'A friend loves at all times.' Proverbs 17;17
Friendships are a true gift from God, especially when we use our influence with each other to glorify Him. Each friend has a special quality that encourages us in our daily walk. 'A friend gives us the total freedom to be ourselves.'
As much as Snoopy or any other dog thinks they are man's best friend, there is only one 'perfect friend' that can and does meet all our needs. God is full of advice, always ready to listen, available to lean on, will never leave your side, loves you, holds your hand with a smile, and is awaiting the time for you to be together.
You have to be a friend to have friends. I want my friends to know the Friend that will not fail them because I and other friends will fall short at times. There is the One who we can turn to 24/7 and be lifted up from any trouble we encounter. He is like the stars, we can't always see them but they are always there.
