This is Bertie.
Better known as His Royal Highness King George VI.
This is his dear friend Lionel, his speech therapist.
They weren't always dear friends.
Bertie gave up on Lionel
over and over again.
But every time Bertie came back,
Lionel was ready.
He was ready,
because he had already forgiven.
Even before Bertie said I'm sorry.
But he did say it.
They both did.
Today, I loved their example of friendship.
For when we were yet without strength,
in due time Christ died for the ungodly.
But God commendeth his love toward us,
in that, while we were yet sinners,
Christ died for us.
