DO YOU STAND BY YOUR FRIENDS ?

May 15, 2012

I have a friend that I fish with often. We travel together, fish tournaments together and have lunch about once a week. We fish against each other A LOT. We razz one another about how big or small our fish are and who may win or lose to the other. We occasionally disagree but remain friends. He has made a few mistakes in his lifetime that have cost him dearly. As a result of these mistakes, many who claimed to be his friend before, will no longer speak to him or associate with him. I choose to remain as a friend. I tactfully tell him when he is wrong, praise him when he is right and be there for him to talk to when times are tuff. But above all else, I have stood by him.
He recently went through another trying time and I have tried to reinforce the value of his relationship with God. In the book of Psalms, Chapter 34, verses 4-7, it is written “I sought the Lord, and he answered me; He delivered me from all my fears. Those who look to Him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame. This poor man called, and the Lord heard him; He saved him out of all his troubles. The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him, and He delivers them”. If God can sacrifice his son for a world full of sinners, I can surely stand by a friend in trouble. How about you??

Tony Dungee is a former NFL player and coach of the Buccaneers & Colts. He is a devout Christian and open about his relationship with Christ. On his website he states “When you take a few moments to be quiet and spend time with God, you will be pleasantly surprised at how He will lessen your worries about tomorrow and release you from the breathless pace of the world’s urgent priorities for today in order to make room for His priorities.” He is a powerful speaker and an awesome representative of God’s will.
