A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity. Proverbs 17:17
You heard the old expression “ You find out who your friends are” , when things are going good, when you have lots of money, when your popular, you’ll have lots of “friends” However when things are going bad, when your down on your luck, when your going through a trial or tribulation, where are all these “friends”?
Often people use the word friend very loosely. We like to think we have a lot of friends, but how many of these people will really be there during adversity? As the scripture says “ A friend loves at all times” This is a true friend, that will have your back no matter what. That will be with you through thick and thin. As we all know , these true friends are not easy to find.
So maybe your thinking, wow I don’t really have any true friends, well there is good news. As the old song goes “What a friend we have in Jesus” In the gospel of John, Jesus actually calls us his friends and not only that he says he lays his life down for us! (John 15:13)
Imagine having a friend who would die for you, well you do! Its Christ , however a friendship entails two parties. You need to reach out to Jesus and let him know how your doing. Jesus said “He will never leave or forsake us” (Hebrews 13:5) Oh what a friend we have in Jesus, he gave his life so you can have eternal life Amen!
