‘You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.’
- The Lord wants His light to shine through us into a broken and dark world. - The light of God in you makes you different. - Light brings with it the warmth and the hope of all that is longed for. - Be a beacon of light and bring hope and joy to others around you.
Prayer: Lord, may my life be one of purpose and destiny, as I reflect and shine Your light into the world around me. Cause me to be a beacon of hope, a lighthouse of protection, and a source of comfort to others. Amen.

What Would The Characteristics Of An Ideal Friend Be?
December 23, 2019
WHAT WOULD THE CHARACTERISTICS OF AN IDEAL FRIEND BE?
Have you ever thought about this? Here are some ideals:
1. An ideal friend would be consistent and constant. 2. An ideal friend would always be available. 3. An ideal friend would always understand. 4. An ideal friend would always help. 5. An ideal friend would be able to carry your burden for you. 6. An ideal friend would always have the best advice. 7. An ideal friend would never let us down.
Proverbs 17:17 A true friend is always loyal.
It is quite something to consider these aspects.
HUMAN FRIENDSHIP IS FRAGILE
Humans are unable to deliver the kind of friendship we would call ideal. People will always let us down. Even the best and the longest standing friend will fail us and not live up to our expectations from time to time. The writer of the book of Psalms experienced this:
Psalm 41:9 Even my best friend has turned against me—a man I completely trusted; how often we ate together.
This is what makes human friendship such a delicate balance. Yet, each one of us is looking for someone we can completely trust, someone to whom we can entrust ourselves. There is Someone who wants to be our friend. Someone who can be trusted totally and completely.
