A Daily Devotion for Tuesday, June 6

Ecclesiastes4:9-10


If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up.


I have been reading these verses over and over, and the same thought keeps pushing at me: what if someone has no friends? This may be through no fault of their own. Good people, in certain circumstances find themselves friendless. But Jesus is our one true friend who never,ever, leaves us. He can help us to get up and stand and walk forward again.

Holy One, you are everywhere and with everyone. We need only seek Jesus to find him and be with him. I am so thankful for this friendship of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen

Plus life is simply too great not to have someone to share t…

Men in particular are typically hard-pressed to name four or five good friends on whom they can count when in real need. Women do much better at cultivating these relationships than do men. While I am certain a breakthrough of the Gospel can open doors to community and fellowship, I often find myself at a loss as to how to aid that breakthrough in our current godless cultural environment. That is why I have put my eggs in the youth ministry basket via Scouting.

Prayer - God of friendship, I pray it is not too late for our society to turn…
