Most men do not have close friends. It's a fact. Many men are acquainted with other men but few of us, if we're honest, have iron-sharpening relationships (Proverbs 27:17) or a deep camaraderie forged by walking together through life, wrestling with God and fighting the devil. Few of us can lament like David did in the loss of his friend saying, "I grieve for you, Jonathan my brother; you were very dear to me. Your love for me was wonderful, more wonderful than that of women" (2 Samuel 1:26).
