To be a friend...

What does it mean to be a good friend, to bring pleasantness to a friend's life? Today's reading contains one answer:

Proverbs 27.9: Perfume and incense bring joy to the heart, and the pleasantness of one's friend springs from his earnest counsel.

Is there some earnest counsel I'm called to offer today? Or some I need to seek?

When I receive earnest counsel, how do I handle it? Do I offer counsel kindly and sensitively?
