Re:Verse passage – James 5:19-20 (day six)

There is a kind of friendship where one will go after their friend if they have wandered off the path. This kind of friendship is responsible, careful, and present. There is a gentle strength to it, that you rarely find elsewhere. It is patient, but persistent. Willful but not overbearing. Life-giving rather than draining. Never afraid to say tough things, preferring to whisper when it does; harsh and loud rarely leads anyone back to safety.

This kind of friendship is a rare find indeed, but doesn’t have to be.

Like a gem, it is forged over time, with great intentionality, and God-centering pressure.

Be a good friend.
