Be a friend indeed

"A man that hath friends must show himself friendly and there's a friend that sticketh closer than a brother"{Prov 18:24}  I recently had an opportunity to give a brief exultation on the above tittle "be a true friend".

As i was studying, i realized that the word "friend/friendship", has been abused by so many who out of ignorance fail to realized the important role a friend has to play in their lives.

I am not exempted as i also realized that before you seek for a real friend, you should be one too according to what the bible says in Prov 18:24. So i check up the word "friend" in the dictionary and here's what i found.

"A friend is a person other than a family member, spouse or lover whose company one enjoys and towards whom one feels affection".

I realized thereafter, that, you can't have a true friend if you also have not been a true friend to another.
In case you are interested in being a true friend, here's a quick reminder of who a true friend is.

* A friend is supportive.
*  A friend shows love.
*  A friend should be trusted.
*  A friend is not envious.
*  A friend always tell his friend the truth.
*  A friend is after your progress/success in life.
*  A friend does not gossip his friend.
*  A friend makes sacrifices for his/her friend.
*  A friend pray for his friend.
*  A friend do not take his/her friend for granted.
*  A friend believe in the dream(vision) of his/her friend.
*  A friend is one who bears the burden of his/her friend.
*  A friend is one who didn't leave when every other person left.
*  A friend is happy when you are happy.
*  A friend sticketh closer than a brother.

Can we take a moment to reflect and ask God for grace to be a friend indeed.

I see you all. One love.
