Are You A Friend?

Are You a Friend?

God said: “A friend is always loyal, and a brother is born to help in time of need” (Prov. 17:17).   (NLT)
Funny, how profound this terse  statement is.  Keep your friendship simple but deeply rooted in the right things: loyal love, and an innate sense of being in a purposeful relationship.
Who are your friends? Who do you love with loyal love (consistent care and concern), and who loves you with loyal love?
Is your relationship based on what you can get, or on a healthy interdependence (giving and receiving).
Christians, let’s develop lasting friendships based on God’s standards.

God Bless,
Pastor Brian E. Kennedy, Sr.

Worry or Joyful?

Worry or Joyful?

God said: “Worry weighs a person down; an encouraging word cheers a person up” (Prov. 12:25).
Are you hurting?  Do you know someone hurting?
Try God’s prescription and get an encouraging Word like (I Cor. 10:13; James 1:1-8, John 14:1-6, Phil. 4:4-8, Isaiah 40:28-31, Prov. 3:1-10; and Psalm 23.  Get encouragement from the Lord, and give someone encouragement from the Lord.  Make sure your encouragement includes prayer.

God Bless,
Pastor Brian E. Kennedy, Sr.

PS:  Get to church for an encouraging word.
