Practical Help from a Friend

Isn’t it great when your friends love you in practical ways? Hi I'm Lysa TerKeurst for Proverbs 31 Ministries. Recently, Shelly shared with me how her friend Amy loved her in a very helpful way.

Shelly and her family had been traveling out of the country almost two weeks. And if you've ever left home for a trip like this you know the hardest part is returning to an empty pantry and a fridge full of out of date food. So, her friend Amy prepared a delicious dinner that was waiting for them when they arrived home from their trip.

Amy had also stocked Shelly’s fridge with a few essentials for the next morning so she wouldn’t have to worry about running to the grocery store.

Hearing this challenged me to take a moment to think of a unique way I can love a friend or neighbor in a practical and supportive way. For more daily encouragement and ideas on being a great friend, visit Proverbs 31 Ministries on-line at
