Be a Friend

You can’t stay in your corner of the forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes. (Winnie the Pooh, cartoon character)

Some of us are not really out-going people. We like to stay in our “corner of the forest,” and we’re content to be alone for the most part. But a fulfilling life is not lived apart from others. We may have to venture out of our den to discover not only the beauties around us but also to meet and make friends who can enhance our lives—and to whom we can be a blessing, too.

The generous will prosper; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed. (Proverbs 11:25)

You are a chosen people. . . As a result, you can show others the goodness of God. (1 Peter 2:9)
