WHAT IS COMPANIONSHIP?

One whose husband had recently passed on asked herself squarely: "What is companionship? Can it ever be lost?" Instantly her thought turned to the Bible promise (Ps. 119:63, 64): "I am a companion of all them that fear thee, and of them that keep thy precepts. The earth, O Lord, is full of thy mercy." As she pondered the word "companion," she realized that it means friend, and that friendship involves both giving and sharing. As a first step toward this process of sharing, she decided that she would invite another who had passed through a similar experience of seeming loss to enjoy her home with her. Through this mutually helpful companionship, she found that many opportunities for joyous growth were unfolded.

Again the Psalmist writes (Ps. 68:5, 6): "A father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows, is God in his holy habitation. God setteth the solitary in families." In this holy habitation of God, divine Love, peace and satisfaction are ever present. The Bible is replete with promises of love and friendship, showing that the Father-Mother of all is forever giving succor and joy to those who turn to Him for comfort.
