Faithful Wounds

"Faithful are the wounds of a friend, But deceitful are the kisses of an enemy."
Proverbs 27:6

It takes courage to confront someone who's behaving in a way that is contrary to God's word, but if we love them we will prayerfully and lovingly correct them. I'm thankful for the friends who have spoken truth into my life, even though their words may have initially wounded my spirit. The flattering words of an enemy may make us feel good about ourselves, but they do nothing to improve our character.
