"The Rewards of Friendships"
Post date: Oct 8, 2015 3:01:42 PM
"Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow; but, woe to him that is alone when he falleth, for he hath not another to help him up."
~ Ecclesiastes 4: 9-10
Think about our friends. One of the Roman Empire's greatest thinkers, Cicero, said, "Friendship improves happiness and abates misery by the doubling of our joy and dividing of our grief." Certainly a life without friends makes our time here lonely and hard to bear.
Of course, to have any friends requires that you be friendly yourself. Be mindful that you must not live in a shall of a life. Allow the Lord Jesus to open up your life so that you can broaden your family of friends. Great is the reward to the one who has friends; and even greater is the person who lives to be a Bible Friend.
A friend is "Trust," A friend is "Warmth,"
A friend is "Always There,"
To add to every Happiness,
To lessen every care."
