An Anniversary Verse

Today is the eighteenth of the month.  So this morning I was reading in the eighteenth chapter of Proverbs which finishes thus:

A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly:
and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.

My friend is celebrating his 30th anniversary of marriage today.  Words are hard now, but he managed a “Yaaayyy!” and a smile about his anniversary, and we read this verse.

It is good to be a friend and to have friends.  It is even more wonderful when God gives a friend and wife who sticks (especially since we men can be a pain sometimes :)).

Most wonderful?  A Friend who sticks forever and never lets us down in any way.

John 15:15

Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.

Hebrews 13:5

…for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
