Comments Off on FAMILY & FRIENDS – with KAREN QUAYE

To some, Family is just basically textbook in nature:

  1. a social group made up of parents and their children.
  2.  2 : a group of people who come from the same ancestor.

To others it means more than just what the textbook says:

  1. it means to feel secure, to have someone who you can count on, who shares your problems.
  2. But it also means to have respect for each other and responsibility. Family is a really important word. I think it is a word we use about people we love.

Now let’s get a little bit upclose with each other. Lets deviate from what the textbook says or how someone sees it. WHAT IN YOUR OPINION IS THE TRUE MEANING OF THE TERM “FAMILY”….WHO IN YOUR OPINION IS ‘A FRIEND’?

The Bible gives brings a very interesting perspective to the whole idea of family and what it really means:


“A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother”


Thine own friend, and thy father’s friend, forsake not; neither go into thy brother’s house in the day of thy calamity: for better is a neighbour that is near than a brother far off”

We can infer from these scriptures that some friends can actually become family and may come even into closer union with a person than his or her own siblings may be. That will indirectly also suggest a certain thin line between what we call “FAMILY” and who we may refer to as a “FRIEND”

Via this page we will be exploring the various concepts of FAMILY and FRIENDS, the gift of having either one of the above, the challenges in managing them, the immense benefits of a healthy relationship with them, and the dangers of losing them in this modern era where technology is gradually replacing them.

We will however welcome your views on the concepts of FAMILY AND FRIENDS. You can join the discussion by sending in your views via the links provided below. We will publish them on The Cocktail website if you give approval for us to do so. Let’s get interactive:
