“A good name is to be more desired than great riches. Favour is better than silver and gold.” (Proverbs 22:1)
Do people like you for your money or for who you are? I had a neighbour who had lots of folks come to his house on the weekends for drinks and social times. But once he stopped hosting such then they never showed up at his house. He was being used. I noticed the sadness and dejection on his face and as we talked about it he explained that his so-called friends had taken advantage of him. He had discovered that they weren’t friends in the true sense of the word at all. Solomon says, “A friend loves at all times” (Proverbs 17:17). So, when it comes to choosing your friends, choose wisely for a true friend will always be at your door and especially when you need them the most.
