His generosity in our friendships

RE Verse reading–Acts 4:36-37, 11:19-26, 15:36-40 (day seven)  “And he left for Tarsus to look for Saul” (11:25)  Part of God’s generosity is poured out on us in the form of friendships.  This week as I have read the story of Barnabus (Son of Encouragement) and his protege Paul, I have thought back over the people who have discipled, inspired, corrected and shaped me.  Family, friends, professors, pastors. . .people who believed in me when I didn’t believe in myself.  A time or two, they came to find me in one place because I was needed in another.  Looking back, there are no words to express my gratitude for their influence.  Who knew?  When God wants to pour out His grace, He often uses a friend to deliver the needed strength.  “I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always offering prayer for joy in my every prayer for you all”  (Philippians 1:3-4)  You know who you are.  I am grateful.
