Exercise your friendship in holiness and well-doing. Kindle in each other the love of God and goodness, and provoke each other to godly conversation. The more of God and heaven is in your friendship, the more holy, safe, sweet, and durable it will prove. It will not wither, when an everlasting subject is the fuel that main taineth it. If it will not help you the better to holiness and to heaven, it is worth nothing. Eccles. iv. 11. "If two lie together, then they have heat; but how can one be warm alone?" See that your friendship degenerate not into common carnal love, and evaporate not in a barren converse, instead of prayer and heavenly discourse, and faithful watchfulness and reproof."
