Quotes (28)

by

To be where others can observe our faults is a healthy thing though painful; but to live with beloved friends who would not believe it possible for us to do wrong, and who if they saw us err would make excuses for us—this is to be where it is next to impossible for us ever to be aroused if our hearts be not right with God. To have a fair reputation and a false heart is to stand upon the brink of hell.
— Charles Spurgeon
(From Sermon #494 “The Betrayal“)

    This is what I love about my friends. This is what I cannot live without. I want friends who will tell me the truth-if what I am doing is wrong, who will hold me accountable for my actions. I am so blessed to have friends like this in my life. Yes, it is nice to hear occasionally “oh you are so awesome blah blah”. However.. if I screw up, tell me. Don’t make excuses for me.
