A Real Friend will never…

Proverbs 18.24 “A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks close than a brother.”

A Real Friend will never…

A big city preacher on vacation stopped in to visit the country church where he was staying. He was quite impressed by the tradition of everyone turning around and shaking hands and greeting the other worshipers seated nearby. This big city preacher had long felt that the church he ministered at was a bit stuffy and could use a bit of friendliness.

So he announced on the first Sunday after returning home that the following Sunday they were going to initiate this custom. At the close of that same service, a man turned around to the lady behind him and said, “Good Morning”.

She looked at him, shocked by his boldness, and said, “I beg your pardon! That friendliness business doesn’t start until next Sunday.”

“A friend is someone who thinks you’re a good egg even though you’re slightly cracked.”

“A fair-weather friend is one who is not around when times turn difficult.”

“A friend is a person who can step on your toes without messing your shine.”

“A friend is a person who goes around saying nice things about you behind your back.”

“A friend is a person with whom I may think aloud” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

“To speak painful truth through loving words is friendship” – Henry Ward Beecher

“A friend is one who knows all about you and loves you just the same” – Elbert Green Hubbard

“A friend is one who knows you as you are, understands where you have been, accepts who you have become and still, gently invites you to grow.”

“Insomuch as anyone pushes you nearer to God, he or she is your friend.”

Proverbs 18.24 “A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks close than a brother.”

Who is your best Friend?
