Therefore please let your word be like the word of one of them, and speak encouragement. – 2 Chronicles 18:12
I Thank You – Gratitude is an exquisite form of courtesy. People who enjoy the companionship of good, close friends are those who don’t take daily courtesies for granted. They are quick to thank their friends for their many expressions of kindness. On the other hand, people whose circle of friends is severely constricted often do not have the attitude of gratitude.
Count On Me – “A friend is one who walks in when others walk out.” “Loyalty is an essential ingredient for true friendship; it is the emotional glue that bonds people. Those who are rich in their relationships tend to be steady and true friends. When troubles come, a good friend is there, indicating “you can count on me.”
Let Me Help – The best of friends see a need and try to fill it. When they spot a hurt they do what they can to heal it. Without being asked, they pitch in and help.
I Understand You – People become closer and enjoy each other more if they feel the other person accepts and understands them. Letting others know in so many little ways that you understand them is one of the most powerful tools for healing your relationship.
Go For It – Some of your friends may be non-conformists, have unique projects and unusual hobbies. Support them in pursuing their interests. Rather than urging your loved ones to conform, encourage their uniqueness – everyone has dreams that no one else has.
I suppose the three little words that you might have been expecting to see have to be reserved for those who are special – that is I Love You.
You will succeed in Jesus Name!
