A circle is round; it has no end; that’s how long I want to be your friend! (Make New Friends)
These song lyrics begin with “Make new friends but keep the old. One is silver, the other is gold.” We’ve heard of “fair weather friends,” who stick close to you when things are going well but move away if it might cost something to stay close. Making new friends is good, of course, but keep them close for a long-lasting, mutually beneficial relationship.
There are friends who destroy each other, but a real friend sticks closer than a brother (Proverbs 18:24).
