“A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for a time of adversity. As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.”
Proverbs 17:17, 27:17 NIV
It had been a challenging day at work, and I was going home to dogs needing to be fed, gardens needing water, and a host of other chores. Realizing my docket was full with my husband out of town, I cancelled my previous engagement to lower my stress. When there was no response to my notifying my group leader that I would not make the meeting, my mind raced with one guilty feeling after another. That’s when I phoned a friend who would be honest and set me straight. My friend listened to my story and championed me for knowing my limits and for setting aside what is good for what is best. She prayed for me to have peace amidst some troubling circumstances, and she encouraged me to keep pressing ahead.
This friendship did not happen overnight. It was born from sharing our lives honestly and investing time in each other. If you don’t have a friend like this, look for the encouragers who will be straight with you, then be intentional to develop spiritual depth and trust. Sharing a common goal of glorifying God is the very best of all ties that bind.🚦
