Cars 2 – It’s Good To Have Friends

by Yo Snyder

Proverbs 18:24 One who has unreliable friends soon comes
to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother. Cars 2 releases today, and this time
Lightning McQueen and his friends are racing around the world. The movie has
action, adventure, plenty of laughs, and at the core of it theres a great
message about friends and how we need to stick with our friends no matter what.
You know, Ive always found it amazing that Abraham was known as the friend of
God. I find it even more amazing that that same God who was friends with
Abraham wants to be friends with me. Now, even though Im not always the best
friend to God, hes always been the most reliable, trustworthy, dependable,
faithful friend I have ever known. Even when I act like Mater and embarrass
him, he never gives up on me, never leaves me or forsakes me. A lot of people
are looking for a friend like that, but for some reason or other, they feel
like God is too distant or too angry or too unapproachable to be their friend.
You and I know different, we know that Jesus Christs death and resurrection
made friendship with God possible. So what are we waiting for? Lets start
racing out to share that good news.
