Friendship is one of the most important things in our lives. Particularly when we’re in need – that’s when we really need a friend. But interestingly, you don’t hear many people talk about what God has to say about friendship through His Word. Turns out, He has rather a lot to say actually. Think about it, it was through His relationships (friendships) with the twelve Disciples, that Jesus kicked off “the church” In fact those friendships are still impacting us today!! In this great new series – A Friend in Need is A Friend Indeed – Berni opens up God’s Word to discover God’s enormous wisdom on the subject of … friendships.

I really appreciated the comment by Michael Evans today. It added an extra layer to my understanding of today’s reading.

Michael Adams

I really enjoy the message “A Friend In Need is a Friend Indeed.” I figured out back in the late 50s and mid 60s that there is more than what was there in reality. Later I found out that even though we know that the earth is not the center of the universe as people believe in the early Bible but yet still to this day it is still being interpret as if it was true the earth is the center of the universe and everything does revolve around it. After hearing this message I realize that each religion carry a small piece of the puzzle of truth of existence yet we are so head strong with creating Chaos that we don’t take the time to understand what is needed to understand anything and everything. God gave us a road map to follow but we chose to use it to control the mind of others instead of teaching them the way to peace and understanding. There are so many of us who think we are so high and might that we truth doesn’t understand anything because we no not what suffering is. Sometime we just need to feel the hurt to understand that the most important part of this existence is “Do Unto Others As You Have Them Do Unto You.” Nothing more nothing less it’s the word of God that we seem to want to pretend that the only person that we need to truly care about is oneself. Meaning we will forever be curse with WARS and RUMORS until the end of time. Crying for peace but there be no peace not because it cannot be achieved it because so many people prefer the chaos for their own greed of self worth. If we stop and think we would also realize that we are three parts of the came coin. For we are: Me, Myself and I , created in the image of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. Usually we have fight with our Internal self.
