Friends or Best friend (knowing the difference)

Nurture your “true” friendships. As a rose withers and dies, without being tended to, so does a friendship.

———

“A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.”

-Proverbs 18:24

There are various types of friendships. Some have great depth and longevity and some are short-lived and somewhat superficial. Each friendship can serve a purpose in our lives–some just for fun and some offering much more. The real treasure is the kindred spirit who walks beside you and between the two of you, a meaningful friendship is formed.
