A real friend is one who let’s you know if you have food on your face instead of letting you proudly wear it all day. That’s right, a friend will tell you when you are looking like a goober. They’ll say, “Excuse me, emperor, but you are wearing no clothes.”
We all need a friend like that. Considering how sloppy I can be, I’m glad I have friends like that. It saves on self-inflicted humiliation!
Proverbs 11:20 paints a picture. This is what it says:
