Friends are numbered
The amount of Friends you have make sense, it tells who you are,we all need friends in our lives besides the the Bible made it clear; " Better a friend nearby than a brother far away".
As a man, i love making friends and i always try as much i can to learn everything i can about a person i come across, i keep track of my friends and make sure that they keep track of me.
Friends are vital instrument to a person's advancement but mind you that same friends can be a person's downfall. Therefore it is very important for us to know the company we keep.
"Show me your friends and i will tell you who you are"
"Birds of the same feather flock together"
"A thief cannot go on well with a priest but a hypocrite can"
A hypocrite can because you he wears a mask and you cannot see his true face, he sucks you and you think that he is helping, he is the very one who use your paste and go out there and tell them that you have a bad tooth.
Our Friends are numbered, if you can count them well then you will be able to fish out those without number, they are the hypocrites mingling around us as friends, they wear camouflage but the problem with most of us is fishing them out.
"The people we call friends can help us and also kill us"
"The number of our friends makes sense but knowing our enemies among them is the big deal"
Oba, ob-serving the hypocrites
As they would mingle with the good people we meet
Good friends we have had, oh good friends we've lost along the way...(Bob Marley)
