Friendship is a pretty full-time occupation if you really are friendly with somebody. (Source unknown)
How many “friends” do you have on Facebook? How well do you know them? Are you regularly being asked by someone you barely know—or even a complete stranger—to befriend him or her? Social media may have broadened our contact base. But it’s the longtime friends that we really value.
A friend is always loyal . . . a real friend sticks closer than a brother . . . As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend. (Proverbs 17:17; 18:24; 27:17).
