Many will say they are loyal friends, but who can find one who is truly reliable? Proverbs 20:6
There is no doubt, friends are important in your life and they either lift you up, or pull you down.
Most of us have probably long since let friends go that discourage us. We finally realize we have enough negativity to deal with without their help. So bye-bye friend!
On the other hand, encouraging friends are a joy to have. They always have an uplifting word and a smile when we are down. They are the ones cheering you on along your journey.
However, an encouraging friend may not be loyal. A loyal friend has your back at all times. They look out for you. They are friend enough to speak the hard truth when you need to hear it. They will risk your friendship for the sake of wanting the best for you. Listen to them, they speak the truth in love.
How many loyal friends surround you?
Are you a reliable loyal friend?
