Friday Night Light 5/24/13

Proverbs 27:5-6
5)Open rebuke is better Than love carefully concealed.6) Faithful are the wounds of a friend, But the kisses of an enemy are deceitful. 

No one can deny the importance of friends in our walk with Christ. They pick us up when we are down and cheer us on when we are up.  As much as I would like to be otherwise, no man is an island.

Solomon gave  us so much wisdom for living our lives. Here he tells us that even when a friend seems to be tearing us down it may not be the case.

Christ told us in Luke 17:3  "Be on your guard! If  your brother sins, rebuke him; and if he repents, forgive him. " In this case "brother" is friend or fellow believer. It is our duty to watch out for one another.

If someone is always nice to you and agrees with everything you say, that doesn't make you friends...real friends will tell you when they think you are wrong...even if it means wounding you.

Still clinging to my God and my guns,
