#MorningBrew☕️ 🏾Friends.. How many of us have them🤔💭 (sorry if that song keeps playing in your head now😂😂🤷🏾♀️)..Listen, I remember my mama saying those ppl aren't ur friends.. and I would get soo mad like yes they are😭😞 she would rebuttal with 👉🏾Would they give u their last piece of bread? Die for you? Listen.. didn't understand it then, but as I got older.. I realized she was talking about more than just "bread" as in food.. or death like we know it #LetThatMarinate♨.. and as I grew I aspired to BE that friend that was rare.
😞Don't get discouraged when someone has wronged you.. to be honest, a bunch of these folks only appreciate the benefit of you— what you can do for them—your value, only for a season they appreciate ..once that is gone..so are they. B4 investing in someone➡✔🚨Check them against Sirach 6.. then u will know how to proceed! #Script⬇
📖 John 15:13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends
📕 Ecclesiasticus 6:8: For some man is a friend for his OWN occasion, and will NOT abide in the day of thy trouble.
📕 Ecclesiasticus 6:14 A faithfull friend is a strong defence: and he that hath found such an one hath found a treasure
(I love how this scripture spells 👉🏾faithfull instead of faithful — cuz when u run on low in the Faith area.. they coming to refill you because failing is not an option! You falling is not an option and verse 15: says Nothing doth countervail a faithful friend, and his excellency is invaluable
🚨Countervail is a verb (action) ; 1 · meaning to compensate for ; 2 · equal, match ; 3 · to exert force against : counteract.
🫂Hold on to them ones— they exist.
