8/11/15: So Good to Have a Friend
It is wonderful to have a good friend. At least one. And many of us have more than one. My sister-friends are just a phone call away when I have great news to share and when I am having troubles. I can laugh with them, cry with them, complain to them, and ponder the mysteries of the universe with them. Whatever it is, they understand.
Especially when I’m having hard times, my friends are wonderful examples to me of the love of the Lord. Psalm 94:19 says, “In the multitude of my anxieties within me, Your comforts delight my soul” (NKJ). God comforts me best, and He’s given me friends who are there for me as well. The Scriptures also say, “A man who has friends must himself be friendly” Proverbs 18:24 (NKJ). I just hope I’m as good a friend to them as they are to me.
