Be a friend others want!
Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up!
Dear Father God,
Thank You for the family and friends that You bring into our lives. Thank You for teaching us how important fellowship and friendships are in Your world.
Please help each of us always have someone to help us when we fall down. Teach us to be a friend to others, to not take offenses easily and to love each other generously.
Thank You for showing us we are never without You in our lives.
Your Word is our daily guide and Your Son Jesus is our Light. We lift up those who are heavy on our hearts today and we ask that You place people in our path who need to see Jesus. And give us a discernment to know who You are placing before us and give us the words to speak to show Your love.
We thank You and praise You for all things. It is in Christ Jesus’ name we pray.
Today’s Transformation Tip
Listen to advice and accept instruction, and in the end you will be wise.
The best friends to have are those who are grounded in the Word of God. We should cherish those friends who will give godly advice and instruction. It’s important that we get rid of all pride that may be hidden in our hearts so that we can hear and accept wise instruction.
Our world has become so focused on self that we often throw friends away if they challenge us with truth that we may not want to hear. But God calls us to a higher standard. We are part of His world which is a world where we are accountable for our words and our actions.
Be a friend who helps others grow in their relationship with Jesus.
Be a friend who encourages others to be the person God created them to be. Be a friend who is not content to sit by and watch others make bad decisions that will lead to heartache. But most importantly, do NOT be a friend who condemns.
Be a friend who shares what Jesus Christ has done for all of mankind with love and grace.
Through your own living and witness, be a friend that others want to have in their lives. Make a difference and work with God to transform the lives of those around you today.
Stay in the Light and Love always,
