Beware the Ides of March
On this, the Ides of March, Julius Caesar was murdered by those he thought to be his friends. So today, let’s consider how we can be better friends. Good friends don’t wound, they heal. They carry joy with them as an antidote for the pain the world inflicts. As one writer put it, “A good friend knows the song in your heart, and can sing it back when you forget the words.” Prov. 18:24: “A person who has friends may be harmed by them, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.” How can you be a faithful friend today? Find someone who has been hurt and encourage them.
