The Definition Of A Friend

December 13, 2016 Save Article


An English publication had a contest for the definition of a friend. Here are some that won honorable mention:

 A friend is somebody who multiplies your joys and divides your griefs.
 A friend is someone who believes in you when you have ceased to believe in yourself.
 A friend is someone who is there when you call and sometimes even before you call.
 A friend is someone who understands your silence.

Now, let me tell you the one that won the prize: “A real friend is someone who comes in when the whole world has gone out.”

Proverbs 17:17 says, “A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity." It doesn’t matter what you have done, a true friend is going to be there.
