Proverbs Chapter 18
Yesterday was Friendship Sunday at our church. There are a handful of verses in Proverbs that deal with friends and friendship. One of those is in chapter 18:
A man of many companions may come to ruin
but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.
This verse reminds me of something Violet taught our kids when they were young: "Make sure you know the difference between 'playmates' and 'friends.'
Friends are not the same as 'companions' or 'playmates.' Friends are people you can trust, people who will 'have your back,' people who will lead you closer to God.
Take a moment to thank God for those friends - especially the One you have in Jesus.
