Proverbs deals with social realities and today we are looking at the reality of friendships. We may be of the best character but choose to hang out with the wrong crowd. What happens then? ‘Bad company corrupts good character’ (1 Corinthians 15:33). The wise person chooses friends who are good-hearted, even-tempered, considerate and kind. Wise people should work at choosing, forging, and keeping good friendships. These friendships will grow and shape us. But what about ‘friendships’ that flow out of our work or school environment? How do they fit in with the biblical concept of friendship? How can we influence them, without being influenced by them? What does Proverbs have to say that might help us? But of all the friendships we could possible develop, none can excel the one we can have with Him who truly “sticks closer than a brother” – our Lord Jesus Christ! We are freed to be a great friend by the great friendship of Jesus on the cross. When we look to that friendship we find so much more which flows into our daily friendships.
