    The Daniel Plan - July 14, 2016

    THURSDAY - EXEMPLARY FRIEND

    You are the children that God dearly loves. So follow his example. Lead a life of love, just as Christ did. He loved us. He gave himself up for us. He was a sweet-smelling offering and sacrifice to God. Ephesians 5:1-2

    If we want to know how to treat our friends, we can simply look to the way God has treated us.

    Christ sacrificed his very life on our behalf.

    While we won't be called upon to die for our friends, we will have opportunities to sacrifice our own agenda when a friend is in need. We'll sacrifice time and energy to listen to a friend and do practical acts of service.

    Often we're so busy with our assigned work and home life that relationships get our leftover energy, if we have any. However, Christ invites us to carve out time to care for each other.

    This may mean simply slowing down and sacrificing our time, money, or assistance to a co-worker or family member who needs more than our productivity.

    How can you walk in the way of love today?

    We have the privilege of doing for others what God has done for us: love sacrificially.
