Most of you are familiar with the hit TV show, “Cheers.” The show ran for several years and was set in Boston. The show featured several characters who were regulars at the bar. The thing that I remember most from the show was the opening song. It had a catching ring to it;
“Making your way in the world today takes everything you got,
Taking a break from all your worries, sure would help a lot.
Wouldn’t you like to get away?
Someone times you want to go
Where everybody knows your name, and they’re always glad you came.
You wanna be where you can see, our troubles are all the same
You wanna be where everybody knows Your name.”
“You wanna be where everybody knows Your name…” All of us want to be there. We want to be among friends.
Friends are special to all of us. Time spent with our friends is something we all enjoy.
In I Samuel 18, the Bible tells of a special friendship between David and Jonathan. The interesting thing here is that Saul was the son of Saul and Saul was jealous of David and wanted to kill him. But Jonathan helped him.
That’s what friends do… they help us.. they have our back.
Today, let your friend or friends know that you appreciate them.
Someone has said, “A friend walks in when everyone else walks out.” Treasure your friendships
