Friendship and Love | Proverbs


Friendship with another that is contingent upon what that person thinks or believes is no friendship at all.

Love for another that is contingent upon what that person thinks or believes is no love at all.

True friendship and love transcend both what the recipient thinks or believes.

If a man says he is your friend, but shuns you if your thinking changes, he is a hypocrite.

If a woman says she loves you, but shuns you if your beliefs change, she is a liar.

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;

God leaves alone.
