14The human spirit can endure in sickness,but a crushed spirit who can bear?
Medicine can cure most illnessses-either fully or enough where you have some sort of relief. A crushed spirit cannot be healed from medicine. Have you ever encountered someone where it seems as if their sole purpose is to destroy your spirit? The words they use, the way they look at you, the way they make you feel-is as if they want to just crush your spirit. Sadly, they too have a crushed spirit. Hurt people, hurt people. You have to ask God to deliver you from the evil that dwells inside of you.
17In a lawsuit the first to speak seems right,until someone comes forward and cross-examines.
It's not always about who speaks first, but it is always about who speaks truth. Have you ever gotten into some trouble for something you didn't do?

When we meet someone new, and you have a lot of similarities between each of you- you begin to feel comfortable thinking, "I've just made a new friend" you begin doing everything together,going out to dinner, the kids meet and share a relationship by association, your mates meet and again develop relationships by association. But then something happens-where you really need your friend and it seems that they are nowhere to be found. What happens to the relationship, it becomes tainted. The other side of this is, when you have a friend who is more than just a friend but is like a brother or sister. I have several people like this. I prayed for them-its as if God brought them to me, before I even realized I needed them. They truly stick closer than a brother. Its the loyalty, love, and true genuine relationship that holds us together
