Friends come and friends go, but a true friend sticks by you like family. (Proverbs 18:24 MSG)
Do you have any friends with whom your friendship goes way back, and even if you haven’t talked in a while, when you do it’s seems like you pick up right where you left off? Those kinds of
friends are so refreshing and life giving.
I just got off the phone with a friend who is like that for me and I hope
I’m that for him. As I’ve gotten older I’ve come to realize there are a lot of people who call themselves your friend but really don’t know the depth of the word
It’s a relationship that’s akin to covenant type thinking. In other words, I am yours and you are mine. I got your back and you got mine.
It’s based on love, a selfless consideration of others above yourself. It is refreshing, life giving and life changing.
Never underestimate the power of friendship. I encourage you, be a good friend and gather some good friends and value them highly.
Thank God for the concept, idea, and reality of friendship.
