A friend loves at all times (Proverbs 17:17).
They’ve been there. You are having a problem or even a crisis. They are people who could help you. You sure would like to talk with them. You reach for the phone, and then your hand stops in midair. No, you tell yourself, I really shouldn’t bother them. So instead of getting the advice and comfort of a friend, you continue to deal with the issue all alone.
We have lots of reasons for ignoring the potential comfort of friends. Maybe you are afraid they will think your issues are silly. Perhaps you haven’t spoken to that old friend in years. Maybe you’ve had a spat. Or perhaps you fear your friend just wouldn’t understand.
Let me ask you a question. If that person were to call you up and ask for your advice, would you help him or her? I bet you would. In fact, you would probably go to extraordinary lengths to help. Most everyone likes being asked for advice or assistance. It makes us feel important and valued. So why not show your friends that same respect and give them the opportunity to serve?
Most of all, remember: whether you have a friend to call or not, there is always Someone you can reach out to for help. You don’t even have to pick up the phone. His name is Jesus, and you can connect to His line anytime through prayer. He’s waiting—why don’t you give Him a call?
