Tomorrow, I am teaching the College Lifegroup class. I'm pretty nervous, but there will only be like 4 people in there, so I shouldn't be. I am going to be talking about friendship, something that is so important to me. The Bible has a lot to say about friends, and I thought I would share the verses that I'm going to be talking about tomorrow with you.

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

Proverbs 13:20 
He who walks with the wise grows wise, but a companion of fools suffers harms.

John 15:13 
Greater Love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.

Proverbs 27:17 
As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.

A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.

Proverbs 22:24-25 
Do not make friends with a hot-tempered man, do not associate with one easily angered, or you may learn his ways and get yourself ensnared.

Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 
Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work; If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up!

Proverbs 12:26 
A righteous man is cautious in friendship, but the way of the wicked leads them astray.

How many times do we think about what friendship really means? Do we always associate being friends with a very special kind of love? Because I can tell you from experience, that from friendship, the deepest kind of love develops out of trust and selflessness and all the other things that come with friendship.
