Friends And Neighbors Supporting Each Other – Proverbs 27:10

Welcome To Proverbs Club
Friends And Neighbors Supporting Each Other
Proverbs 27:10 (NIV)

10) Do not forsake your friend or a friend of your family,
and do not go to your relative’s house when disaster strikes you—
better a neighbor nearby than a relative far away.

Proverbs Club Commentary

Count on friends and neighbors, and let them count on you, whenever needed.
It is a good front line before counting on family.
And it is good for all.
