IF YOU WANT TO HAVE A TRUE FRIEND, BECOME ONE

 

 

 

 

Dear Friend:

 

I first give honor to my Friend, my Leader, and my Peace.  The number one person in my life; Jesus the Christ.

 

I have learned in this walk of life that so many people put the label of Friend on most everyone they know.  They put their trust and confidence in these people a little too early.  Those that they call friends may be there when everything is going well, but when there is a need in your life, and you need them, they are not there for you.

 

Some may even say that they will be there if you need their help, but when the time comes; these people that you call friends didn’t stand behind their word.  A true friend will be there for you even when they would rather be somewhere else, and they would honor their word. 

 

You meet a lot of people in your life, but a true friend will stick closer than a brother (Proverbs 18:24). 

Proverbs 17:17 (NLT) says:  A friend is always loyal, and a brother is born to help in time of need.

 

When was the last time you thanked God for putting a true friend in your life? When was the last time that you thanked that person for being a true friend and always going out of their way for you?  Don’t ever take a person’s kindness as their weakness, or ever take true friendship for granted. 

 

Don’t ever assume that a true friend knows how much you appreciate them.  Take the time to let that person know how much their true friendship means to you.  At the end of the day, I have learned that if you want a true friend, you have to first become one. True friendship is never one-sided, but both parties much be fully engaged in the relationship to truly have a friendship.

 

Mennie and I thank God for your true friendship and partnership in the work of the Lord through BTBAB.  Every family we assist and minister to, is credited to your account because you continue to be an extension of God’s hand to those that we serve. 

 

Please know that every seed that you sow will come back to you in good measure so that you will continue to be Blessed To Be A Blessing (Luke 6:38).

 

In His Will,

Dr. Joseph Morrison, D.Min
