Friends come and go quite often. I can speak from experience and say that friends will hurt your feelings, stab you in the back and lie to you. They can also encourage you, treat you kindly, and be there for you when you need them. But no matter what, they're going to let you down, it's just part of being human. It's our sinful nature. I've been hurt by my friends so many times, but whenever that happens, I know I can rely on God to back me up and give me comfort. He's always there for me. He doesn't come and go. He doesn't stab me in the back, lie to me or hurt my feelings. He loves me and helps me out wherever I go.
