Just a Word: Friend

Look out for this feature every Wednesday!

Friend: just a word.

Friend: someone that you hold in close affection, who freely supports you and helps out of goodwill.

Friend: the person that has a friend is very fortunate. A friend is the person that you can talk to, share your heart with and depend upon in good times and in adversity. A spouse is a friend of the deepest level. Most of us have many acquaintances, but few close friends. That is how it should be. Relationships can be very fragile, but a friend is forgiving, clear and caring.

Friend: Jesus is a friend that sticks closer than a brother. He knows us and supports us. Jesus is the friend that lay down His life for another, for you and me. Hold fast to Him as your friend.

Friend: to be a friend, one must show himself to be friendly. Friendship is not a one-sided relationship. It is multi-faceted and dynamic. A friend brings joy and companionship because of a mutual warm relationship.

Friend: seek friendship. I have had a specific friend since I was 12 years old. For 50 years we have been close; even though distance and life have separated us from time to time, we still pick up as if we saw each other last week. A friend is what we all need.

Friend: value a friend as choice gold.
