How much true friendship is needed in this world, but how little of it is to be found! Friendship shown in a day of trouble when the clouds are heavy is so appreciated, but how disappointing when there are none to help.
But there is One who exactly meets this great need of humanity, One who is a Friend in the day of adversity, "a Friend that sticketh closer than a brother." Prov. 18:24. Yes, Jesus is the true Friend.
"Doctor, what shall I do?" asked a patient. "I have no friends in this town."
He said, "You may have one Friend who is never away, but is always near, and is always true. Jesus is the best friend for both earth and heaven."
The last words of one man when he came to die were, after bidding his friends good by, "Now where is Jesus of Nazareth, my true and never-failing Friend?" And so saying, he fell asleep.
May we ask you, do you know Jesus as your Friend? Put your faith and trust in Him today. He will never fail you. "I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly." John 10:10. "The Son of man came... a Friend of publicans and sinners." Matt. 11:19.
