Her simple words stopped me in my tracks. Instead of dwelling on the unpleasantness, I was able to put the incident behind me, where it belonged. Since her wise counsel, her words have come to my mind a number of times when confronted with a situation that offends me. "Why mention it."
The Bible says that iron sharpens iron, and the good counsel of a friend rejoices the heart (Pr 27:9 and 17). Today I am thankful for good friends who help me be a better person.
How has a good friend helped you lately?
