“A friend loveth at all times…” Proverbs 17:17a
“A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.” Proverbs 18:24
“Ointment and perfume rejoice the heart: so doth the sweetness of a man’s friend by hearty counsel.” Proverbs 27:9
“Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.” Proverbs 27:17
These are but a few short verses we find in the Scriptures that remind us of the importance and blessing of having a close spiritually minded friend. On July 31, 2016 a very dear friend of mine left this earth and went to be with his Savior Jesus Christ. “Bud” Behr was a great supporter for many years of the Living Ambassadors ministry. A great supporter in word, deed, and especially in prayer. His friendship and brotherly love was immensely appreciated and will be sorely missed. I encourage you today to give thanks for your dear friends and if it has been a while since you have told them how much they mean to you, please tell them today while they are still near and dear. Thank you Bud, you were the best of friends!
