Faithful To Our Friendships

How important it is to have friends! Proverbs 17:17 says, “A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.”

Someone paraphrased 1 Corinthians 13 in this way:

“Friendship is slow to lose patience. It looks for a way of being constructive. It is not possessive. It is neither anxious to impress others, nor does it cherish inflated ideas of its own importance. Friendship has good manners and does not pursue selfish advantage at the other’s expense. It is not touchy. It does not keep account of slights, or gloat over the mistakes of the other. On the contrary, it is glad when truth prevails. It knows no limit to its endurance, no end to its trust, no failing of its hope, and in this it can outlast anything. True friendship stands when all else has fallen.”

Now, do you have a friend like that? Are you a friend like that? Be faithful to your friendships.
