@Darrell, I completely agree with you

 

Darell's comment on 2013-10-11 14:00:05:

I believe that passage of scripture is telling us that friendship is a two way street. If you want
a friend you have to be a friend. What is a friend? Think about what you would want in others
and do the same for them.
Most friendships are one sided; where one person
is a true friend and the other person just uses
them for their own purposes.

The next part of that scripture I believe is
refering to Christ Jesus. Knowing that friends
are so rare the scripture points to the ultimate
friend, Jesus. Telling us that we have one that
we can definately count on. For Christ Jesus will
stick closer even than our own brother. for He promised He would never leave or forsake us.

I think that Proverbs 18:24 is more of hands on scripture telling you that brotherhood is good.
