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?

There are many people today who’s voices are being lost; people of colour, women, immigrants, the homeless and many more. God loves them as much as He loves you. He created them just like He created you.

As Christians, we have the difficult task to speak up for those who have no voice. There are many ways we can do this and it isn’t always going to be easy. But God goes with us, He will give us the strength we need.

Ask God to show you how you can use your voice to help someone who has lost theirs today.

What is the legacy that you want to leave behind?

Many want to be known for how rich and successful they were, chasing after fame and fortune in this world. It’s a tempting legacy to long for. But for me, the standouts are the people who left this world a little better than it was before them. People who were wise, kind and selfless – who were known for how they loved.

Proverbs 22:1 (http://bit.ly/2lQXAVD) says it’s better to have a good name than all the riches in the world.

Ask God how you can leave this kind of legacy one day.

Proverbs 3:9 (http://bit.ly/2lMXTAP) talks about honouring God with our wealth; a habit we form to put obedience to God before ourselves. Now most of you are students and while some might have part-time jobs, honouring God with your money might seem far off.

But I’d like to challenge you today: what if we understood wealth as anything that we have that can be offered to God? Maybe it’s a wealth of time, or spare clothes you no longer need, or maybe it is even money.

How can you use the wealth that God has given you to honour Him today?
