Be devoted to one another in love. Honour one another above yourselves. (Rom. 12:10)
“When days are dark, friends are few”… We all know the cliché. It is, however, totally inappropriate amongst believers. I would rather put it, “Whether days are dark or bright, Christian friends lovingly cares.” The song “Friends” by Michael W. Smith contains the lyrics “A friend’s a friend forever, if the Lord’s the Lord of them; and a friend will not say never, cause the welcome never ends…”
Go read 1 Sam 18:1-4 to see what true friendship looks like. Is there a friend you could reach out to in love today? He/she should not necessarily have to be in a time of need – just let him/her know that you value his/her friendship, that you care and that you’re there for him/her.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, You are the perfect Friend. I want to learn from you how to be devoted in love and to honour others above myself. Please teach me.
