A friend came to visit me and stayed for a few days. She had to bring her own bed and bedding which she gladly did. Someone said that this was a real friend. We had fun together, played games and it made the time fly by. I’m sure everybody has those precious friends who put everything aside and come for a visit.

Jesus had some very special friends when he lived on this earth. He could always drop in on them after a long tiring day and knew they had room for him to stay and rest. It often happened that people followed him and came to see Him when he was at someone’s home. “Now when Jesus was in Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper, there came unto Him a woman ....as He sat at meat (Matthew 26:6,7).” Mary, Martha and Lazarus were close friends of Jesus “And Jesus loved Martha, and her sister and Lazarus (John 11:5).”

Let us not forget our friends. Every friend needs a friend.
