The Joy of Friendship

Have you had your Joy Juice today?  It tastes especially sweet when you share it with friends!

            Do you realize what a gift we have in friendship?! Friends are God’s joyful blessings to help us in tough times and celebrate with us in the good times.  Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 says: “Two are better than one, because they have 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!”

            This verse emphasizes how we need one another!  Two are better than one!!!!  Do you surround yourself with friends or do you prefer to be alone?  PLEASE include your friends in your daily life.  You miss out on so much when you don’t!

            Friends provide support, laughter, encouragement and companionship. They are there to share your tears, to pick you up when you’re down and to pray for your needs and desires. But the key to having friends is that you must first be one yourself.  Make the effort to reach out to people…don’t wait for them to come to you.  “Show yourself friendly” as Proverbs 18:24 teaches. When we do, we will find the blessing of friendship to be one of our greatest pleasures. Good friends will be there when we “fall” to help us up and encourage us.

            Let’s remember that our BEST friend should always be Jesus!  Thank Him for Christian friends who will encourage you to seek the JOY of the Lord every day!

            Be a friend by sharing the joy of the Lord with others.
