Where to Look When Words For Courageous Living

Having Friends Fail

Romans 12:14,17,19

"Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse....Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everybody...Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God's wrath, for it is written: 'It is mine to avenge; I will repay' says the Lord."

Prov. 18:24

"A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother."



I don't think there is a greater challenge that comes into our lives as the challenge presented to us when a friend fails us;.

David wrote: "My soul shall be joyful in the Lord; It shall rejoice in His salvation." and "...you, Oh Lord, are a shield around me. My glory and the One who lifts up my head."

Will we walk in love as Jesus challenges us to do? Will we lay down our life - (No greater love can a man have than to lay down their life for a friend.)
