Friendship…from a Biblical perspective, from your emails, and a story of friendship from a different perspective.
The greatest love is shown when people lay down their lives for their friends. You are my friends if you obey me. I no longer call you servants, because a master doesn’t confide in his servants. Now you are my friends, since I have told you everything the Father told me (John 15:13-15).
A friend is always loyal, and a brother is born to help in time of need.” (Proverbs 17:17)
Wounds from a friend are better than many kisses from an enemy. (Proverbs 27:6)
As iron sharpens iron, a friend sharpens a friend. (Proverbs 27:17)
Can two people walk together without agreeing on the direction?” (Amos 3:3)
Two people can accomplish more than twice as much as one; they get a better return for their labor. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But people who are alone when they fall are in real trouble. And on a cold night, two under the same blanket can gain warmth from each other. But how can one be warm alone? A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken. (Ecclesiastes 4:9 – 12)
Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die. 8But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:7-8)
