Scripture texts: Proverbs 17:9,17; 18:24; 22:11,24; 27:5-17 Preacher: Rev. David Sutherland Date: 12 February 2017
Continuing our studies in Proverbs, we turn today to the advice that Solomon gives on the subject of friendship. The topics discussed include the making of friendships–who to seek and who to avoid; maintaining friendships with constant love and gracious words; breaking friendships by betraying confidence; and the characteristics of true friends, who “stick closer than a brother”, and whose selfless behaviour speaks ultimately of Christ.
The following Psalms were sung on this day, as we progress week by week through the entire Book of Psalms.: Psalm 84A:1-6; Psalm 85A:1-5; Psalm 86A:6-11.
