July 02 – Friendship-A Matter of Time

“Friendship is really a matter of time-time to be kind, time to listen, time to help-to do a favor, time to show you care. “ those are excerpts from a poem by Amanda Bradley. Yes, friendship is a matter of time to show you really care for another person. And it’s also giving of yourself that means so much to the lonely, discouraged people in your world. Jesus, the best friend that anyone could ever have gave time to those suffering, to the outcasts of His world. Ultimately, He gave His life on the Cross for all who will believe in Him. John wrote in his gospel of Christ’s sacrifice with the words, “ God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. “ No wonder Joseph Scriven was moved to write the beautiful hymn, “What a Friend we Have in Jesus.”
