A Secure Defense

A part of the treasure we find in a friend is the risk they take to help us see our blind side. They say, "Oil and perfume make the heart glad, and the sweetness of a friend comes from his earnest counsel." We need somebody we can trust to give us the best recommendation in difficult situations or correction in a complicated situation. But, giving counsel or correction isn't all.

Although a friend knows the weaknesses of another, their relation does not change; they continue as friends. The faithful friend "bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things and endures all things" because the true friend is full of love.

The true friend is certainly a secure and safe protection: a priceless treasure.

Proverbs 27:9; 1 Corintians 13
