Proverbs 27:9-10 (NKJV) 9 Ointment and perfume delight the heart, And the sweetness of a man’s friend gives delight by hearty counsel. 10 Do not forsake your own friend or your father’s friend, Nor go to your brother’s house in the day of your calamity; Better is a neighbor nearby than a brother far away.
The loving advice from a godly friend is as sweet as perfume and as soothing as ointment. There is something truly heartwarming about the advice from a godly friend. This is why it is important to cultivate and keep alive godly friendships. Don’t lose touch with your godly friends. Because when trouble comes, it is better to get advice from a godly friend who lives near to you, then to go to a far off relative who is estranged from you. We all need godly friends.
God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
