Be A Friend

"Sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your name…."
Remember that song? It was the opening song for the TV sitcom "Cheers." "Cheers" was set in a bar in Boston. Everyday the regulars came in because "everybody knew their name." They had friends there.
Friends are important to us. Some of our happiest moments are spent with friends. Proverbs 18:24 says, "There is a friend who sticks closer than a brother."
Today, maybe you need to reach out to a friend. Give them a call. Meet them for lunch. Let them know you appreciate them.
But someone may be thinking, "I wish I had a friend." Someone has said the best way to get a friend is to be a friend."
If you know someone who is hurting…lonely…discouraged…
reach out to them, be a friend.
There is a song that goes;
"And friends are friends forever
If the Lord's the Lord of them
And a friend will not say "Never"
Cause the welcome will not end
Though it's hard to let you go
In the Father's hands we know
That a lifetime's not too long
To live as friends."
Today, reach out to a friend and be a friend to someone.
