The book of Proverbs has a lot to say about friendship, a lot of it in this chapter. This verse is a little more touchy-feely than most. 🙂
Ointment and perfume delight the heart,
And the sweetness of a man’s friend gives delight by hearty counsel.
My daddy told me once, “You’re fortunate when you can find a few true friends in your life – and you’ll probably be able to count them all on one hand.”
It’s easy to make friends, and find people who have common interests. But finding friends who delight the heart… I think my daddy was right.
