DAILY ENCOURAGEMENT WEDNESDAY – FRIENDSHIP.

A small boy defined a friend as "Someone who knows all about you and likes you just the same." – Source Unknown.

The LORD is the friend of those who obey him and he affirms his covenant with them. - Psa 25:14. GNB

A British publication once offered a prize for the best definition of a friend. Among the thousands of answers received were the following: "One who multiplies joys, divides grief, and whose honesty is inviolable." "One who understands our silence." "A volume of sympathy bound in cloth." "A watch that beats true for all time and never runs down." The winning definition read: "A friend is the one who comes in when the whole world has gone out." - Bits & Pieces.

Around The Corner…
Around the corner I have a friend,

In this great city that has no end.
Yet days go by and weeks rush on,
And before I know it a year is gone,
And I never see my old friend's face;
For life is a swift and terrible race.

He knows I like him just as well
As in the days when I rang his bell
And he rang mine.
We were younger then--
And now we are busy, tired men--
Tired with playing a foolish game;
Tired with trying to make a name.

"Tomorrow," I say, "I will call on Jim,
Just to show that I'm thinking of him."
But tomorrow comes--and tomorrow goes;
And the distance between us grows and grows.

Around the corner!--yet miles away...
"Here's a telegram, sir."
"Jim died today."
And that's what we get--
and deserve in the end--
Around the corner, a vanished friend.
- By Henson Towne.


FRIENDS…
1. When you are with people, be aware of their likes and dislikes.

2. Remember friend's birthdays and anniversaries.
3. Take interest in and cultivate relationships with your friend's children.
4. Become need sensitive
5. Keep in touch by phone.
6. Express what you like about your relationship with another person.
7. Serve your friends in thoughtful, unexpected ways.
- Common Ground.

Loving Father, by the power of the Holy Spirit, help me to be the best friend, my friends have ever had. Lord Jesus, thank you for being my friend as well as my Lord and Saviour. I ask this in your wonderful name. Amen.

Be encouraged!
