Have you ever wondered what true friendship looks like? What it should provide? How it forms? If you’re a Christian, you know that the Bible is the source of much wisdom concerning every area of life, and the case of friendship is no different.
God did not make us to be alone. To that end, He designed relationships—not just of the marital and familial kind, but friendships as well. Friendships fill the gaps in our lives, providing us with a wide variety of support, love, and entertainment. Not only that, but God has left us written testaments to the power of friendship, and of what it looks like at its best, so that we can know how to go about being a friend.
Take a look at these 5 great examples of friendships in the Bible, the important lessons we can take from each of them.
