FRIENDS HELPING FRIENDS
I just learned a lesson from my brother-in-law. He was reading to us the story about the four guys that help out their friend by making a hole in the roof and lowering him down on a mat so that Jesus would see him, touch him and heal him (Gospel of Mark Chapter 2).
Danny (my brother-in-law) was sharing with us how this story reflects not only the faith these men had in Jesus, but even as important, it shows how they were willing to work together, take risks and do all they could do to help their friend who has sick and unable to do anything himself.
Danny was making a point that part of succeeding in life has to do with the kind of friends that we sorround ourselves with. Your friends can make a difference and help you get to places where you cannot get yourself alone.
Good leaders sorround themselves with the right kind of people! Especially those who make a spiritual impact on their lives.
