Proverbs 27:6,9,17 A Man’s Friend. I thank God today for my friend. Jesus is the friend closer than any brother, but on this earth I have people that care about me. God has purposed this so that each of us by association can be better. I hope my friend is made better by me, as I am by him. Let us seek to be friendly toward each other and the Savior foremost. -PB
