A Friend’s Love Is Loyal

For You From The Word

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

For You To Think About

friend shadowsA 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™.

Loyalty is the quality that people demonstrate when they stand by you and support you, no matter what others may say.

A loyal friend may or may not understand your situation, but she does not abandon you.

Elizabeth was a loyal friend to Mary. She opened her home to Mary, her younger cousin, for an extended visit when Mary discovered she was pregnant outside of marriage. Others rejected Mary. Even Joseph, Mary’s fiancé, “resolved to put her away quietly.” But Elizabeth was steadfast.

It is this unwavering dependability that makes a friend’s love so valued … and in many cases makes the difference that provides the strength a pregnant woman needs. When asked what they needed in order to choose life, 83% pregnant women answered “someone to stand with me.”

For You to Pray

Heavenly Father,

Thank You for using us to show Your love. Help me to be a loyal friend – one that a woman or man can count upon when facing an unplanned pregnancy. Amen.
