A Special Friendship

Proverbs 18:24 ‘Friends come and friends go, but a true friend sticks by you like family.’ Friends are so influential! If you stop for a minute and think about all the significant friendships throughout your life, you’ll be able to see very clearly how those relationships affected what you did at certain times and maybe even who you are today. A good friend builds you up – calls you to life, encourages and supports unconditionally. I have enjoyed a holiday in Australia and was blessed by the friends on this trip as we rekindled our long-standing relationship. As we think about our Christmas preparations, Isaiah gave us a special message about Jesus who would be born into our world, and who would take the time to offer us a friendship that is very special. Isaiah 9:6b ‘He will be called Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.’ Amen.
