Friendship

Friendship in its highest sense is a quality inherent in God's spiritual nature. Man, His image and likeness, reflects this spiritual quality. It is his inheritance, a priceless gift that can never be lost or reversed. It unfolds to the human consciousness in proportion to one's spirituality.

A dictionary defines friendship as "a deep, quiet, enduring affection." And in Proverbs we read (Prov. 17:17), "A friend loveth at all times." What is it we love in our friends? Is it not the Godlike qualities of unselfishness, gentleness, kindness, loyalty, understanding? The motive of true friendship is to comfort, encourage, and bless. Friendship makes no personal demands, because it understands and trusts the operation of the law of brotherly love.
