“A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for a time of adversity.”
Have you ever been through a tough time, and friends were there to help you through it? I have too.
And like wise have you ever been through something horrible, and even life changing, and there was no one there to help you? Yep, I’ve been there too! I think it depends on what period of our life we are in.
But a friend, a true friend is there regardless of our life circumstances. And you know what? We are to be there for them as well. That’s what friends are for, that’s what friends do.
So be there when you’re needed, even if it does cost some time, maybe some inconvenience. Your friend is worth investing in.
And when this verse mentions a “brother”, this is a about a blood brother. Family is to be and should be there for us, in times of adversity. If that doesn’t happen in our life or if our family is gone now, we should not give up. Pray instead. Perhaps God would send some people to be part of our life as a type of family.
Heavenly Father, we thank you for the people in our lives, both friends and family, that can be a support for us during our times of need. And thank You Our God, that we can be part of their circle of support as well.
And Lord God we lift up to You those that have no one. Please give them the strength they need to make it through their circumstances. And if it is Your will, please give them some good people, give them some good friends, as part of their circle.
We trust in You God. Amen.
