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's good for the soul and bless us with their kindness.
Faithful friends share the gifts of God’s greatness; fruit of the Spirit that blesses our souls. They listen when we need to share and never judge the conversation. They bless us when we need to find peace and help us seek the Savior.
“Friends are the family we find along the way.” They help us follow Jesus. We all need the support of a loving friend; a treasured confidant with a heart for the Lord. We need to care for one another with the compassion of Christ and be reminded how-to walk-in truth.
Much will be accomplished if we share our burdens, joys, and humbly allow God to connect us. Friends WILL truly make a difference in our lives. They are God given rewards who make life meaningful in many ways. 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 that 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
