Today's Scripture: "It is not good to show partiality to the wicked, or to overthrow the righteous in judgment." Pr. 18:5
5646. Friendship is synonymous with good memories. JG
With the holidays and its demands, it became increasingly difficult this year to assemble friends for home church and prayer meetings. In fact, toward the end of the year it was only recovering addicts who were faithful to show up for a weekly meeting and they really had no choice. That's to be expected I suppose because everyone has things they must do and some of my friends have relocated or about to do so.
It's not reasonable to expect things to remain static. Last night many of my friends met for dinner for one last time in 2016. Next year will no doubt see many more scheduling conflicts and changes among the group. Last night however, we were able to update things we've prayed about, celebrate answers and ask for prayer on new matters. Mostly we enjoyed being with friends. Then four of the most crazed among the group drove downtown, bought tickets from a street merchant, and watched the local university basketball team play late into the night. I don't know about you, but I'll do extraordinary things to spend extra time with a friend.
Thank You, Jesus, that by Your example we know how treat friends and enemies.
