Time for Friendship

 

Good morning  friends. God’s glory is ever present this morning. Why, because if you’re reading this you were blessed with another day and another chance to love God even more. One thing is sure-there is a discrepancy between the “me that God wants me to be and the “me” that I am.

We really can’t make more time. There are only 24 hours in a day, and no matter how frantically we try it’s impossible to stretch those 24hours into 25. So our problem isn’t how to use our daily allotment of those 1,440 minutes, 86,000 as they steadily tick away. Stop then, and think about this vital issue. Apart from eating, sleeping, doing necessary tasks, and working at your jobs that bring you income. How are we spending that precious commodity we call time?  Whatever else we are doing, are we giving to time to relationships?

There are not many things that are more conducive to our well-being than investing in friendships. Research shows that ignoring friendship not only diminishes your quality of life but could also be a health hazard. Friendships can reduce the risk of illness. Believe it or not, it can. If investing time in strengthening our friendships is so essential to our well-being, what about our relationship with Jesus? He said to His disciples “No longer do I call you servants but I call you friends.

If you have trusted Him as Savior, are you devoting time to deepen your relationship with the best of all friends? Time is a friend when you use it to strengthen your friendship with Jesus.

“This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. You are My friends if you do whatever I command you.   No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you. You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you. These things I command you, that you love one another.” John 15:12-17

“A friend loves at all times.” Proverbs 17:17

Live life, give people hope and share your heart, wisdom, and resources. Never place a period where God says there should be a comma.

As always peace and blessings, be safe. Take advantage of your opportunities but never allow your opportunities to take advantage of you. Remember God loves you and so do I. ©krw 5.4.16
