II Samuel 15:37 So Hushai David’s friend came into the city, and Absalom came into Jerusalem.
There is nothing like having a real friend. David was in trouble. His son was kicking him out of his kingdom. He was on the room to save his life. The verse is so simple. Hushai David’s friend came. David got in trouble. He was in many ways alone but his friend came.
I ask myself today what kind of friend I am. Do I go when my friend needs me. Am I going in when everyone else is leaving. Am I there in his time of need? Am I a real friend?
I want to be a friend. I want to be there.
