A Friend Like a Brother

A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.
~ Proverbs 18:24

I think all of us have a lot of friends, but I also think most of us have a really close friend or two. The guys or girls that are there through thick and thin. You mess up. They mess up. You get through it and are stronger in the end.

I’m not talking about your spouse. I’m talking about close friends. The types of friends that are like brothers or sisters.

A true friends role will be to not just pick you up when you fall down, but to encourage you. To keep you focused on what really matters…. Jesus. A real friend will pray for you when you are in need. A real friend will ask you to pray for them when they need it, but you’ll already know they need it.

Do you have some real friends?
