"A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly; and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother." Psalm 18:24
Some of us are blessed with many "friends", but often we only have 1 or 2 really close friends on whom we can really depend. The others are more acquaintances instead of friends. They don't have time to help when we need it or don't truly listen when we need an ear. They're more interested in talking about themselves than listening to you. Unfortunately as we get older, we have fewer true friends too. Our lives tend to go in different directions. Some get married and have families, others don't. It's a blessing to meet/make new friends as our lives change, but to do that we "must shew [ourselves] friendly"!
Praise the Lord HE is always with us regardless!
