As Proverbs 27:17 put it, Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.
Everybody needs someone
in whom they can confide;
someone who can face the sum
of us, and not go run and hide.
Everybody needs a friend
who'll listen to a broken heart,
and in the silence help to mend
that which has been torn apart.
Everybody needs a pal
who will stay and lend a hand
to repair a wrecked and fallen wall
even though he may not understand
the hurt that brought you to this place,
but only of your need for grace.
Here's Ben E. King, with Stand By Me.
