The Wounds Of A Friend - Poem by Richard Merrell

The wounds of a friend are faithful
That you might grow in the Lord
But the kiss of the enemy is deadly
As sure as the lunge of the sword.

A friend speaks words that are true
To the end you are edified,
But an enemy speaks in deceit
Whose kiss is from one mortified.

So, bear the wounds of a friend
His rebuke will cause you to love;
But beware the kiss of the enemy
That devil Judas was not from above! ! !

Proverbs 27: 6
