A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.
Most relationship experts will tell you that if you get to enjoy three true friendships in your life you that are in a rare minority. Everyone will have comrades, constituents, and other types of casual relationships throughout their life, but very few will ever get to experience a genuine confidant. Confidants are so much more than people who simply like what you like or agree with your political or religious views. Confidants are those rare and unique individuals that are in your life because they are for you, not just your cause or common foe. They see you for who really are and love you in spite of it if necessary. They know the things about you that only God knows and could ruin you if the rest of the world found out. They will stand with you when you’re at your best and they will be there when you’re at your worst. They love you for who God made you to be and they won’t let you settle for being anything less. Confidants will celebrate your victories and they will pick you up after a defeat. Even if the rest of the world seems to be against you, they lock arms with you and keep you moving forward. These types of people truly are rare so when you find them be as good and faithful to them as they are to you. Recognize them for who they are, a gift from God. – Love and Blessings, Pastor Jeff
