Did you know we can show our relationship with Jesus in our friendships?
DC Talk sang a great song ‘Lean on me’. The lyrics speak of leaning on each other for support in hard times.

Friends – who can you lean on?
Can others lean and rely on you?
Reflect on Proverbs 17:17 (http://bit.ly/2OjRgTL).

Some translations have “A friend loves at all times”, whereas another I’ve seen says “A true friend is always loyal”. Our brothers and sisters in Christ, as well as our friends who don’t yet know Jesus, need love and loyalty.

Is there someone you know that needs YOU as a friend?

@CIA

Have a Twitter account? Who do you follow most closely? How many people follow you?

Believe it or not, the Central Intelligence Agency joined Twitter yesterday. Yip, you heard me, the US of A’s main spies just joined Twitter (http://bit.ly/1uAOae5) with the following tag: “We can neither confirm nor deny that this is our first tweet. In response Husain Haqqani tweeted, The CIA has followed people for years, now tweeple (sic) have a chance to follow @CIA.

Who are you following and who is following you (and not just on Twitter)? Paul wrote, Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ. (1 Corinthians 11:1 N.I.V.)

God of all comfort

,

God, sometimes it is hard to know how to support the people around me. Like when difficult stuff happens to my friends or family, what do I say? I know that you are the God of all comfort, but what am I supposed to do? Or, if someone is really happy and I’m not feeling the same way, then what do I do?

The Bible says that I should rejoice with those who rejoice and weep with those who weep (Romans 12v15). Help me to trust you enough that you can handle my feelings, so I can be sympathetic with others, no matter what space they’re in – happy or sad.
