Pray Together

Matthew 18 20 (2)

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 18:20

For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.

What a blessing it is to be able to pray for and with your sisters in Christ. Asking your friends to pray in unity with you to collectively make your request known to the Father helps you to build stronger relationships with each other and with God. Jesus promises that when you call on His name He will be there to help you and to bless you. Get a prayer group going among your friends and reap the benefits of praying together.

Bad Influences

Proverbs 22 24-25

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.

A Friend in Jesus

John 15 15

Verse of the Day:  John 15:15

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.

Take Care of Your Soul

3 John 1 2

 

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.  Do volunteer work, it not only helps others, it makes you feel happy too.  Forgive, let go of anger and hurt so you can move forward. And remember, the most important thing you can do for your soul is to spend alone time with God.

Be an Encourager 

1 Thessalonians 5 11

 

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).

Bad Influences

Proverbs 22 24-25

 

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.

Love is Kind

Proverbs 3 3

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 3:3

Do not let kindness and truth leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart.

 

Love is kind and your kindness shows compassion to the people you love.  Sometimes we slip into a comfortable state where we take each other for granted, not intentionally, but it happens and we no longer go out of our way to be kind.  The Bible tells us over and over that we should be kind to one another.  How much more should we intentionally be kind to our loved ones?  Let’s choose to go out of our way to show kindness to the people we love.
