Are You A Friend or A Companion?

Man_helping_man
Proverbs 18:24
Friends come and friends go, but a true friend sticks by you like family.(MSG
)

One who has unreliable friends soon comes to ruin but a friend sticks closer than a brother.(NIV)

The man of many friends (a friend of all the world) will prove himself a bad friend, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.(AMP)

Companions try to be friends with everybody and never really established any real depth or transparency but everyone should have at least one friend who knows you like a brother. Sometimes, blood brothers are more like companions and friends more like relatives. You can’t choose your relatives but you can choose your friends. Choose wisely!

Dear God,
Help me to be a better friend to a select few. Increase the quality of my friendships. Give me discernment to know who to pour into and who to withdraw from (and just pray for them from a far). My success depends upon my lifeline connection to real friends. Help me to stay connected to real brothers and not unreliable companions.

In Jesus Name,
Amen
