Havamal Snippets 44: Be generous to friends, and they will return it

It's Wednesday (Woden/Odin's Day) which means that it's time for another verse from the Havamal 'Sayings of the High One - Odin'. The poem full of wisdom, both everyday and ethereal. (The poem can be found in full HERE):
44. Know, if thou has a friend
whom thou fully trustest,
and from whom thou woulds’t good derive,
thou shouldst blend thy mind with his,
and gifts exchange,
and often go to see him.

Meet generosity with generosity. Treasure honest friends, for they are valuable. There seems to be an underlaying sense of 'like attracts like' and that 'like should be met with like'.
