God's Guide to Friendship

I've been sitting here for some time thinking about how much my friends mean to me. And in the hopes of finding a scripture that related most to my friendships, I couldn't find one...because there are too many! I love the bible, it's the dictionary to life. Here are 10 encouraging Bible verses about friendship and how to relate them to your life:

#1 Seek to become someone's true friend
Proverbs 18:24 NIV
A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.

#2 Seek friendships with the wise
Proverbs 13:20 NIV
He who walks with the wise grows wise, but a companion of fools suffers harms.

#3 Sacrificial love for friends demonstrated by Jesus
John 15:13 NIV
Greater Love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.

#4 Good Friends will make you a stronger Christian
Proverbs 27:17 NIV
As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.

#5 Seek to have loyal friendships that last when tested
Proverbs17:17 NIV
A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.

#6 Choose your friends carefully
Proverbs 22:24-25 NIV
Do not make friends with a hot-tempered man, do not associate with one easily angered, or you may learn his ways and get yourself ensnared

#7 The power of two!
Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 NIV
Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work; If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up!

#8 The Greatest Friend is God
James 4:8 NIV
Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded

#9 A caution for friendship
Proverbs 12:26 NIV
A righteous man is cautious in friendship, but the way of the wicked leads them astray.

#10 Friends serve as advisors
Proverbs 15:22 NIV
Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisors they succeed.

Spread Love. Live Life. Be Inspired.
