I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you. You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit fruit that will last. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name. This is my command: Love each other.
A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity. A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.
We all need to be able to express our needs and concerns to someone who will care, pray, and encourage us in our efforts to change.
Prayer: Just for today I will extend a hand of friendship to those who need my support on the journey of recovery.
