Hope is the blessed gift of a lingering friendship.
Friendship between team members both on and off the courts and fields of sport activities is the immeasurable ingredient to a strong and effective season. No amount of practice or training can make lingering friendships – it requires a decision.
Our hearts yearn for faithful, forgiving friends…BFF’s that bring hope and help into our lives. God’s Word reminds us that in order to have one we must be one!
“A man who has friends must show himself friendly.” Proverbs 18:24
For LINGERING FRIENDSHIPS check out these words of wisdom from the book of Proverbs…
OVERLOOK “Overlook an offense and bond a friendship; fasten on to a slight and good-bye, friend!" Proverbs 17:9 The Message
ALWAYS LOVE “A friend loves you all the time, and a brother helps in time of trouble.” Proverbs 17:17 NCV
QUICKLY LIFT “Like a cool drink of water when you’re worn out and weary is a letter from a long-lost friend.” Proverbs 25:25 The Message
PRAYER: Lord, thank you for the friends you have brought into my life. Please teach me to be a lingering friend…one that brings blessed hope, abiding love, certain forgiveness, restoring help, and faithful encouragement into the lives of those I call friends. In Jesus Name, Amen.
