12 If an enemy were insulting me,
I could endure it;
if a foe were rising against me,
I could hide.
13 But it is you, a man like myself,
my companion, my close friend,
14 with whom I once enjoyed sweet fellowship
at the house of God,
as we walked about
among the worshipers.
It hurts when you are wounded from a friend. At times friends may need to lovingly confront you to help you. Betray can cause anguish. Real friends stick by you in times of trouble. They bring healing, love, acceptance, and understanding. Be a loving friend.
