A friend is one who believes in you when you have ceased to believe in yourself. (Author unknown)
There may come a time for some of us when we’re not doing well, and we feel like we just can’t go on. We’ve lost confidence in our abilities and don’t see much hope for the future. That’s when having a close friend is so important. Count on that friend to encourage you and give you sound counsel. Then, try to be that kind of friend to someone else.
The heartfelt counsel of a friend is as sweet as perfume and incense. (Proverbs 17:17; 27:9)
