“A friend loves at all times…” – Proverbs 17:17
How do you define true friendship?
Ralph Waldo Emerson defined friendship as, “a person with whom I may be sincere and before him I may think aloud. The only reward of virtue is virtue; the only way to have a friend is to be one.”
Walter Winchell put it this way: a friend is “one who walks in when others walk out.”
Do you have a friend? Can you recognize true friendship?
Many, I’m sad to say, answer no. It seems that finding and keeping true friends becomes more difficult as we grow older. Yet, the good news is this that we can all have a true friend that lasts forever. That friend is Jesus Christ. Do you know Him? He’s the One friend who will never disappoint, never betray, and never disappear. He’ll accept you as you are and be there for you through thick and thin – do you have a friend like that?
