We are told in the Bible to be a loyal friend, here is the ABC’s of being a friend.
Accepts you as you are.
Believes in "you."
Calls you just to say "Hi."
Doesn’t give up on you.
Envisions the whole of you, even the unfinished parts.
Forgives your mistakes.
Invites you over.
Just wants to "be" with you.
Keeps you close at heart.
Loves you for who you are.
Makes a difference in your life.
Picks you up.
Quiets your fears.
Raises your spirits.
Says nice things about you.
Tells you the truth when you need to hear it.
Walks beside you.
X-plains thing you don’t understand.
Yells when you won’t listen and,
Zaps you back to reality.
A friend is always loyal, and a brother is born to help in time of need.
- Proverbs 17:17 (New Living Translation)
Dear Lord help us be the friend today that somebody needs. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
