A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for a difficult time. – Proverbs 17:17 (HCSB)
Do you ever find that it’s hard to be a good friend? Yesterday, I was stressed out and tired from the day’s activities and I didn’t want to do anything but go home and go to bed.
However, I had a friend in need. As much as I wanted to ignore this friend, I remembered this Bible verse. A friend loves at all times. A friend doesn’t just love when it’s convenient. A true friend is there, even when it’s hard.
So I set aside my desire for sleep and took a few minutes to listen to my friend. A true friend loves when things are tough and when it isn’t always easy. So challenge yourself today to be there for the people around you and show them the love of Jesus. Challenge yourself to push past what seems comfortable and to really be there for your friends. You’ll be surprised at how good you feel when you do.
