How To Be A True Friend

how to be a true friend
Reading Time: 2 minutes

There’s a way to be a true friend. Let’s look at the story of Stephen and Benjamin. Stephen noticed that Benjamin always stayed back in class during lunch break for some days now. Benjamin was his classmate and friend. Stephen decided to speak to Benjamin today immediately after the lunch bell rang. 

“Benjamin, where is your lunch pack?” Asked Stephen

Benjamin looked away and tried to smile but Stephen saw that the smile was a fake one.

“I noticed you haven’t been coming to school with your lunch pack.” Said Stephen “Is there something wrong?”

Benjamin shook his head refusing to meet Stephen’s probing eyes. “Nothing.”

“Will you share my lunch with me?” Offered Stephen

Stephen remembered what the bible says about helping others in Galatians chapter six and verse two.

“Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.”

Carrying each other’s burdens is a sign of true friendship because a friend should offer to help his friends when they have a need.

Even if they don’t ask for help and you notice that they need help with something.

This is what Jesus says about helping our friends

John 15:14 You are my friends if you do what I command.

Don’t you like to be friends with Jesus? How about calling Him your best friend? Then do what He commands. Help your friends.

I pray that God will strengthen you in the area of helping your friends.

Prayer:
Lord, Jesus, thank You for the wonderful friends You surround me with. I pray that You make me a better friend. I want to be always ready to help my friends in Jesus name. Amen.

Action point:
Will you look round at your friends today and see what areas they need help with. You could also ask them what they need help with.

Declaration:
I am compassionate. I share what I have with my friends.
