STOP AND THINK – True friendship is like sound health, the value of it is seldom known until it [is] lost. (Charles Caleb Colton, 19th century English cleric and writer)

Health is a great example of one thing in life that we take for granted until it’s gone. It’s a shame, isn’t it, that we so undervalue our health—and our friendships? Strong friendships, like good health, take time and attention. So, let’s work at both and thank God both for health and precious friends.

Jonathan said to David, “Go in peace, for we have sworn friendship with each other in the name of the Lord.” (1 Samuel 20:42)
