A Precious and Priceless Treasure

We all would take good care of a high priced treasure and that is why we should take care of our friendships.

One protects a friendship with the correct attitude of acknowledging the best that is in the other instead of believing everything one hears. Proverbs says, "a whisperer [one who repeats what he hears] separates close friends," but a faithful friend seeks to edify and console.

It's costly to be a good friend because you must give your life for the other. Is there a higher price one could pay? But remember, a friend is a priceless treasure.

There is a friend that gave his life so we could live happily: Jesus Christ. He is the best of all friends. Look for him and you'll find a true friend; a treasure of incalculable value.

Proverbs 16:28
