5 Ways To Be A Better Friend

August 17, 2020

TO HAVE A FRIEND, BE A FRIEND

There's a story in the Bible where some people asked Jesus "who's my neighbor?" Who knows what kind of answer they were looking for, but the one they got was certainly unexpected. He basically said, "Go be nice to people! Then you're their neighbor." The answer was wisdom they could put to use, rather than knowledge that wouldn't help anyone. To have a friend, go be a friend! It's still true today. Our neighbors are determined biographically rather than geographically. And that's what the simple helps are about this week!
