Statement of Faith

All she did was listen,
That precious friend so dear;
She only stayed beside me,
To lend a listening ear.

 She could have preached a sermon,
Could have given some advice;
She could have said "I told you so", 
She could have criticized.

 But all she did was listen
To a friend in time of need;
And Jesus spoke right through her
When she gave that hug to me.

Now, friend, I am not saying
That we should never speak;
But sometimes a listening ear
Is what that loved one really needs. 

2000 J M McIntosh

A friend loves at all times.
(Proverbs 17:17)
