10 Characteristics of a True Friend

What are the characteristics of a true friend?  The list could be endless and I'm quite sure more comprehensive list exists, but these are probably a part of most  that exist.  A true friend is an invaluable asset in life!  Are your friends anything like this:

  1. friends... don’t just shake your hand, they hold it! 
  2. friends... tell you when you’re off your game, and you think you’re on it!
  3. friends... don’t run away from challenges, they walk with you through challenges!
  4. friends... don’t leave you alone in an empty room!
  5. friends... will tell you there’s food stuck in your teeth!
  6. friends... don’t lose faith in you just because others do!
  7. friends... will stand with you, when others flee from you!
  8. friends... have thick skin while acquaintances have thin!
  9. friends... prioritize relationships above personal agendas!
  10. friends... play with you, pray for you, and stay by you! 
If you have a friend like this, you should call him or her, and thank them for their friendship, and thank God for placing them in your life!

  1. Do you have true friends? Are you a true friend to someone else! Jesus is a true friend but everyone needs at least one with skin!
