Principles and Practices - July 20

The Truest of Friends

'It is especially in our friends that we put our trust, and we feel as if we were doing ourselves what they do for us.'

Well, who is a greater friend than Jesus?

He is your friend in the highest degree, He is more a friend than all other friends.

Trust yourself then to His friendship, so that He may teach you and help you to become more and more His friend by an ever-increasing confidence.
