“…Oil and perfume rejoice the heart; so does the sweetness of a friend’s counsel that comes from the heart…” – Proverbs 27: 9

A true friend will always speak the truth in love. They will not say what you want to hear if it is not the truth and beneficial to you. To have that level of friendship is something special. Some of us may have a friend or two like that in our lives. Someone we can relate to on that level. Someone close enough to confide in and share our deepest thoughts and longings. Friends that we can share with on this level are a jewel to find and a treasure. It doesn’t matter how many friends we have in our lives, as long as we have someone we can share with more intimately. For even if we have many friends we can still feel lonely when we have no one to share with on that deeper level.

Counsel from a trusted friend has much value – for we have relationship with them. We can take advice from a friend when we are in ‘relationship’ with them for we know they care about us and want the best for us. Their counsel is sweet to the soul.

Counsel from a trusted friend
Has much value and is heaven sent.
