‘Wounds from a friend can be trusted, but an enemy multiplies kisses.’ Proverbs 27v6 (http://bit.ly/1wmE8w7)
Say what? I mean ‘Wounds or kisses ?’ That’s an easy choice, right?
But what if I’m doing something that’s hurting me? Because people generally don’t like confrontation, many people will say nothing or maybe even cheer me on [enemy kisses?]
But if a friend sees me doing something unhealthy – and says something – it might feel like a wound but in the long run, it can turn out to be the best gift ever.
The key is surrounding yourself with good friends who know they have the right to speak truth into your life – even if it’s tough to hear.
