“A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.” (Proverbs 18:24)
Today’s Morsel: Do you remember that little old song that says, “Make new friends but keep the old, one is silver and the other gold?” How do we make friends? One of the best ways I know is by showing compassion, and another is by the Golden Rule. Just think, if you made one new friend each day, and that person made one new friend, and each of you shared your new friend with each other, how many friends would you have at the end of a week? Friendship ought to be mutual and reciprocal, just as it was between David and Jonathan. Why are there so many in the church who are friendless? How did we allow the enemy to divide us? Aren’t we supposed to be the family of God? Scripture tells us that in order to have friends we must show ourselves friendly. I guess that old saying is true, “One reason a dog has so many friends; he wags his tail instead of his tongue.”
Sing: I am a friend of God! I am a friend of God! I am a friend of God, He calls me friend.
Thought For Today: Make a new friend today.
