F Is For Friends!

Daily Scripture 5/16/2019
Friendship

Have you ever met someone who you thought was your best friend but as soon as you have a disagreement or it is no longer convenient, they are out of your life for good? Have you ever watched the TV show cops? As soon as the law comes into play both are blaming the other person? I bet cops would be rich if they had a dollar for every time someone said I swear officer that isn’t mine.

In John chapter 15 verse 13 It says Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.So, that should say a lot about your friends and who you hang out with. That is why at a lot of churches you hear them singing the song “What a friend we have in Jesus.”

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.So, that should say a lot about your friends and who you hang out with. That is why at a lot of churches you hear them singing the song “What a friend we have in Jesus.”

“What a friend we have in Jesus all our sins and grieves to bearWhat a privilege to carry everything to God in prayerOh what peace we often forfeit of what needless pain we bearAll because we do not carry everything to God in prayerHave we trials and temptations is there trouble anywhereIf we have don’t be discouraged take it to the Lord in prayer”Jesus is the best friend of all he died for our sins so that we can be redeemed and have eternal life in heaven. If your friends, loved ones, and people you hang out with aren’t willing to die for you, you should rethink your friendships.In Proverbs Chapter 18 verse 2424 A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.

Everyone wants a friend and this has been true for a long time. When I was a kid there was a Tv show called Spongebob Squarepants! If you grew up in the 90’s it was impossible to not hear about this show.
What is this show about?
“SpongeBob SquarePants (Character) SpongeBob is the main character of the TV show with the same name. Description. SpongeBob is a sea sponge that lives in a pineapple with his pet snail Gary, he has two neighbors named Squidward and his best friend Patrick, he likes his job at the Krusty Krab, and going Jellyfishing.”
Why am I bringing up this show? Well in the show there is a character named Plankton and he owns a restaurant called the chum bucket. It is a failing restaurant, he is evil, and he is always trying to steal the crabby paddy formula but fails. There is this amazing episode where even Plankton shows that he needs friendship!

This episode shows friendship!

Proverbs 27:17 – Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.

I work with metal all the time well I’m doing welding but if you heat it up to the right temperature at a certain point you can start to bend the metal and help shape it to and mold it to the right from. The same can be true with a friend if you are there for them to lift them up help encourage them, and bring them joy then the same way you are sharpening Iron you can sharpen a friends mood and lift there spirit. What does countenance mean? “face, visage especially : the face as an indication of mood, emotion, or character The photograph showed his somber countenance. 3 : bearing or expression that offers approval or sanction : moral support
