As we look at the life of Jesus, we see a man who enjoyed himself with his friends. While he was serious at times, to be sure, he also enjoyed his friends. Scripture encourages us to “love one another with brotherly affection” (Romans 12:10). Are you a good friend? Do you reach out to others in their times of need or simply to enjoy the relationship?
