The way of the Gospel can be foolishness sometimes and only fools can walk in the way.
Godliness is an exercise!
Friendship is Godliness and an exercise which can be practiced. The best person to be is Christ and not ourselves because there are many things we are made up of that is not in Christ.
The best friend we can have is Christ for he is the standard for every man.
Acts 24:16, 1 Timothy 4:7.
Godliness can be exercised in friendship.
We should also learn to compliment people.
