A Quick Daily Study: Stanza 34

Whoa…I’m running late! My body must be tired because I woke up an hour late. Maybe it was the cake that I had last night. Yes, Y’all. I was SUPER naughty with my diet this week but I had some of the best food. That’s ok. I’ll get back on my diet.

I’ll start here and hopefully, the rest of the day will fall into place (not so behind).

Pocket Version:
Long is and indirect the way to a bad
friend’s, though by the road he dwell;
but to a good friend’s the paths lie direct,
though he lives far away.

Chisholm:
It is a long way to the false friend
though he dwell by the road.
but a straight way lies to the good friend,
though he lives far away.

I think these hold true even in today’s society and even more so among heathens. I find that my husband and I will travel for an hour or so to be with kindred. It’s long nights, great conversation, and so much knowledge and information going around. It’s those trips we look forward too. Although my husband and I both agreed that if we are taking our son along the dangerous road conditions during the winter we will not attend.  What I’m saying it doesn’t matter the distance it’s worth the trip. Now, with fake friends, it’s a hassle and feels stressful to even attempt a get-together. I have some of those types of friends that live in my town and I feel so much stress just dealing with the thought of the situation. Basically, it doesn’t matter how far the visit it’s with a pure purpose for a true friend. The fake ones take longer to get to and it doesn’t matter how long the distance.
