Friends fail

Luke 17:3 and 4

Pay attention to yourselves! If your brother sins, rebuke him, and if he repents, 
forgive him,
and if he sins against you seven times in the day, and turns to you seven times,
saying, ‘I repent,’ you must forgive him.”

2 Timothy 4:16-18

16 At my first defense no one came to stand by me, but all deserted me.
May it not be charged against them! 
17 But the Lord stood by me and strengthened me, so that through me
the message might be fully proclaimed and all the Gentiles might hear it.
So I was rescued from the lion's mouth.
 18 The Lord will rescue me from every evil deed
and bring me safely into his heavenly kingdom. To him be the glory forever and ever. Amen.

Proverbs 18:24

24 A man of many companions may come to ruin,
    but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.
