Day 222, September 22

It is, perhaps, not surprising that Jesus's words should focus so much on friendship.  The following is a partial, by no means, complete account of His words on friendship:

"You are my friends, if you do what I command."  John 15:14

"Dear friends, let us love one another; for love comes from God."  1 John 4:7

"Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends."  Joohn 15:13

"Dear friend, I pray ... that all may go well with you."  3 John 2

"I thank my God every time I remember you."  Philippiains 1:3

"It is right for me to feel this way about ... you, since I have you in my heart." Philippians 1:7

So, for today, I am grateful for the cousnel of Jesus, the greatest Friend we will ever have.
