A Friend’s Love is Helpful

For You From The Word

A friend is always loyal  and a brother is born to help in time of need. (Proverbs 17:17, NLT)

For You To Think About

friend in supermarketA 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™.

Scripture describes the love of a friend as helpful.

This is a person who provides practical support. She is useful in assisting you with your physical needs and making things easier for you so that you can focus on taking care of yourself. A helpful friend gives practical support so that a woman or man can spend time and energy making good decisions for themselves and their baby during pregnancy. She is the person who offers to drive a pregnant woman to her doctor’s appointment, pick up groceries, or care for the pregnant woman’s toddler so she can rest.

God sends specific friends into our lives during adversity. In fact, being a helpful friend to a woman or man who faces an unplanned pregnancy may be part of your purpose and calling.

You may be “born to help in time of need” (Proverbs 17:17, NLT).

For You to Pray

Heavenly Father,

Thank You for using us to show Your love. Help me demonstrate the love of a friend by providing practical help and support to a woman or man who faces an unplanned pregnancy. Amen.
