A Friend Loves At All Times – And Is Sent By God

For You From The Word

A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for a time of adversity. (Proverbs 17:17, NIV)

For You To Think About

woman thinking on couchA friend relationship is modeled on the unconditional love of Jesus Christ.  That’s why the Birthmothers ministry motto is derived from Proverbs 17:17: A Friend loves at all times™.

The unconditional love of a friend is meaningful at any point, but especially during confusing or heartbreaking times such as, “I’ve discovered I am pregnant” … “I’ve been kicked out of the house” … “I got some bad news at my OB checkup today” …”

Consider this: God purposely sends friends into our lives particularly during a season of difficulty, like an unplanned pregnancy. The friend was “born for a time of adversity” to stand with you.

In doing so, the friend becomes as close as a family member – a brother. Like Jesus is to us.

For You to Pray

Heavenly Father,

Thank You for loving us through friends, especially friends you send during hard times. Send friends to women and men who face an unplanned pregnancy. Amen.
