When Jesus heard it, He departed from there by boat to a deserted place by himself. But when the multitudes heard it, they followed him on foot from the cities. And when Jesus went out he saw a great multitude; and he He was moved with compassion for them, and healed their sick…. He took up the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to Heaven, He blessed and broke it and gave the loaves to the disciples; and the disciples gave to the multitude. So they all ate and were filled.(Matthew 14:13,19).
In the Hebrew friendship means “responsibility” which means that a friend is not one who just enjoys the good times with you but one who supplies in the time of need when your pockets are empty.
Friendship is responsibility.
Good company will see the need of the other and supply till they are full. You have to have friends who are “full” of something, full of ideas, full of compassion, full of the word, full of God. Don’t make a friend of an empty head make friends with men who are full of it.
Good company is attractive.
Good company will empty the town and fill the pulpit (13).
Good company will build a mega church even in a desert place (v15).
Good company will get people following you (v13).
Good company will get people healed (v14).
Good company makes great ministry.
Good company will take whats little and enlarge it into something great (v20).
Good company deals with the fragments, picks up the pieces of a broken heart or a bruised soul.
Good company holds the fragments but gets involved in providing the main meal.
We all need good company.
