You need to learn how to stand up for your friends. It is called commitment. But I have to give a warning right here: don’t be committed to evil. That being said, let’s look at the little story of Ann.
Ann just couldn’t hold it in any longer.
“Stop lying!” She lashed out at Janet and the rest of the girls. “Sandra is not like that. She is my friend and I don’t like that you are talking bad about her behind her.”
Imagine if you were a friend like Ann. You wouldn’t stand back and watch others run your friend down, saying wrong things about them.
I am sure Sandra would have been mightily happy to see how Ann fought to keep her reputation safe.
Being a good friend entails you shutting up people when they talk bad about your friend. You know what they are saying is not the truth. You want the world to know what the truth is.
Jonathan defended David before Saul. He knew the type of person and friend David was, that was why he was able to defend him. He didn’t care that his father would rebuke him. All he cared for was that no one would smear David’s name in the mud in his presence.
May God give you the grace to be a friend that stands to defend your friends, Amen.
God bless you.
Lord, help me to stand and defend my friends against backbiters in Jesus name. Amen.
Will you stand up for your friend today?
I will stand up for my friends, at any cost.
