Sermon Notes:

A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother (Proverbs 18:24)

A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for a time of adversity. (Proverbs 17:17)

The righteous choose their friends carefully, but the way of the wicked leads them astray. (Proverbs 12:26)

Make no friendship with a man given to anger, nor go with a wrathful man, lest you learn his ways, and entangle yourself in a snare. (Proverbs 22:24-25)

Better is open rebuke than hidden love. Faithful are the wounds of a friend; profuse are the kisses of an enemy. (Proverbs 27:5-6)

Whoever covers an offense seeks love, but he who repeats a matter separates close friends. A rebuke goes deeper into a man of understanding than a hundred blows into a fool. (Proverbs 17:9-10)

Anxiety in a man's heart weighs him down, but a good word makes him glad. (Proverbs 12:25)

Oil and perfume make the heart glad, and the sweetness of a friend comes from his earnest counsel. (Proverbs 27:9)

Better a small serving of vegetables with love than a fattened calf with hatred. (Proverbs 15:17)

The poor is disliked even by his neighbour, but the rich has many friends (Proverbs 14:20)

A dishonest man spreads strife, and a whisperer separates close friends. (Proverbs 16:28)

Do not rebuke an older man but encourage him as you would a father, younger men as brothers, older women as mothers, younger women as sisters, in all purity. (1 Timothy 5:1-2)

Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. (John 15:13)
