~Friends~

             Who are your friends? Just a post for considering this important topic in light of God’s Word… Do the people you call “friend” build you up or drag you down? Do they help or hinder you in your obedience to Christ?…

“A friend loveth at all times: but a brother is born for adversity.”

I am a companion of all them that fear thee, and of them that keep thy precepts.

    Am I being that iron, and a distraction for those trying to live for the Lord? If we are the iron, then we can sharpen the countenance of our friends. :) Thankful for the friendship we have, Brytni! Thanks for being the iron in my life.
