Here’s your daily dose of what matters most! Friendship is an important gospel principle. Learn here about how we can become better friends in Christ.
A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.—Proverbs 17:17
Do we feel about friendship as the Prophet Joseph did? Do we turn our good feelings into practical assistance? God knows the needs of His children, and He often works through us, prompting us to help one another. When we act on such promptings, we tread on holy ground, for we are allowed the opportunity to serve as an agent of God in answering a prayer.—Kathleen H. Hughes
