When I was a kid there was a sign I saw every year at summer camp. It said, "Don't say no to Jesus. He's your best friend." That has stuck with me for over 50 years, but what does that mean? How can Jesus be my best friend?
A best friend is someone who you trust.
A best friend is someone who you enjoy being with.
A best friend is someone who always tells you the truth, even if hurts, because they care for you.
Sometimes best friend last a whole lifetime. Sometimes a best friend lasts only for a certain grade or certain place you live. But a best friend is someone you will never forget.
There's a kids song that we sing that says, "Jesus is my best friend. He's always there for me! On Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday Jesus is my best friend. He's always there for me!" And that's the truth. Jesus is someone who you can trust and He cares for you very, very much.
