Devotional: Counsel Of A Friend
Christian Devotion about friendship
"...Oil and perfume rejoice the heart; so does the sweetness
of a friend's counsel that comes from the heart..." - Proverbs 27:9 (AMPC)
A true friend will always speak the truth in love. They
will not say what you want to hear if it is not the truth
and beneficial to you. To have that level of friendship
is something special. Some of us may have a friend or two
like that in our lives. Someone we can relate to on that
level. Someone close enough to confide in and share our
deepest thoughts and longings. Friends that we can share
with on this level are a jewel to find and a treasure. It
doesn't matter how many friends we have in our lives, as
long as we have someone we can share with more intimately.
For even if we have many friends we can still feel lonely
when we have no one to share with on that deeper level.
Counsel from a trusted friend has much value–because we
have relationship with them. We can take advice from a
friend when we are in 'relationship' with them for we
know they care about us and want the best for us. Their
counsel is sweet to the soul.
Counsel from a trusted friend
Has much value and is heaven sent.
