A true friend

A true friend can multiply your joy and divide our sorrow.
In your lifetime you will have thousands of acquaintances, hundreds of colleague's, and dozens of neighbors. But you will have only a few friends. That's not to say that you won't have lots of friendships. Some people make friends easily. You might be the kind of person who never met a stranger.
Don't confuse a casual friendships with a true friend. Even the friendliest person has only a few true friends, defined by honesty, loyalty, and sacrifice. A true friend possesses these qualities, whereas fair- weather friends disappear when you experience setbacks or don't give them what they need.
With that in mind, we're going to tell you the name of your best friend. You already know as well. His name is Jesus. He will never leave you, He will never forsake you, and He has already made the supreme sacrifice for you.
"I no longer call you servants, because a master doesn't confide in his servants.
Now you are my friends,
since I have told you everything the Father told me,"
JOHN 15:15
