A Trusted Friend Is Special

       There is a scene in the movie “Tombstone,” about friends. Doc Holliday is friends with legendary lawman, Wyatt Earp. They have just finished a shoot-out scene. Someone says to Doc Holliday;
      “Doc, why are you doing this?”
        Doc replies; “Wyatt’s my friend.”
        The man says, “I got lots of friends.”
        Doc replies; “I don’t.”
         Because Wyatt was his friend, Doc was willing to risk his life. This is an example of how special friends are.
         Proverbs 18:24 speaks of friends. It says, “There is a friend that sticks closer than a brother.” Think about that…a true friend, a special friend, sticks closer than a brother.
        All of us know people but although we know lots of people, we have only a few close, trusted friends. Jesus said, “Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends” (John 15:13). Someone has said, “A true friend walks in when everyone walks out.”
         Today, be a friend to someone. Reach out to someone. You may have a friend who needs encouraging. Maybe someone needs a phone call. Offer to take someone to lunch.
         There is an old saying, “If you wwnt a friend, be a friend.” Be a friend to someone today.
