To be wise is to understand how to choose friends, cultivate your friendships and understand where the power of friendship comes from. In fact, you won’t live a wise life and you won’t make it in life if you’re not skilled in choosing, seeing and cultivating friendships. Solomon, in Proverbs, even goes so far to say that fools (individuals who lack wisdom) perish for a lack of friends.

Scripture: Proverbs 17:17, 18:24, 27:5-6, 9, 17; John 15:12-17
