A good friend is willing to wound us with loving correction. Though the wounds really hurt, they are indeed expression of his love and true friendship. His efforts are made to help, to heal, to restore and deliver. The fair weather friend however is much like the kisses of an enemy. He will tell you what you want to hear, will feign concern but will be of no real help. Seek friends that are honest with you, they are few and far between, but worth their weight in gold.
Wanting to be a faithful friend,
Pastor Jack Abeelen
