A True Friend is Someone Who…
The common lead in to this statement is: A friend is someone who you can call to bail you out of trouble BUT a true friend is one that will need to be bailed out as well. While this is a silly statement, I find it alarming false.
To me, a true friend is one that will get in my face when I need it. They will lovingly come to me and correct me when I stumble down a path that I don’t need to be on. According to scripture, we are to address our “brothers and sisters” in Christ when they are in sin.
Matthew 18:15 If your brother or sister sins, go and point out their fault, just between the two of you. If they listen to you, you have won them over.
To me, this is the definition of a true friend. I don’t need just a cheerleader. I don’t need someone to always agree with everything I say… I need honest opinions and lovingly given correction.
I believe we are encouraged to spur each other on to greater things. Friends should lift us up and catch us when we fall. I hope that I am that type of friend to the small circle that I call MY FRIENDS.
