Number Five: Rich in Both Gold & Diamonds

March 27, 2017

Here in the middle of Lent 2017, it’s my joy to share Ten Reminders for Laypeople…but wow they sure apply to us pastors as well. With gratitude to Linna Bradford who graciously agreed to let me share these with you, here’s number five —

Old Friends are Gold!  New Friends are Diamond!  If you get a Diamond, don’t forget the Gold!  Because to hold a Diamond, you always need a Base of Gold!

— I’m a rich man, because I’m blessed beyond belief with great friends.

Some of us have been together longer than we’ll admit, while others of us are still learning how to spell one another’s names correctly. I’m grateful for all.

Someone much wiser than I’ll ever be wrote this of  friends: Some friends come and go, but a true friend sticks by you like faithful family.” (Proverbs 18:24, RDSV)

By the grace of God, let’s you and me try and be faithful like the latter kind of friend today. Deal?
