Daily Reminder on Friends: #9 out of 21

Today I,  ____________________, will strive to be a good friend.

“To have good friends, be a good friend. Show genuine interest in others; smile and let them know you care about them.” – For the Strength of Youth

I, ____________________, commit to showing genuine interest in others today.

“It may very well have been a beautiful, crisp autumn day like this. The Savior was sitting, teaching some of His disciples, when a man identified only as “a certain lawyer” stood and asked Him, “Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?”

“Jesus knew the man’s heart and understood the question was a thinly veiled attempt to get Him to say something contrary to the law of Moses.

“The Savior responded to the question with two questions of His own: “What is written in the law? how readest thou?”

“As you might expect, the lawyer was able to recite the law: “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.”

““Thou hast answered right,” the Savior said. “This do, and thou shalt live.”” – Doctrine of Inclusion by M. Russell Ballard, emphasis added. Story to be continued in tomorrow’s post.

Ask yourself now and throughout the day, “Am I being a good friend?”
