The New Testament records several stories of close friends. The one that really stands out for me is the story of Paul and Barnabas. Two guys sharing the good news. When Paul struggles, Barnabas is there to vouch for him, to stand up to those who question his motivations. He is there for him. Do you have a friend that is always there for you? If you do...be sure to thank them. Thank them often. Friends are a true blessing.
And if your friend needs you, be there for them. No matter what you have planned and the busy day ahead, stop and be a friend.
