I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.
How awesome to have a friend in Jesus. He knows you, He cares about you and He loves you more than you will ever know. He always has your best interest at heart and He’ll never turn his back on you. He’ll never leave you, He’s always there for you and you can always count on Him. He wants to spend time with you so you will never feel alone. You can tell Him anything and you can believe that He will never betray your trust. There is no friend like Jesus, He’s the best friend you’ll ever have.
Verse of the Day: 3 John 1:2
Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well.
Make sure you take care of your body, but don’t forget to also take care of your soul, good health starts from the inside. Do things that make you smile and bring you joy.

And remember, the most important thing you can do for your soul is to spend alone time with God.
Verse of the Day: 1 John 4:11
Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.
God’s love flows to us and it also needs to flow through us. When we receive God’s love it will change our heart so much that we feel the need to share it with other people. We can share God’s love by practicing forgiveness, compassion and by praying for one another. God’s love is meant to be shared so let your light shine everywhere you go.

Let’s honor these heroes by praying for their families, praying for one another and praying for our country.
Verse of the Day: 1 Thessalonians 5:11
Therefore, encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.
We may not be able to solve everyone’s problems but we sure can be an encouragement to everyone by spreading hope. Share the love of God, pray with each other and for each other. Use your words to build each other up not tear each other down. Be a friend and a blessing to those in need (we are all in need).
Verse of the Day: Proverbs 22:24-25
Do not make friends with a hot-tempered person, do not associate with one easily angered, or you may learn their ways and get yourself ensnared.
It’s clear that our friendships can have an influence on us, either for good or bad. It’s important to choose the people who are close to us wisely. Choose godly friends that will be a positive influence in your life instead of people who can’t control their anger with whom you may eventually find yourself in a bad situation. A bad temper is contagious.
Verse of the Day: Proverbs 12:26
The righteous choose their friends carefully, but the way of the wicked leads them astray.
Choosing the right kind of friends is actually a big deal because whether you realize it or not, you become like the people you spend the most time with. Surround yourself with people who encourage you and make a positive impact in your life. Your friends should inspire and motivate you to do good and be a better person. Choose your friends wisely and strive to be a good friend too.
