Real Friendship

I was reading in Proverbs 27 the other day. On the 27th, actually... Some of the best verses on friendship can be found there.

Verse 5

Better is open rebuke, than hidden love.

If you've never had a friend that you could say ANYTHING to, in LOVE with GENTLENESS. You should give it a try. There is nothing like it. The only thing better is knowing that the same person will say anything to you, and with the same love and gentleness.

Verse 9

Perfume and incense bring joy to the heart, and the pleasantness of one's friend springs from his earnest counsel.

Perfume and incense only give me a headache, but the rest I agree with wholeheartedly.

Verse 17

As iron sharpens iron, so one man (or in this case woman) sharpens another.

Feathers don't sharpen feathers. Sometimes it's hard. This means it might hurt, but the result is worth it.

Friends like these are few and far between. If you find one, don't let her go. Sometimes, you won't have a choice, but when you do - don't let her go.
