FRIEND WHO STICKS CLOSER
THAN A BROTHER

But there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.

Proverbs 18:24

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
My child, I know what it's like to be betrayed by a best friend. One of My close disciples, Judas Iscariot, turned Me over to My enemies for thirty pieces of silver. And all My disciples left Me in My time of deepest need. But I am not like that. I am your best and closest friend for life. You will never regret our friendship. Have I ever let you down?

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE
The best of earthly friends will fail us at times. Even the closest family member will disappoint.  But You are the friend who sticks closer than a brother. You are the One who loves me unconditionally. You are the One who never leaves. You are my friend for all seasons.

SIMPLE TRUTH

Jesus is the only One who will lift you up—and never let you down.
