March 4: Friendship

 

Scripture Lesson: Proverbs 18:24

 

On this date in 1984, the Special Veterans’ Committee elected Pee Wee Reese to the Hall of Fame. Reese was known as an outstanding defensive player and the captain of the great Brooklyn Dodger teams of the 1940’s and 50’s. His friendship with Jackie Robinson helped facilitate Robinson’s acceptance in baseball. In May 1947, during a game in Cincinnati, Robinson was facing death threats and the taunts of racial hecklers. Reese went out of his way to support Robinson by walking over from short to second and putting his arm around his teammate’s shoulder. This simple gesture challenged prejudice and created a powerful and enduring friendship.

 

Our scripture lesson from Proverbs talks about a friend who is closer than a brother. What a blessing from God to have friends like that. I am blessed to have a small group of friends that I know I could call on at any time. We have been there for each other for many years, as a matter of fact, for more than 23 years. We have walked with each other through some very difficult times and I feel closer to these men than I do anyone outside my immediate family. The love of these friends is something very special. It is nice to be able to say…thank you “Dead Preachers’ Society” for being that kind of friends.

  1. Who are your closest friends?

  2. What does it take to have the kind of friends the writer of Proverbs is writing about?

  3. Thank God for those friends right now.

The greatest gift you can give those close friends in your life is yourself!
