You really touched on the many components of a godly friendship in this poem. Friendships can be either selfish of unselfish. This was a reminder of how to be an unselfish friend.

There were a lot of great phrases in this piece. I especially liked the "gracefully accepting less" line. We should all aspire to be such a friend!

Finding ways to bring joy and laughter into the relationship is very important. It shows the thoughtfulness and unselfishness that are not so often found in many people.
