Food for Soul

“A friend loves at all times and a brother is born to help in time of need.” – Proverbs 17:17

What does this mean? A friend has the responsibility to love through hard times but a brother/sister is born to help weather the storm of difficulties and misfortune. It is very easy to text someone and say, “I am praying for you”, when all they need is for you to be there and help out either physically or in any other way.

We don’t need a friend who sends the heart- emoji when our hearts are breaking from a failing financial situation or any other difficulty. We need a sister who would show up and assure us they care.

The qualities of a true friend or a beloved brother are best exemplified in the life of the Lord Jesus.
A true friend loves at all times.. in good circumstances and during times of greatest difficulty and hardships.. and Jesus reminded us that the greatest of all love is expressed when a friend is prepared to give up his own life for that of his friend – or to forego his own desires and needs
for the sake of his dearly beloved friend.

We need to remember a true brother moves closer when times get harder, and never leaves
or forsakes a friend, even when the trial lasts a lifetime.
Jesus Loves You! He is your friend that loves at all times and a brother, born to help in time of need. God be with you!!
