"Friend" by Michael W. Smith

"Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command. 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..."-John 15:3

    Our Daily Bread (Oct.30) - Be A Stander

    "Western novelist Stephen Bly says that in the days of Americas Old West there were two types of friends (and horses): runners and standers. At the first sign of trouble, the runner would bolt—abandoning you to whatever peril you were facing. But a stander would stick with you no matter the circumstances. Unfortunately, you wouldnt know which kind of friend you had until trouble came. And then it was too late—unless your friend was a stander.
    Rather than being concerned with what kind of friends we have, however, we ought to consider what kind of friends we are. In the final days of Pauls ministry, as he awaited death, some who had ministered with him turned into runners and abandoned him to face execution alone. In his last letter, he listed some (like Demas) who had run off, then simply stated, Only Luke is with me (2 Tim. 4:11). Luke was a stander. While undoubtedly disappointed by those who had deserted him, Paul must have been deeply comforted to know he was not alone.
    Proverbs tells us that a friend loves at all times (17:17). During times of adversity, we need friends we can rely on. When the people we know face trouble, what kind of friend will we be—a runner or a stander? — Bill Crowder
    Dear Lord, help us to be the kind of friend who doesnt run when our friends are in need. Give us the courage to stand by them, the wisdom to know what to say, and the ability to serve them. Amen.
    A true friend stands with us in times of trial. "

    David & Jonathan Become Friends

    "1 After David had finished talking with Saul, Jonathan became one in spirit with David, and he loved him as himself. 2 From that day Saul kept David with him and did not let him return to his father's house. 3 And Jonathan made a covenant with David because he loved him as himself. 4 Jonathan took off the robe he was wearing and gave it to David, along with his tunic, and even his sword, his bow and his belt. ...

    1 Samuel 19: 1-7
    " 1 Saul told his son Jonathan and all the attendants to kill David. But Jonathan was very fond of David 2 and warned him, "My father Saul is looking for a chance to kill you. Be on your guard tomorrow morning; go into hiding and stay there. 3 I will go out and stand with my father in the field where you are. I'll speak to him about you and will tell you what I find out."
    4 Jonathan spoke well of David to Saul his father and said to him, "Let not the king do wrong to his servant David; he has not wronged you, and what he has done has benefited you greatly. 5 He took his life in his hands when he killed the Philistine. The LORD won a great victory for all Israel, and you saw it and were glad. Why then would you do wrong to an innocent man like David by killing him for no reason?"
    6 Saul listened to Jonathan and took this oath: "As surely as the LORD lives, David will not be put to death."
    7 So Jonathan called David and told him the whole conversation. He brought him to Saul, and David was with Saul as before. ...

    1 Samuel 20:1-42 David and Jonathan
    "... 1 Then David fled from Naioth at Ramah and went to Jonathan and asked, "What have I done? What is my crime? How have I wronged your father, that he is trying to take my life?" ...

    "I Pray You Enough--is an original adaptation of a poem of the same title. It reminds us that sometimes, it is more profitable to our faith to pray those things that, in many ways, seem so seem disagreeable."
