Best Friends

Thursday, February 20, 2014

Do you have a best friend? I hope you do. My best friend moved away several years ago and I cherish any time we can get together. What makes a best friend? Proverbs 17:17a says, “A friend loves at all times,”.  This is a person who will stand with you in good times as well as bad and really loves you. A person you can tell your biggest dreams, your craziest desires and your deepest sorrows.  James reminds us that Abraham was called a friend of God and that God’s righteous was credited to him. (James 2:23). Do you love God and know him as your friend? Do you love the things he loves?
As much as I love my best friend, that love and friendship pales in comparison to my love and friendship with God. He promises to be with me 24/7, comfort, guide, protect, and save me. What a wonder. I hope you can enjoy the company of your earthly best friend soon and remember it is but a tiny fraction of a friendship with Almighty God.
Have a great day! Linda
