Closer Than a Brother

Some friends may ruin you, but a real friend will be more loyal than a brother. Proverbs 18:24 (NCV)

God created us for relationships.  He created us to journey through life together.  A real friend will want what is best for you.  They will encourage you to go farther than you think you could.  They will support you as you follow God’s plan for your life.  They will challenge you if it appears that you aren’t making the best choices.  A real friend will be there through the good and bad times.  They will stick closer than a brother.

Prayer: God, thank you for creating me for relationship.  Show me the real friends I have in my life.  Help me to be a real friend to others.  In Jesus’ name,  Amen.
