Jesus – Others – You

Many Friends or Best Friend?

When I was a child, I was very shy. Oh, I had friends but never a best friend-someone who wanted to exclusively

hang around with me. That seemed to be my lot in life; even now I have lots of friends but not a best friend. Some

of my friends I am closer to than others, but not just one friend I am buddy-buddy with. As a kid, that really

bothered me, but I began to realize that wasn’t a crucial issue. Especially after May 19, 1963-that’s the day I asked

Jesus into my heart. That’s the day I realized that I DID have a Best Friend: someone who loved me more than

anything or anyone else in my life, someone who loved me enough to die for me on Calvary, someone who

continues to walk with me through thick and thin, who blesses me with talents, gifts and many friends even today.


Of all the things I collect, I am truly grateful for my collection of friends. And I am thankful that I have Jesus as my

Best Friend.

Do you have a best friend? Better yet, do you have THE Best Friend? If not, He is only a prayer away; just ask Him in.


This is my commandment, that you love one another, just as I have loved you. “Greater love has no man than this, that one lay down his life for his friends.  John 15:13

A man of too many friends comes to ruins, But there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.  Proverbs 18:24
