How To Know Who Your Real Friends Are

May 20, 2014

Put on then, as God's chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.

Colossians 3:12-13

One thing that always astounds me is the number of people who put conditions on their relationships with others. I’m talking about those people who say, “I’ll be your friend if…” or “I’ll be your friend until….” That’s so sad because it goes against the very definition of friendship!

Real friendship is unconditional. A true friend is one who stays your friend even when you mess up. It’s not about what you do for them. Their friendship is about the love they have for you and will have for you no matter what.

This should impact both how we choose our friends, as well as the kind of friends we are to other people. Biblical friendship reflects the love of Christ and sticks together through thick and thin. In the way that Christ accepts you regardless of your performance, so we are to accept others.

If you want to know who your real friends are, just make a mistake and see who stays around. You’ll find that some “friends” will leave like rats scurrying off a sinking ship. But the real friends in your life will be with you no matter what. Find and be that kind of friend!  

SEEK OUT AND BE A GOOD FRIEND WHO LOVES OTHERS DESPITE THEIR PERFORMANCE.
