Years ago there was a plaque with
this slogan inscribed "A friend knows your faults but loves you anyway."
Jesus knows everything about us. He
knows where we've failed. He knows every thought we've had. He knows our weaknesses and
still He Loves us infinitely and eternally. Jesus will never leave us or forsake us.
Jesus never changes. Jesus never fails. He never goes back on His promises. He cannot act
out of character with Himself.
A friend knows exactly when we need
something and when we don't. A friend never gives advice unless they are asked to give it.
A friend wants to ease heartaches and hurt. A friend will laugh and cry with you.
Jesus laid His Life down for us. So
we should be willing to lay our lives down for others; as we are members of Jesus' Body.
Proverbs 18:24 - Some friends
may ruin you, but a real friend will be more loyal than a brother.
John 15:13-15 - The greatest Love a
person can show is to die for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command
you. I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know what his master is
doing. But I call you friends, because I have made known to you everything I heard from my
Prayer: Dear Father help me
to be a friend to everyone who needs a friend. Amen
