Today we're going to talk about friendship. This is a precious relationship. Each of us can have as many friends as we want, but we have to work at it. Remember the old saying that the best way to get a friend is to be a friend? Just how do you do that? It takes time and effort. You have to care enough about that person or persons to be available. You have to be aware of his or her needs and be there to help out. "Help" indicates action. You aren't going to give just lip service. You're going to help out by doing whatever it takes to solve a problem. Your action shows that you sincerely care.
