(Proverbs 19:4 KJV) Wealth maketh many friends; but the poor is separated from his neighbour.
This is a sad truth. We all cannot have “wealth” (1952). There is a simple reality that we all can see. There isn’t much most of us can do to become wealthy. We can increase our income a little and save a little but we are common working people for the most part.
What kind of wealth is within our reach? When I ask that I am not taking away from the fact that it is better to have enough than have a deficiency. But how can this apply to each of us today?
In looking at this word I see part of the definition is “high value.” That would seem obvious but get beyond your literal thinking and look for something to grab hold of. Who do you value as friends? Are you attracted to money? I hope that is not your only standard. I think your friends tend to be people who have “high value” to you. That can come in many ways, unique to each relationship.
So? Seek friends based on their value as persons, not their bank accounts. That should be obvious but a little reminder never hurts.
