STOP AND THINK – A friend is someone who knows all about you, but loves you anyway. (Source unknown)

How many true friends do you have? The one who discards you and walks away when times are hard is called a “fair-weather friend.” But the person who sticks with you when difficulties arise or others are putting you down—that’s a real friend, one who, as the Bible says, is “closer than a brother.” (Proverbs 18:24)

A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for a time of adversity . . . and the pleasantness of a friend springs from their heartfelt advice (Proverbs 17:17; 27:9)
