Now, however, she is branching out into recording the first of (what will hopefully be many – that’s up to the feedback she gets from you!) her solo podcasts to talk on the topic of “Navigating Difficult Friendships”.

What She Chats about in Today’s Episode:

~A bit of Rebekah’s own experience with difficult friendships

~How friendship is messy as a result of our living in a fallen world; why this should not come as a surprise

~5 red flag warning signs to watch out for in your friendships:

  • Friends who ignore your boundaries (Proverbs 25:17)
  • Friends who are emotionally insensitive (Proverbs 25:20, 27:14, )
  • Friends who betray confidences (Proverbs 11:9)
  • Friends who are given to backbiting (Proverbs 1:28)
  • Friends who are commonly given to belittling people (Proverbs 11:12)

~The friendship example Jesus is for us

~The difference between being a backbiting friend and being a Biblical friend that is as iron that sharpens iron

~How to deal with friends who are operating out of one or more of the above five red flags

~The problem with the “good little Christian girl” syndrome

~Turning the other cheek vs. exercising boundaries

~The Matthew 18 Method (Matthew 18:15-17)

  • Point out the problem (Matthew 18:15)
  • If necessary:
  • Bring witnesses (Matthew 18:16)
  • Erect Boundaries (Matthew 18:17)
