Verse of the Day


"I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master's business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you."

~John 15:15

The Perfect Friend

Do you know someone who seems to know exactly what to say at the right moments? You know, that friend who seems to have the words to comfort, uplift, and encourage just when it is needed?

Ever wish you were that friend?

I had a situation recently with a friend where it seemed like my words were failing me BIG TIME! We talked over several occasions and each time, I just did not say the right thing. It wasn't for lack of love or lack of trying or lack of prayer, I just seemed to stumble over my words each time I tried.

So last night, I decided I was going to refer her to my one friend who seems to always have the perfect words.

And I got down of my knees and said, "Jesus, you always have the perfect words to comfort, uplift, encourage just when they are needed. Please speak to my friend. I'm struggling here and failing miserably. But you never fail. Be her perfect friend right now."

Jesus is our perfect friend. He always has the right words at the right time. And the best thing we can do for those we love is refer our friends to the perfect friend.

It reminds me of the classic hymn, What a Friend We Have in Jesus. The words of the song are so true and so beautiful. I encourage you to listen to it today. If you need a friend or need to refer one of your friends to the perfect friend, then may I recommend that you go to the One true and lasting friend who always has the perfect words...

Jesus.






Memorize this verse today:

"I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master's business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you."
~John 15:15
