Solomon was influenced by his wives to the point that he did unspeakable things. My son, if sinners entice you, don’t be persuaded. If they say –“Come with us!” don’t travel that road with them. (Prov. 1:10-11a, 15a)
Friends can make all the difference in the world, though, when we are going through difficult times. A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for a difficult time. (Prov. 17:17)
