Spiritual Sunday And Frienship

I had so many things to write about and then the heat started to rise here. It is hard to work when you are overheated!
I want to share some simple verses today. All about friendship. You all need to know that sometime I can not always answer personally but I love you bunches and appreciate your kind hearts and friendship.

"Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise but the companion of fools will suffer harm." Proverbs 13:20

"Do not be deceived: bad company ruins good morals. "  1 Corinthians 15:33

"And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them."  Luke 6:31

"Iron sharpens iron and one man sharpens another. " Proverbs 27:17

Jesus Himself said this about friendship: " This is my commandment that you love one and other as I have loved you.  Greater has no one then this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you . No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends , for all that I have heard from My Father, I have made known to you. "  John 15:12-15

"Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double minded." James 4:8

The message is simple. Choose your friends carefully, treat your friends as you would like to be treated and know the importance of friendship. Listen to Jesus and what he said about friendship and trust God as your number one friend.

Search the bible There are many friendships that are detailed there.  Ruth 1:16-17, 1 Samuel 18:1-3, Job 2:11 and 2 Kings 2:2.

Please join Charlotte and Ginger for some encouragement today.

"Friendship is born at the moment  when one person says to another : What! You too! I thought I was the only one!" C.S. Lewis

All very spiritual messages to be taken to heart. However, I really relate and love the last one by C.S. Lewis. Thanks for sharing on this wonderful Sunday. I haven't posted on Sunday in awhile, but I did today....stop by and read about my Southern Baptist Roots!

Such good friendship verses. We taught our children to be friendly with everyone but to make their closest friends from those who love God, too. It's be a pleasure watching those friendships grow.
