A Higher Sense of Friendship

True friendship, as revealed through the application of Christian Science to human relationships, is a beautiful experience. Perhaps we might say that it is one of the most sacred experiences which come to the human heart. Certainly, there is no demand more persistent, and compelling more attention, than the desire for a loyal friend with whom one may feel a mutual understanding, a loving sympathy.

The establishment of a true sense of brotherhood among men will bring about universal harmony. So-called friendship which has no element of the divine in it —no trace of Christlike, compassionate love—fails in the test; it is not true friendship. Therefore, when we are forming friendships, the evidence of spiritual sense, rather than the testimony of the material senses, should be relied upon.
