I have been thinking a lot about friendship lately. True, deep friendship. The kind that has been through the fire of difficulty and come out more refined and stronger. I looked up some friendship verses in Proverbs this morning. These are the verses I don't want to forget. The things I want to practice.
Love prospers when a fault is forgiven,but dwelling on it separates close friends.
A friend is always loyal
There are “friends” who destroy each other,but a real friend sticks closer than a brother.
Wounds from a sincere friend are better than many kisses from an enemy.
The heartfelt counsel of a friend is as sweet as perfume and incense
As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend.
To flatter friends is to lay a trap for their feet.
And to my friends that make my life so much richer, who love me, challenge me, and believe in me when I have failed them time and time again, who have made me better by their presence in my life, Thank you.
