The scripture for today, September 11, is Matthew 9:11 as found in the New Testament of the Bible:

0-Cover-KINDLE“When the Pharisees saw this, they asked his disciples, ‘Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and “sinners”? ‘ “

Jesus did not make friends with people who could lift him up. He made friends with people that he could lift up. We are not divine, so we need both. It is true that our closest friends should be Christians. Many of us brag that those are our only friends, but that isolates us from the lost.

We must make some friends among the lost in order to show them God’s love, and try to lift them up. They can be people at work, in a club, in your neighborhood, someone we sit next to waiting for a bus, or even someone we meet by accident while waiting in line at a store. We must always be on the watch. Always prepared to become more than just casual acquaintances. Always be prepared to get
“up close and personal” with some of our friends.

Jesus did it. He was our example.
