A Proverb A Day Keeps Stupidity Away XXVII

CHP 27 v. 6 and 17

6 Wounds from a sincere friend are better than many kisses from an enemy
17 As iron sharpens iron so a friend sharpens a friend (NLT)

Every year when the new season of American Idol starts I always ask myself one thing. WHO ARE THEIR FRIENDS? You know what I’m talking about, people with HORRIBLE voices drive hours to the audition site and they always tell the judges that their friends and family say they are good. Then they open their mouth and the china breaks and you try your best possible NOT to laugh.

Do they sit around and quietly observe you as you mess up your life, one destructive decision at a time? Or is their voice hoarse from shouting at you, their skin scratched and bloody from being dragged across the ground as your make you way to the water’s edge?

PRAYER: Lord, please give mii friends that speak the truth at ALL TIMES and help mii to be such a friend to another. In the name of Jesus I pray, AMEN.
