Why Friendship?

Proverbs 27:17 says, “Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.” A real friend has a sanctifying influence on your life. He will make you a better person.

Ask yourself this question, “Am I a better person because of this friend?”

I‘m not with my friends two or three minutes before they’ve given me a new thought, blessing, or idea. Whether we are at my home, in an automobile, having dinner at a restaurant, or attending a convention – instantly my life is built up and my countenance is sharpened when I am with them. These people are adding to my life because they are a friend.

Why do we prize friendship? Why do we take the risk for friendship? Because a friend, a real friend, is something far beyond the worth of gold. A friend will make you a better person.
