It is very difficult these days to find true friends.
I’m not talking about just a drinking buddy or someone who you can tell your problems to. I’m not talking about the people who support you or will lie for you or who loan you money.
I’m talking about a person who makes you better. The friend I’m talking about keeps you honest, is strong where you are weak and would defend you with his life. You can have a really bad argument with a true friend and get up and go to dinner afterwards.
With a true friend you can look at each other and just know. You just know that unconditional love is there, support is there and compassion. This friend has no problem speaking the truth in love to you and you know if you want their support, you’d better come correct!
This type of friend may wear other hats in your life. They could be your dad or mom, your minister or a spouse.
The constant scraping of knives together will sharpen each one for the better. Never can you have the scraping without benefit.
A true friend is made of iron and they will be there no matter what. We serve a God that sticks closer to us than a brother! A true friend whom you can cast your cares upon because he cares.
Do you have a friend like this? Are you this type of friend?
