Today's Daily words of encouragement word is Friend: which means one who is known, liked, trusted, loved etc; or an ally or supporter. a friend is blessing, if they are indeed a true friend. We have to be careful though, because everyone  that says they're your friend, aren't your your friend. The bible tells us that" A man that hath friends just shew himself friendly; and there is a friend that sticketh closer than  a brother." This is the kind od friend that we should love,and cherish because of his  love, righteousness and trustworthiness. True friends are indeed hard to find, but when God blesses us to find one, it's in our best interest to keep them.

The bible also says That" wealth maketh many friends, but the poor is separated from his neighbor" which means , if you got money, you will have endless friends, but they will disappear as soon as your money is gone; this is what you call a friend in name only.  If we are poor then we';re separated from our neighbor, that's sad because some of the poorest people have genuine hearts of gold and will they will stand by you and support you to the end, whether you have money or not/.

      Boy this hub opens a can of worms for me.

      I never called myself a "friend" person. As an Army brat and victim of backstabbing via a couple of "best" friends I tend to shy away from this type of relationship.

      I have more friends on this site than in my entire lifetime. I do have one best friend of 17 years, but even her I keep at arms length. My family and husband are my closet friends. My house is the dedicated "bad" neighbor home, too many people call themselves being neighborly and are merely nosy and envious. Good fences make good neighbors.

      I also had many friend, I thought, who came to the house for parties and dinner. When I got divorce because I couldn't take his treatment of me and our son anymore -- not even a Cristmas card apart from three. When you have trouble you find out the true friends.

      Frienship is often hard to recognize. I have noticed that when I was really poor that some people had a very different attitude toward me.It can be shocking.
