Thank God For Your Friends
In our hurried world, we can sometimes forget to thank God for those special people He’s placed in our lives. Maybe it’s a friend who’s always there when you need a shoulder or one who seems to make you laugh, even on the darkest of days. Is there a neighbour who makes the time to help when there is a need? Thank Him for allowing your life to be touched by these friends. Thank Him for the important role they each play in your life.
Thank Him for calling you His friend. Ask Him how you can express your gratitude in a unique way to those who positively impact your life. If you’re in need of friendship, thank God in advance for sending someone special your way. Ask Him to remove the barrier that has prevented the gift of authentic, lifelong friendship in your life.
12 My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. 14 You are my friends if you do what I command. 15 I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.
10 Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.
Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labour:
10 If either of them falls down, one can help the other up.
But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up.
