True Wealth


Take a moment…and give thanks for your friends.

(Listen to my song “Come to Jesus” by clicking HERE)


Sirach 6:14-15

A faithful friend is a sturdy shelter; he who finds one finds a treasure. A faithful friend is beyond price, no sum can balance his worth.


Take a moment to cherish any true friendship you may have.

Such a friend is with you both in the good times and the bad.

And if by chance you yearn to find such a friend…know that you always have that in Jesus. I know that sounds trite…but I know it to be true.

Jesus showed us this in the way he reached out to all people…especially the broken, lonely and rejected.

So you know that he will never abandon you and is always with you and for you.

If you would prefer to think of this Divine Companion as “Spirit” or “God” or “Love” then use whatever word you like.

The Love that made you could never leave you.

Have faith that this is truth…and then look around you.

Who in your life needs such a friend?

Could that friend be you?
