A Model Friend!

Jay has become really good friends with a dog named Daisy. I often find them cuddled on the couch, chasing each other around the house and hanging out in Daisy’s cage together.

Daisy is a very loyal furry friend. She is there when Jay wants to snuggle, play, wrestle or watch Spider-Man. As friendly as Daisy is, her friendship can never compare to the friend we find in Jesus. 

Jesus models the perfect characteristics of a true friend. 

He is…

  1. Faithful
  2. Compassionate 
  3. Kind,
  4. Forgiving
  5. Loving (without limits) 

The list doesn’t end at five. These are just a few of the many words we can use to describe Jesus as a friend. Most importantly, He sacrificed His life just so we could experience forgiveness and grace. 

The friends we make in life are important and we can find many characteristics of a true friend in many of them. However, no earthly friend will ever measure up to the friend Jesus is and always will be. If you haven’t made Jesus your ultimate friend by asking Him to be the center of your life, reach out. I would love to walk you through that process. 

As for the rest of us, this year when you are feeling lonely, forgotten, betrayed by “friends” remember that Jesus is still walking with you. He has never and will never walk away. Also, this year let’s all strive to be the friend Jesus has modeled for us so well. 

What characteristic would you use to describe Jesus as a friend? 

“Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.”

John 15:13

Howdy! I am passionate about sharing simple God lessons through everyday real life events in my daily life. I’ve been writing since I was 11. What started off as a way to escape or cope with the uncertainty of life, has turned into a calling. I do believe that God has called me to share what He has placed on my heart with all of you! I recently published a children’s book The Chicks Save Easter. You can find it on amazon. https://www.amazon.com/Chicks-Save-Easter-Helena-Rayos/dp/B086Y6K19M I pray God finds you where you are and you allow Him to take you where He has called you to love and serve Him.
