Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful – Proverbs 27:6
True friendship is hard to find. It is true that sometimes a true friend may hurt us. But we always know if this happens what the intentions really where.
There is however the other half of the scripture that is a warning to be heeded. The “kisses of an enemy”. Or in other words, the intentions to betray. Yes it is a sad fact, but we must not be naive. There are those that are out to do us harm.
We need to beware of flattery and anyone that is working hard to butter us up. Especially if they are new in our lives or just returning.
Lord I pray that you give your people the discernment needed to tell the difference between true friends and real enemies. In Jesus name amen.
