Read today's passage

Listen to today's passage 

“A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.” Have you taken note of the proverbs that deal with friendships? What might not seem as spiritual is very spiritual. What about your friendships? What kind of friend are you?

The Message paraphrase presents this verse: “Friends love through all kinds of weather.” My mind went to Hurricane season around where I live. I always enjoy seeing how everyone helps everyone both before and after the storm. Before the storm, people help each other pick up and board up. After the storm, people help others clean up.

I’ve always wondered what it would be like if we could live like that every day. Isn’t that what friendship is all about?
