Bible Verses about Friendship and Love

Real friend vs fake friend

Let me talk about the Bible verses about friendship and love, Well, it is a blessing if you have a true and loyal friend in your life, it is hard to believe if anyone says that he/she has no friends, well it can be possible too, there are people who actually don’t like to make friends but the reason behind not making friends could be greater than this, well who knows, what’s going on in someone’s mind, unless you have a very close friend who knows your every pulse.

But as I said, having a true friend is not less than a blessing, and actually in reality we all need a friend in our life to whom we can share our thoughts, emotions, our pain, our future plans, to whom we can cry on his/her shoulder in our worst time.

Fun Fact: Our friends know about our condition better than our family members!

Somebody has quoted very nicely that “A friend in need is a friend indeed” means A friend who always stands for his friend in any condition, and this is what a true friend does in love.

Let not understand me wrong, by having said friend always stand for his friend, doesn’t mean that you should stand for his wrong doing also.

Good friend Vs Bad friend

Yes, you read it right.. Not every friend is a good friend, there are bad too, and you should make your friends very wisely, the only difference between good and bad friends, you can understand by seeing their way of work.

Hold on! Let me explain you deeply

Good Friends – “A bad company corrupts good character”, you must understand to whom you’re accompanying with, A good friend will always encourage you to grow, and support you in every aspect of the area where you could excel, Having good friends also show your mindset too, the more you’re in a good environment, the more you’ll think better when you able to think better, you’ll able to explore yourself better, that’s how the life goes on when you’re having a loyal friend around you.

Bad Friends –  As I said above, And I don’t want to write too much about this, if you focus on the above points, you‘ll be able to differentiate easily, who the bad friend is.

Remember if a friend is compelling you to give the company in his/her wrong-doing, then you should stay away from such friend, because a good friend never leads you in any filthy work, rather than he/she will guide you to be on the right track.

Note: My purpose of writing is not to hate somebody, as all are human, the only difference between them and anyone is their way of work, and it takes not much time if they turned from their wickedness and start practicing what is right; Even you should least try your best if any of your friends indulge in bad works, you must give your 100% to change him through God, Many times your efforts and prayer let God to help you, and what could be your greater joy, if you get your friends back in normal life.

Well, there is one more friendship, which people don’t know, many knew but they suppressed it, i.e. the Love of Jesus, yes he gave his life for us, he died for our sin, Jesus is not only our father, but he also considered as a friend so we should too, so who give their life for someone sin, only a true friend, but wait you don’t have to give your life to show love, he already paid, you just only have to love each other.

I tried to give you every possible point about having a good friend, but now which I am going to share is much more important than the above points.

Are you ready?

You know the Bible clearly says that A breastfeeding mother can leave her child in their condition but I will never, you know he is a great father and he is a great friend too, he can take care of us more than anyone, he does too, and he is still doing.

Maybe it’s hard to digest but yes sometimes it can be true, that your loyal and true friends can stab and deceive you, but Jesus will never.

It doesn’t mean that you should start suspecting your friends every time, well let me tell you, that he’s God, he is more respectable than anything in this world, but he still became a man for us, to be like us.

What I want to make you understand that don’t give more priority to human than God, he is above, if you want a friend then make him your friend, trust me you’ll much happier than ever, Well it doesn’t mean you should not make your friends, and also it’s not have a God intention to apart you from this world.

You know he cares for you and he knows better than you and anyone, trust in him. And live the fullest life.
