Proverbs 17:17 VOICE
We fall short of being true friends in so many ways, don’t we?
It can hurt so deeply when those we thought were “friends” betray, slander, or reject us. But we have to guard our hearts from bitterness or from putting up walls that won’t let anyone in or let any of our love out. It’s hard, isn’t it?

“There must be Someone in heaven who knows the truth about me,
in highest heaven, some Attorney who can clear my name—
My Champion, my Friend,
while I’m weeping my eyes out before God.
I appeal to the One who represents mortals before God
as a neighbor stands up for a neighbor.”
Job 16:19-21 The Message
“One who has unreliable friends
soon comes to ruin,
but there is a friend
who sticks closer than a brother.”
“I have told you these things so that
you will be filled with My joy.
Yes, your joy will overflow!
This is My commandment:
Love each other in the same way I have loved you.
There is no greater love than to
lay down one’s life for one’s friends.”
