When we have too many friends, we may neglect those that are closest to us. Our focus can shift from being faithful and sticking by someone to being popular. We may try to rely on any number of our friends and forget to rely on God or we may move away from God because we feel popular or supported by our friends and followers.
As Proverbs (18:24) tells us, too many friends can be a bad thing, but there is a friend that is always with us and ready to help us. Jesus walks with us each and every day, through good and bad. He sticks with us and even carries us when we can no longer make it on our own.
Take the time to thank Jesus for being a friend and for never letting you down!
Thank You for sending Your Son to be my friend. Thank You for His time spent on earth and His sacrifice for each and every one of us. Help me to remember to turn to Jesus for fellowship, celebration, and help. Through Jesus, my Savior and Friend, I pray, amen.
