“A man who has friends must himself be friendly,
But there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.” Proverbs 18:24
Have you ever had a situation where you’ve been dropped by a friend, or you’ve allowed some friendships to lapse? The next chapter of The Kingdom is about the friendship with my best friend, which was being strained by my christian faith. I fought to keep her because she became like a sister to me. My own sisters are all twins (two lots of fraternal twins) who have each other. It made me feel very alone growing up. My best friend has been around since I was 13, won’t say how long its been since then, but a few decades. I am glad to say our friendship survived.
She is a friend who has stuck closer than a sister.
Chapter 36 Counting the cost tells the story.
