Main Point: The wisdom of Proverbs guides us into stronger friendships that God is creating.
1. God has befriended us through faith in Christ (John 15:12-17)
2. The marks of wise friendship reflect Christ likeness in character (Prov. 18:24, 17:17)
3. Friendship is a reminder of God’s grace in our life (Providence. 17:9)
24 A man of many companions may come to ruin,
but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.
9 Whoever covers an offense seeks love,
but he who repeats a matter separates close friends. (ESV)
17 A friend loves at all times,
and a brother is born for adversity. (ESV)
