the importance of a good friend
Thursday, June 02, 2011
recent events in my life have helped me to realize the importance of having good friends. both here on spark and in my personal life, i have very good friends that really encourage me when it counts. it's easy to take that for granted when life is moving along smoothly. it's only when life gets hard that we can see the precious blessing of a good friend. also, during these times i have to ask myself if i am a good friend to others. this is an area that i can improve on. so, you may ask; what makes a good friend? i believe that it is a person who, when they see you struggling; will help in anyway they are able, and is there to listen when you need someone to talk to. they're not afraid of your tears, and they can handle it when you are frustrated. the most important friend in my life is Jesus Christ, He is the only one who can be all these things. i also have some very good friends who have proven themselves in the hard times of my life. all in all i really am very blessed, and it's good to remind myself. what about you? first, can you say that Jesus is your ultimate friend? He died for you, and took your punishment for your sins, so that you could live with Him forever in the place He has prepared just you you: heaven! all you have to do is turn away from your sins and accept His offer of friendship. also, do you have those in your life who you know are there for you in the hard times? if so i would love to here about them.
