How To Know A Good Friend

Reading Time: 2 minutes


Look at the following scenario and pick up lessons from it.

Ade didn’t say a word. He sat still and quiet while his friend cried. Tola, his best friend at school, just lost his dad and they were in his friend’s room right now.

Tola’s pillows were wet with his tears, the bed covers rough and halfway down on the floor.

His cries echoed throughout the room as he laid on the bed.

There was nothing Ade could do other than to sit and wait for his friend to talk when he felt like it.

Though deeply saddened to see his friend like this, there was nothing he could do, but to pray that God would comfort Tola for the loss and of course, stay by his side.

A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother. – Proverbs18:24

When a friend is in a state like Tola is, the only thing to do is pray for them like Ade is doing and ensuring that you are by them. Don’t try to talk unless they ask you to or do so themselves.

Never expect them to hurry out of their grief or tell them to. They need the time to grieve and mourn their loss as much as they have to.

All they need is your silence and presence. They need your support.

That is what is it means to hold the hand of a friend. You let them know that you are available for them. Your care doesn’t have to be in words but in action most times.

Only God will comfort them for their loss as the bible tells us.

May the Lord make you a good friend at all times. amen.

Lord, make me a good friend that will be there for my friends when they are in their lowest moments. Help me to hold their hands all through in Jesus name, amen.

Action plan:
When next you see a friend going through a tough time, pray for and support them.

I am a friend in need and indeed.
