Proverbs 27:10 Do not forsake your own friend or your father’s friend, Nor go to your brother’s house in the day of your calamity; Better is a neighbor nearby than a brother far away.
Friendship is important to God, or He would not encourage us to hold fast to it. As Christians we’ve known times when other believers seemed closer than our kin.
God has brought us into a new family; His own, where faith becomes more important than blood.
Through Him, our love expands, and we help each other when trouble strikes.
No matter where you go, God’s people are near.
