Thought of the Day June 23, 2023 Jesus, our friend

By 10:13 AM

 "When we honestly ask ourselves which persons in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving much advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a gentle and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not-knowing, not-curing, not-healing, and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is the friend who cares." Henri Nouwen

Do we have such a person in our life? Whether we are aware of it, Jesus is that person in each of our lives. Who has more love, compassion, concern and sincere interest in us than Jesus? He is there in all circumstances of our lives, whether we feel his presence or not. Jesus wants the best for us, not just what is good. He wants our eternal salvation, for which he died on the cross, enabling us to be saved. Every time we fall, he is there to pick us up and encourage us to continue our journey with him. There is no greater friend to have in our lives than Jesus. How do we treat him or respond to him?
