Committed through ease and committed through conflict.
Forgiving when wrong and forgiving when dumb.
Empathy in triumph and empathy in grief.
Keeping secrets and keeping trust.
Freedom to be apart and freedom to be together.
Shared interests and shared ideas.
Encouraging each other’s faith and encouraging each other’s strengths.
Jesus’ friendship inspires.
Then and now.
In friendship, He walked with.
In friendship, He talked with.
In friendship, He ate with.
In friendship, He was faithful.
In friendship, He was betrayed.
In friendship, He was tested.
In friendship, He loved.
In friendship, He rejoiced.
In friendship, He wept.
In friendship, He lived rightly.
In friendship, He sacrificed Himself.
In friendship, He forgave.
There is no greater friendship than that of Jesus.
Jesus offers the gift of His friendship.
Jesus gives us the gift of friends.
True friendship is one of life’s greatest joys.
I love this sweet reminder of our friendship with Jesus.
