How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity. Psalm 133: 1
The Bible has something to say about love. John 15:12 says “My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.” John 15:17 says “This is my command: Love each other.”
God given friends share the love of Christ. They lead us in the right direction and never tire of sharing His faithfulness. They strengthen us in time of need and remind us why they care. They help us remember laughter is good for the soul and bless us with a spirit of humbleness.
Joyful friends share the gifts of God’s greatness; fruit of the Spirit that bless our hearts with thankfulness. They listen when we need to share and never judge the tone of conversations. They encourage us when we need to find peace and pray, we will seek the Savior.
“Friends are the family we find along the way.” They pray we will follow Jesus. We all need the support of a loving friend; a treasured confidant with a listening ear and a heart of love for the Lord. We need to remember HOW to care for one another with selfless love and the compassion of Jesus.
We’re all in this world together. Much will be accomplished if we share our burdens, joys, and humbly allow God to connect us with those who will make a difference. How good it will be if God’s people live in unity! “Make new friends and keep the old” are words which speak of truth.
Let’s gratefully thank God for those He places in our lives who lead us in the right direction and pray to be a friend who will let the JOY of Jesus shine. Friends are God given rewards who make our lives meaningful. Truly, they are treasures of the heart.
Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing. 1 Thessalonians 5:11 ESV
Dear God, Thank you for friends. Thank you for JOY which comes from those who share Your love. Teach us how to reach the heart of others, so we will demonstrate the compassion of Christ and be an example of what is good. We’re so grateful for those who shine the light of Jesus and remain faithful to remember how to love one another. Thank you, Lord. Amen
