Exodus 33:11 “The Lord would speak to Moses face to face, as a man speaks with his friend. Then Moses would return to the camp, but his young aide Joshua son of Num did not leave the tent.” God wants his people to talk face to face not of text or face book or phone calls but face to face.
Proverbs 17:17 “A friend loves at all times, and brother is born for adversity” I think why people are so broken is because they don’t give or receive love. People ask how do we fix this or fix that and the answer is simply love.
Proverbs 18:24 “A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.” Have close friends then many companions.
Proverbs 27:6 “Wounds from a friend can be trusted, but an enemy multiplies kisses.” Your friends can give you advice that you do not want to hear but will help you. Or an enemy that tells you sweet happy things that led you to ruin.
Proverbs 27:10 “Do not forsake your friend and the friend of your father, and do not go to your brother’s house when disaster strikes you- better a neighbor nearby than a brother far away.” Help and be help by your friends not your family five miles away.
