Proverbs 17:17 (NKJV) A friend loves at all times, And a brother is born for adversity.
If someone says he or she is your friend, but does not love you at all times, then he or she is not truly your friend. A true friend sticks by your side in good times and in bad. He or she does not side with your enemies. He or she comes to you first to find out what is really going on. Many people say they are your friend, but with friends like them who needs enemies. This is the sad truth about so called friends today. When someone calls you friend, then when everyone is against you, you find out that he or she does not love you after all. It is one of the great disappointments of life. A true friend is by your side when you need him or her the most. I guess, it may be that we only have a few true friends. But no friend is like Jesus. It is as the song goes, “What a Friend we have in Jesus.”
God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
