There are “friends” who destroy each other, but a real friend sticks closer than a brother. Proverbs 18:24 (NLT)

These days it seems that we use the words friend, best friend, and bestie rather casually. However, good friends do not come a dime a dozen. True friends are different from acquaintances, co-workers, and even cousins. True friends are those whom we have shared some important aspects of our lives. They are those we trust, rely upon,  and let into our lives during the best and worst of times.

Today, I want you to pause and think about yourself as a friend. We often do a good job of judging others. We can easily determine whether someone else falls below our standard of what it means to be a good friend. But how often do we sit in judgment of ourselves? Jesus is the best friend you could ever have. He is truly the plumb line and shows us how to do life with others. Let’s follow His example.

I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you. John 15:15 (NIV)

Loving and praying for you,
Pastor Danielle
