A True Friend

"A friend loves at all times...Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails." (Proverbs 17:17; 1 Corinthians 13:4-8a NKJV) Jesus is our friend, and He is all these things to us. His love for us is unwavering and unconditional. Jesus believes the best in us and wants the best for us. He rejoices with us when good things happen and consoles us in our troubles. Jesus endured EVERYTHING for us, including being tortured and dying on a cross, because He loves us so much and wanted us to always be with Him. True love never fails and that is how God wants us to treat one another. Let us strive each day to live up to the standards of God! Love, Beau
