“A friend loves at all times, and kinsfolk are born to share adversity.”
Proverbs 17:17 (NRSV)
Prodigal Thoughts: Wise words from King Solomon. A true friend is there through it all. I’m sure we all have had our fill of people that we thought were our friends, but when we needed a true friend, they were nowhere to be found. Perhaps we have been that friend before as well. Thankfully, there is grace for all. We can be the type of friend that we all need, not confusing being a friend with just being friendly.
Prayer for today: I pray that we would be the friend that is mentioned in Proverbs 18:24, that “sticks closer than a brother/sister.” That we would take on the heart of Christ for our friends and for those outside of our circle of friends. I pray that we would do all we can to encourage each other each and every day and spur one another on in our relationships with Christ.
If you need prayer, please reply and I will pray for you. If you would like to talk about this verse or have questions, I’m always open for your feedback.
May the heart and mind of Christ be forefront in our hearts and minds…
