As we look further at Matthew 26, we’ll discover that when Jesus was depressed, He enlisted the support of His friends. However, He didn’t just pick any of them. He was selective. Because not all of the people we are close to are going to understand our distinct situation. So, we’ll see how selectively choosing the right support team can be one thing we can do to help us overcome our depression.
