Proverbs 18: 23-24

23 The poor use entreaties,
    but the rich answer roughly.
24 A man of many companions may come to ruin,
    but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.

We are going to focus on verse 24 today....

Are you a good friend? Are you really? Think about one of your dearest and closest friends. And then please look up the following verses:

Proverbs 17:17--When?
John 15:13--To what extent?

You order to have friends, one must be friendly!

Today think about past friendships. What happened? Why are you not friends anymore? Then think about today friendships. Jot a list of today's friends. Then pray for them. That's a nice start to being a great friend! Your friendship can be just the thing to bring someone to Christ, or closer to Christ.

Great advice, Tonya! I have made so many new friendships on the web, and I pray for them daily. I hope that I can be a help to them, and that I can serve God through those relationships.

I am no longer close to past friends due to my moving away from them physically, or moving away from them emotionally.(due to life) I'm reconnecting with one after about 10 years (thankfully). I do pray for my internet friends on a daily basis. :)
