The Marks of a True FriendDid you know that the deepest need of the human heart is for intimacy? That's just another way of saying friendship. Now, I'm not talking about casual acquaintances or false friends, but true friends. Let me give you three marks of a true friend.
How to Know a True Friend
A true friend sharpens. He will make you a sharper person, a better person. Proverbs 27:17says, "Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend."

Feminism is as old as the world. It didn't just start in the 1900's. The serpent said yea, hath God said? Hey girl you gonna let god/that man fool you into thinking that ?

I read this Proverbs 31 paraphrase and enjoyed it so here it is for others to enjoy as well. https://reststopforthesoul.com/2014/09/19/a-modern-day-proverbs-31-woman/Are you familiar with the Proverbs 31 woman in the Bible? You might cringe at the mere thought of her…the one who seems to have it all together with a perfect home and perfect kids. Perhaps this passage seems like a foreign language to us because of the culture during which it was written.  I've taken a stab at this by writing my own 21st century version.And in case you didn't already know, this woman in Proverbs 31 was NOT a real woman! This passage of scripture is a portrayal of virtuous qualities to be found in a godly woman.Feel better now? Enjoy and be encouraged!Proverbs 31:10-31A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies.A woman who truly seeks after God is rare in today's world. If she were paid for all she does, her annual salary would average around $150,000. Her husband…
