Jesus Christ. A quarter has more intrinsic worth than a penny.
This rubs Facebook aficionado’s wrong being that people who brag, “I have 25000 friends” are kidding themselves. The truth is you have 25000 names, very few of which will meet the definition of a friend who loves at all times.
The Bible gives several great ideas about friends.
1Peter uses Royal, chosen, special, people of God.
Makes sense to marry & choose friends primarily from the Chosen ones.
