"You look like you lost your best friend." Have you ever heard those words said? What is meant by that saying?
Well, I think that is easy to understand. We all have friends. They are important to us. We know having someone by our side in life makes everything seem better. So when or if we lose our best friend we carry a sense of grief and sadness and also a heaviness in our soul.
God knew we would need friends. We are created to be social, to fellowship.
It is great to have friends to encourage us, share our burdens, spend time with, talk us out of doing stupid things, talk us into doing good things. We need friends.
Thank you, Lord, for giving us our friends. Help us to be a good friend too.
How sweet it is to hear the voice of a friend. I cherish my friends. I recognize the gift that they are to me.The sweet smell of incense can make you feel good, but true friendship is better still. (Proverbs 27:9 CEV)
